The award judges said of Hanweck’s solution: “High performance, modelling sophistication and low total cost of ownership distinguish Hanweck, as well as attention to client service. The company has a strong analytical and technology research and development culture, and a loyal client base.”

Gerald Hanweck, Jr., CEO of Hanweck, commented: “Our newly launched suite of portfolio and margin analytics for the listed derivatives markets is already gaining wide industry acceptance. Hanweck’s extensive experience calculating house and exchange margin in real time -- including STANS, TIMS and SPAN – uniquely positions us to deliver these services. As firms confront higher capital costs and stricter regulatory requirements, Hanweck’s suite of portfolio and margin analytics becomes an indispensable tool for effective risk management and efficient capital deployment for the buy side and sell side alike.”
