IR Structured Products

Projektinhalte

Core task is representation of (highly) structured interest rate deals in Murex based on deals in SAP and / or confirmations. In conjunction with this objective comes reconciliation (cash flow, call dates, trade details) as well as hedge effectiveness through consideration of hedge and underlying PVs.

Due to funding being the nature of the client's business, hedging is the main objective of these structured deals. The representation of these in Murex is a process of combining internal (Murex) and / or external (client) models in one or more deals. Multi-phased representations are usually the outcome when using internal models only, and linked trades of single-phased deals are the choice when using external models as well (this is due to limitations in the implementation of the external models).

 

The majority of the deals are based on IRS. Though, in order to implement structures with conversion options, OSWPs (swaptions) would have to be linked in as well.

 

My knowledge and understanding of Murex and Flex in technical terms has been helpful in identifying pitfalls (albeit minor, regarding fixing calendars and schedules, etc) in some of the models.

 

Reconciliation covers hedge deals as well as their underlying bonds / loans that are mainly entered as IRS. Measure for the counterparty PV reconciliation and the hedge effectiveness is basis point difference per nominal. However, this figure is misleading for amortizing / accreting deals (especially for longer maturities) due to the difficulty in devising a standard of how to consider the changing nominal within the calculation.

Developer
Projektinhalte

Developer, Murex Flex API, inflation swaps/cap/floors, C++, setup of Reuters real-time market data feed

  • Redesign and reimplementation of inflation model integration to Murex.

  • The proposed new design is an abstraction layer, covering key aspects of both the IR Pricing and the Rate Curve APIs, generic to a great extent, enabling integration of new models by coding only model-specific and relevant logic, with no impact on existing models- code and the framework. Integration of new models does not require Flex interaction.

  • On the pricing side, (external) instruments are flexibly associated with multiple (external) pricing models via configuration settings. The configuration file is necessary to facilitate the generic nature of the designed framework, so the code is not changed for minor implementation nuances. 

  • Also, consultancy provided in setup and configuration of real-time data across the complete flow from provider to the seesions.

  • Code review of the client's implementation. A document concluded the findings conveying tips and best-practice principles related to coding and the Flex API.

  • In addition, the basic framework for the client's pricing implementation was designed and implemented. 

  • At the client site one development environment was shared among multiple developers hindering development activities due to frequent need of coordination. To overcome this, the Murex server-side development environment was modified to support multiple developers in parallel making the mentioned coordination unnecessary. 

  • Also, consulting provided to an extended team regarding real-time configuration and details of interaction between sessions, activity feeders and MDCS (Market Data Contribution Server).

Projektinhalte
  • Murex implementation - description to follow.

  • Flex development for Revaluation API, Volatility API, Rate Curve API, GMP, user-defined sensitivities. Consultancy in design and implementation to other teams for Flex. 

  • Enhancements to the Volatility API were required in order to use a SABR model implementation for swaptions and cap/floors. The enhancement: among others, to include forward rate and underlying maturity. An improvised work-around was implemented using the Revaluation API. However, final implementation was against a subsequent enhancement of the main binary by Murex specific to Citadel's requirements. 

  • The implementation is flexible enough to allow various input and output contexts per currency with regards to the nature of the input ATM volatilities and returned SABR volatility - each being normal or lognormal. Also, due to Murex's idiosyncratic format interpretation of normal and lognormal volatilities, the SABR implementation adjusted input and output format accordingly. (Format of normal volatility is in basis points, lognormal volatility is percentage.) 

  • Model curves extensively used. Rate curve assignments necessary to map revaluation based on instrument and desk to a specific model curve. The Rate Curve API was used to provide discount factors and zero coupon rates to Murex. 

  • Consultancy in setup and configuration of Murex environments for tuning and streamlining the various environments.

  • General Murex configurations (indices, generators, desks, etc).

  • Reporting data (cash management) via DAP (feeding data mart) for replication of an mReport.

  • Market data (MDCS, activity feeders, subscription rules etc).

  • MxML marginally used (very basic import workflow) - minimal MxML import structure for cap/floor, IRS, FRA.

FX (Spots, Forwards, Swaps), Money Market (Deposits)

Projektinhalte

First and main phase of a total of three planned for implementation of Murex 2.11 for Foreign Exchange and Money Markets. Front-to-back STP covering FO, reporting, risk, payments, accounting, settlements, etc.

Joined the project team at the very early stages and functioned as technical architect, provided high level design documents covering all known technical interfaces of the project as well as detailed specifications for some of the interfaces including RTI and Dealing 3000.

 

Devised conventions (ports, sites, hubs, etc) for configuration of all environments as well as a document laying out the framework for using Murex XML Requests (extensively used in scheduling and automation of EOD). 30 parallel DEV/SIT/UAT environments. Configured and tuned the environments consistently as many components and features were incrementally introduced. Set up MxML and configured many of the non-standard tasks.

 

RTI: muli-platform implementation. Murex hosted on AIX, driver for interaciton with Reuters Triarch compiled for Windows as AIX is not supported by Reuters. IDN_SELECTFEED and DDS sources used across all instruments (money market rates, swap rates, FX rates all imported via both sources). Also, targeting multiple desks, linked to different market data sets, with a single RTI channel (not possible in 2.10).

