Real-time Investment Banking Visualisation

Flowrisk was a collaboration between ZONE4 and a UK based Investment Bank data company. The UK technology company had established a model that could handle hundreds of millions of trading records per second, this opened up the possibility for visualisation of the near “real-time” data. The scale of data causes difficulties for investment banks in the mid-day decision making process outside of the open and close of the trading day where data has yet to be processed.

These screens represent an initial concept for how the trading data can be visualised. Trading limits for individual desks and counter-parties can be used to track daily performance and where limits are being reached it can alert managers as to the situation.

The concept was to be able to quickly identify high performing trades and to better understand how to validate trading standards in line with the European regulators. Reporting and risk management are key objectives for the application.
