Acadia’s Settlement Manager Named Best New Technology in the American Financial Technology Awards

Settlement Manager Distinguished Among New Products and Solutions Introduced in the Past 12 Months

Norwell, MA, December 1, 2023--- Acadia, a leading industry provider of integrated risk management services for the derivatives community, is pleased to announce that Settlement Manager has been selected as Best New Technology Introduced Over the Last 12 Months – Trading, Risk & Compliance, at the American Financial Technology Awards. 

Settlement Manager was selected from a distinguished range of banks, brokers, asset managers and vendors for its excellence in deployment of financial technology within investment banking and asset management. 

Acadia developed Settlement Manager in 2023, at the request of clients that were losing a well-known central settlement service and needed a replacement capability that enables global banks, asset managers, and hedge funds to immediately settle agreed margin calls, while easily connecting to and sharing information with multiple counterparties (including Standard Settlement Instructions and settlement status). The platform enables settlement messaging for market settlements of cash or securities as well as settlements under tri-party or third-party segregation models. Settlement Manager integrates with the world’s leading custodians and tri-party agents through LSEG’s SWIFT gateway in order to bring a modern fintech settlement solution to the market at a market infrastructure grade of operational resilience.

Will Thomey, Co-Head of Business Development said, “It is a tremendous honor to be selected by the American Financial Technology Awards. As the industry moves towards further automation, we saw it as our responsibility to work with our clients and develop an innovative solution which fundamentally improves the settlement lifecycle while leveraging trusted market infrastructure”.

The American Financial Technology Awards are presented by Waters Technology to recognize the technologies and companies having an outsized impact on the changing landscape of trading, data management, risk management and other areas of rapid innovation within financial markets.
