Fully customisable termsheets

MAI termsheets are fully customisable and have many configurable options to enable you to leverage your own corporate branding. You can upload your own logo, attach your own contact details and define your own company font and disclaimer; however we recommend that you use our default Risk Disclosures. Your customised termsheet will be generated automatically and emailed as a PDF document to a pre-defined list of recipients. Your customised termsheet can then be sent on directly to your own investors.

Strike to Yield and Yield to Strike Grid

The Multi Asset Investment has a customisable yield to strike and strike to yield grid giving the user a quick view of customizable 5 strikes / yields in a tabular form which can be downloaded in excel as an indication or can be back filled the MAI screen for execution.

Admin control of MAI dealing configuration for all internal users

The Multi Asset Investment Configuration screen enables select users to configure MAI dealing parameters for all internal users, allowing you to restrict the options available to your sales team. The following parameters are available:

  • Profit Currency - Restricts what can be selected for the profit currency. This can be either a specific currency or the underlying investment currency
  • Interest at risk - Defines whether or not the interest on the underlying deposit is at risk in addition to the deposit
  • Maximum Profit - An optional field which restricts the profit a sales user can add per trade

In addition, you are able to define which currencies will be 'Unfunded' or 'Funded'. Your portfolio of MAIs can then be managed through the enhanced FX Options blotter.
