Horizon Software, a global leading vendor in Market Making, Agency Trading and Algo Trading Technology, announces today that its trading platform is now supporting AMC (Actively Managed Certificates). Horizon is enhancing its capabilities to enable clients to manage the whole AMC trading lifecycle, including:
- AMC Product Definition, including ability to handle live updates
- Cross-asset instruments – equities & derivatives, FX, FI, Commos & Cryptos
- AMC Pricing, leveraging our Basket Pricer
- AMC Quoting, based on our market making automaton

This AMC platform is designed with a combination of our proven software components currently supporting execution desks and brokers and our historical core business product for Principal Trading and Market Making.
On top of the off-the-shelf abilities of the platform, our clients can leverage our algo Framework to further extend its capabilities, whether this is to customize the AMC pricing logic, fine-tune the automated execution engine or implement Straight Through Processing rules to streamline the execution process. This new capability is a tailor-made solution for financial services companies who wish to provide advanced AMC lifecycle management, and can be seamlessly plugged into platforms of our existing customers.
