Commercial Consultancy

Trading & Risk Management

Trading businesses require robust information and risk management systems. Smart Global can advise on and implement the right solutions for your business. Our team has a deep understanding of industry architecture and the numerous ETRM platforms, including: Allegro, Openlink, Triple Point and Bulldog. Our emphasis is on the business requirements rather than changing system functionality - Smart Global focus on getting the system to work.
We work closely with each client to develop the optimal deal management structure within the ETRM so that all related trades can be grouped together and understood. Thus data can be interrogated and reported on across time, geography, grade and instrument type.

Designing and interpreting commercially valuable reports is not something that is easy to do. However this type of reporting is one of Smart Global's specialities.


Smart Global can help organisations manage implementations and lead them to a successful conclusion, while at the same time taking the pressure off time-constrained trading and risk teams.


Smart Global can intercede at any time to deal with these problems that stem from a misconfigured or misused ETRM system.


Smart Global can discreetly assess and understand complex positions quickly, and make specific recommendations for exiting or improving positions.
