4sight has launched an equity derivatives software solution for synthetic prime brokerage in response to Basel III capital requirements and balance sheet pressures.

4sight Synthetic Finance supports the full synthetic finance lifecycle, offering a front-to-back office solution for swap transactions over a range of underlying assets.

"We expect significant growth in the equity derivatives and synthetic finance space in response to the regulatory pressures facing prime brokers and their clients," said Alastair Chisholm, 4sight’s managing director.

The system provides workflow and control for position management, trade entry, corporate actions, settlement and reporting.

As a real-time management and calculation system, 4sight said the product is ready to meet the demands of regulatory reporting requirements for Dodd-Frank and the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (Emir).

"This latest addition to our product range enables 4sight’s clients to take advantage of [the synthetic] trend and establish new revenue streams as synthetic trading gathers pace."
