Rabobank and Gatelab collaborate on algo risk controls solution


Gatelab, part of Euronext Technology Solutions, is pleased to announce, jointly with Rabobank, the successful implementation of a pioneering algorithmic trading test framework.

In accordance with the guidance under RTS6 for investment firms engaged in algorithmic trading, the solution complements the bank’s existing system and risk controls with an independent, production-like ecosystem to control the deployment of algorithms across several Bond trading venues.

Users are able to orchestrate different workflow scenarios and trading conditions to invoke various dynamic algorithmic decision paths and their associated controls in order to assess the potential impact the algorithms may have on the overall fair and orderly functioning of the market. The automated reports produced for each test run facilitate the bank’s regular self-assessment process.

Deployed either on-prem or SaaS managed by Euronext Technology Services, the solution leverages Gatelab’s multi-asset trading technology stack to provide an independent means to run test scenarios, helping firms hone their algo development processes and risk controls.
