Features and benefits

FX prime brokerage

Control the credit amount allocated to clients from one credit-checking tool. Prime brokerage limit management can be centralized and viewed in one interface.   

OTC clearing

Pre-trade limit checking enables participants trading OTC derivatives and their clearing brokers to comply with pre-trade credit requirement before entering into trades. Pre-clearing limit checking enables clearing brokers to credit check and approve their clients’ OTC equity trade flow for clearing.

Kill switches and rebalancer

Kill switches allow credit providers to disable clients from trading on execution venues in real time. Our Kill switch reconciliation tool is an ‘add-on’ to the kill switch service which allows customers to reconcile and raise breaks in kill codes between CreditLink and ECNs. The rebalancer tool enables credit providers to reduce the over-allocation of credit by dynamically rebalancing available credit across trading venues.


Market participants are given fully visibility over credit use, making trade credit risk more transparent.

More transparency for credit risk

We have flexible solutions for meeting regulatory requirements for transparency and limit monitoring.

Limit monitor

Our credit services enable credit providers to dynamically distribute credit in real time to where the client trades, reducing credit overallocation. Pre-and post-trade alerts notify market participants where credit limits may be breached.

Kill switch

Credit providers can disable client’s trading activity on ECNs at the flick of a switch using our limit service. Switches can be set to apply automatically where clients exceed their allocated credit limits, significantly reducing risk in the FX markets. Additionally, our kill switch reconciliation tool allows credit providers to reconcile kill codes between CreditLink platform and ECNs.


Credit providers can distribute limits dynamically to reduce the overallocation sent to individual venues while maximizing trading. This technology recognizes offsetting trades across venues, to free additional client credit.


Having addressed common documentation industry challenges, our documentation service is comprised of three core components: flexible document creation across multiple legal agreement types, multi-party negotiation for faster time to market delivery, and complete lifecycle management.

How it works


Documentation service (DNM)

DNM streamlines creating, monitoring, amending and terminating legal agreements. Designation notices hold limits governing the relationships and enable tri-party relationships between FXPB, dealers and client.


Harmony LimitHub

LimitHub connects to all regulated venues and CCPs, and performs OTC Clearing pre- and post-trade limit checking, which solves the fragmentation issue as all limit checks are centrally performed.

Recently launched Equity Limithub enables clearing brokers to approve clients’ OTC equity trade flow for clearing. The new limit monitoring service allows more clients that currently settle their trades bilaterally to join Traiana’s CCP network.


Prime and executing brokers manage clients’ credit exposure through overall limits and ‘liquidity limits’ for FX products, including real-time monitoring with position calculation and utilization management.


Kill switches and rebalancer

Kill switches, the kill switch reconciliation tool and rebalancer provide active limit management, allowing prime brokers to stop clients from trading, and dynamically or manually distribute limits across executing venues.
