A leading agri-business company, as part of a proprietary trading system, was looking for a solution for capturing physical purchase and sales contracts with various counterparties, as well as capturing derivative hedges for managing price risk. 


The leading agri-business company (the Customer) choose EPAM to provide a solution with the following requirements:

  • To supply a generic drop copy HUB to reliably work with multiple venues
  • To be flexible to accommodate specific FIX dialects
  • To provide integration with a third party application, which monitors trade activities
  • To provide trading data to be monitored under Market Abuse Regulation

  • System operates 24x7 without a reboot of FIXEdge
  • Support of multiple FIX versions (FIX 4.2, FIX 4.4, and custom FIX dialects)
