Patsystems was founded in 1994 by a group of [[derivatives]] [[trader]]s and technology professionals at a time when the [[futures trading|futures]] markets were beginning to migrate from physical [[trading floor]]s to an electronic model. [[Tom Theys]], a former [[floor trader]], designed the Patsystems software while working at [[Liffe]]. The idea was based around a hand-held device that would put [[order]]s into other markets with an interface that would connect the hand-held to the [[DTB]] (the forerunner to [[Eurex]]) to facilitate arbitrage with [[Liffe]]. That led to offering clients direct access to exchanges through the Internet; the software Theys designed would then be distributed to locals in dealing rooms or in their homes. Unlike other [[ISV]]s at the time, Theys and the other Patsystems founders were interested in bringing direct access to [[retail]] as well as [[institutional]] customers.

Redefining the Blue Chip

David Webber on CNBC

History

Patsystems was founded in 1994 by a group of derivatives traders and technology professionals at a time when the futures markets were beginning to migrate from physical trading floors to an electronic model. Tom Theys, a former floor trader, designed the Patsystems software while working at Liffe. The idea was based around a hand-held device that would put orders into other markets with an interface that would connect the hand-held to the DTB (the forerunner to Eurex) to facilitate arbitrage with Liffe. That led to offering clients direct access to exchanges through the Internet; the software Theys designed would then be distributed to locals in dealing rooms or in their homes. Unlike other ISVs at the time, Theys and the other Patsystems founders were interested in bringing direct access to retail as well as institutional customers.

Eventually, the company was approached by Investec, a South African bank that wanted to take Patsystems public, which it did. Patsystems raised $80 million in an IPO in March 2000. Theys left Patsystems in 2003.

(The company floated on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) in March 2000 and re-listed on the Alternative Investment Market in February 2003.)

Products

Patsystems provides trading software for more than 10,000 users through hundreds of brokers around the world. More than 50 firms deploy Patsystems technology, including eight of the top 10 futures commission merchants.

Patsystems offers clients a choice of three front ends. Besides the well-known J-Trader, the company has more recently introduced Pro-Mark and IQ Trader.

Patsystems provides tailored solutions targeted at different types of client, including solutions for retail traders, professional traders, API specialists, and risk managers.

  • Pro-Mark is an advanced application designed for professional, high-volume traders. It was built for high-speed trading, in particular of complex strategies such as multi-leg spreads. Pro-Mark's key features include intuitive trading and intelligent order management, sophisticated spreading tools, Excel integration, technical charting, and advanced options functionality. Pro-Mark was named "Technology Product of the Year" in the 2008 FOW Awards. [12]
  • IQ Trader is designed for technical traders (chartists). It contains tools that analyze and interpret markets to help traders choose the best strategies, enabling them to perform sophisticated operations without needing programming skills. It offers fast, easy backtesting and guarantees seamless automation. It also connects to a large number of data providers.
  • SyOMS is Patsystems' Synthetic Order Management System that enables the trading of non-exchange supported order types. These include Iceberg, Ghost, and Bracket orders. SyOMS Pro also supports With a Tick, OCO, and Time-Sliced orders.
  • Patsystems Risk Alert is Patsystems’ newly implemented pre-trade risk management solution. Risk Alert offers clients the ability to configure and manage an extensive set of comprehensive risk checks, helping to prevent risk before the trade even takes place.
  • Patsystems X-link is a software product that allows customers to trade on [[remote exchange]s without becoming a member. It is not a fixed network; rather it bridges separate Patsystems trading domains and systems, for example letting a customer trade on a Chicago system and a London system at the same time.
  • Patsystems ASP or application service provider is a hosted solution that provides the full benefits of the Patsystems trading platform without the requirement for clients to invest in a technology infrastructure or technical support resources. The ASP offering supports a wide variety of end user connectivity options including Internet, VPN and lease line.

Recent Initiatives

Patsystems in Malaysia

Patsystems now offers direct market access to Bursa Malaysia. Customers using Patsystems will now have electronic access to Malaysian flagship products such as Malaysian Crude Palm Oil futures. In related news, Phillip Futures has taken a full installation of the Patsystems infrastructure in Kuala Lumpur. [15] [16] [17]

Direct Access to Brazil

Patsystems completed the BM&F certification process and is therefore a Certified ISV of the exchange, offering direct market access to all BM&F products. Patsystems also offers access to BM&F products via CME Globex, the electronic trading platform of CME Group. This link allows existing CME Group customers to trade the main BM&F derivatives contracts listed on the Globex platform.[18] [19]

Expanded Exchange Connectivity

Patsystems now offers connectivity to TurkDex, the Turkish Derivatives Exchange, and IDEX, the new segment of the Borsa Italiana’s derivatives market (IDEM).

Algorithmic Trading

Patsystems’ AlgoServer provides a framework for defining and developing algorithms for server-side implementation, including presentation of the algorithms as synthetic order types on the front-end.

Continued Growth in Hong Kong

Singapore: 21 July 2008 – Patsystems announces that Guotai Junan Futures (Hong Kong) Ltd (Guotai) has signed a deal to implement and deploy Patsystems technology in Hong Kong.

Guotai would take a full installation of the Patsystems solution. The solution would provide Guotai and its customers with direct access to CME, CBOT, NYBOT, ICE, LIFFE, LME, Eurex, SGX, OSE, KRX, and HKEX via the Patsystems X-Link, which enables Patsystems’ customers to interconnect to a receiving broker.

Patsystems Partners with Hong Kong Mercantile Exchange

On June 25, 2008, it was announced the newly formed Hong Kong Mercantile Exchange (HKMEx) had selected Patsystems for both its front-end trading model and risk management system.

HKMEx would offer Patsystems’ J-Trader and Pro-Mark. Pro-Mark functionality includes options trading capability, charting, Excel integration, spreading tools and functionality designed specifically for energy traders.

HKMEx would also utilize Patsystems’ post-trade risk management system, Risk Informer. Risk Informer will manage margin risk for all asset classes traded on HKMEx. Risk Informer will calculate margin requirements in real-time, using standard margin methodologies including SPAN, TIMS, and proprietary margin calculation. It aggregates trades on a real-time basis and provides a consolidated view in real-time as trades are executed.

Patsystems Risk Informer

On June 24, 2008, announced that GH Financials had selected Risk Informer to be its global post-trade risk system.

The system will manage global risk for all exchange trade futures and options at GH Financials. The solution would monitor clients’ aggregated risk in real-time across all the clients’ trading activities and will provide both real-time monitoring and automatic notification of limit breaches.

Risk Informer is a standalone solution built to monitor and manage risk in real-time on multi-asset classes executed through any trading platform.

Patsystems' risk management tools, Patsystems Risk Informer and Patsystems Risk Alert were featured in Bobsguide and RFPConnect in June of 2009.[20] [21]