 

Dealing 3000: driver runs on Windows functioning as source task in a dedicated MxML Exchange workflow. Mapping from TOF to MXML DTD implemented in the workflow for FX spots/forwards/swaps and deposits. Deals imported as simple or packaged deals. Financial Engineering principles applied to import linked deals for outright forwards and swaps as well as FX spot deals of Sales. Murex Query/Parser functions called from MxML workflow to retrieve financial data and calculations necessary for the mapping of simple to linked deal structure.

 

Implemented custom MxML Exchange Task in Java to perform specific database updates against a custom data model. This data model keeps track of imported deals per source system. Any number of source systems supported. Target system is Murex. It also offers a mapping of any value in a source system to a Murex-value. Optionally, the mapping can be fine-grained to any Murex permutation of (family, group, type). This framework is used to keep track of deals imported via Dealing 3000, Reuters Electronic Trading and Logicscope. Mappings of Reuters counterpart codes to a Murex-specific portfolio, as well as Reuters trader codes to Murex users are maintained in this data model. This data is accessed via the mapping-implementation (formulas) in the MxML Exchange workflow.

 

Configured the Murex middleware to launch (triggered from Unix) a custom C++ process on Windows via a Murex Monitor Script. This approach was necessary in order to overcome a synchronisation flaw in a driver process, randomly preventing it from shutting down.

Code review of a Bond Pricing System written in C++ for analysis and validation of an algorithm for curve fitting.

Good exposure to Mx G2000, have very good functional and technical understanding of Mx G2000 MxML Exchange Service and Flex API. (Due to my extensive experience with the Xetra VALUES API and the same approach taken in both VALUES and Flex, it was fairly straightforward from a technical point of view to deal with the Flex API.)

 

Front to back solution for managing ABCP (Asset Backed Commercial Papers) transactions based on Trade Receivables. The system manages Conduits, Transactions, Rollperiods, Issues, Offers and Trades as well as static data and other structures, and all necessary and relevant calculations are successively added to the application. Various types of documents (request for offers from trading groups, trade confirmations, back office accounting reports, etc) are created and sent via email and fax.

 

Inception of two frameworks mentioned below aiming at separating business logic from the generic tasks of the frameworks themselves.

 

Messaging Framework: an open framework for sending messages (emails, faxes, chat messages, etc) was designed. The first transport component, an email process (SMTP client) was developed and integrated into the framework. Applications using the Messaging Framework need only to call a stored procedure. (Comma-delimited recipients and attachments are also supported.)

 

Document Framework: open framework for creating documents - similar to the Messaging Framework, however, with specific variations to meet the differing requirements. The first process to create Excel documents from any template was developed and integrated into the framework. Any Excel template can be configured (introduced) in order for this process to create documents, also supporting sets of consecutive lines that could occur multiple times based on data, as opposed to static, fixed documents.

Task                       

The implementation of a workflow management system for loading products into the Warrant Trading System of Commerzbank. The graphical user interface comprised of instrument trees and spread sheets. The delivered application was a database client enabling DML (Data Manipulation Language) execution. This feature was designed and implemented to make the solution database independent. C++ wrapper classes were designed and implemented for ODBC dynamic column information and dynamic column binding.

Ongoing development of graphical user interfaces for the Warrant Trading System. Most development was undertaken using Visual C++ and MFC.

 

C++ wrapper DLL's were developed to enable the use of a pricing library implemented as a Visual Basic application.

 

Implementation of C DLL with only one exported function (with FORTRAN calling convention to support use in Visual Basic environment as well) computing the check-digit embedded in ISIN (International Security Identification Number). Basically, implemented the LUHN Formula (Modulus 10 Double Add Double checksum).

 

Developed an Adapter to the Warrant Trading System, enabling RTS (socket API) clients to be run against WTS (ActiveX API). Multithreaded, covering real time price feed, quote request handling, etc.

 

Design and implementation of a shared memory class, ultimately used to convey data, here the trade IDs, from a Sybase database to a Java process (involving JNI), which in turn dispatched audio and visual notifications to clients (trader applications).

 

Also a small DLL was written used via JNI on the client side to perform the sounds. A utility program was implemented which would run processes, binding them to a dedicated number of CPU's on the system (process affinity mask). This was to ensure that at least one CPU is not blocked and available in case the Java process consumes too much CPU time. (A production problem led to this requirement.)

Exchange connectivity, link from Warrant Trading System to Xetra, linking the quote-based WTS (electronic market making system of Commerzbank for equity derivatives) to order-based Xetra. 2 multithreaded processes make up this application. One provides a constant real time price feed to MISS (Xetra gateway on Commerzbank LAN). Another handles quote requests and all communication to and from either system.

 

An Interface between the Warrant Trading System and MQ Series was developed to implement the issuer-side of a specification devised by Commerzbank, Deutsche Bank and other warrant trading houses. This allowed major warrant trading companies to directly trade on Commerzbank's Warrant Trading Platform. Responsibilities on this project included the complete design, development and deployment of the application from the issuer side enabling communication between Issuer and Intermediary for off-line trading.

 

Responsibilities include major on-going support and maintenance as well as new development. All projects involved technical specifications, technical design and architecture, unit testing, system testing, release management support and technical documentation.
