What is Caspian?

The world of crypto is continuously growing. There are a wealth of new exchanges and cryptocurrencies. Traditional investors, asset managers and traders have to navigate resources and tools individually in order to participate in the crypto-space. This creates a barrier to entry for individuals and institutions who could otherwise partake in this growing economy.

Caspian is a full stack of financial tools that integrates with major exchanges in order to offer users a single place to interact with the entire crypto-space.

Caspian targets the following three functions:

  • Execution
  • Position & Risk Management
  • Compliance & Reporting

WhitePaper, Page 14

Caspian Order and Execution Management System

Caspian gives users access to the entire breadth of financial tools available on each individual exchange. Users can use the Caspian platform to access all the available exchanges and their respective functions through one platform.

As a trader or fund manager, this means that you can have access to the best rates available across all the markets as well as a broad choice of cryptocurrencies.

Caspian Position & Risk Management

One of the most difficult tasks facing an investor operating on multiple exchanges is managing their positions. The Caspian solution is unique in offering a view of all your current and historical trades in one view. Caspian makes it easy to compare positions, divest, reinvest and keep track of profit & loss across multiple accounts.
In terms of managing assets, this ensures that the investor can be constantly aware of their portfolio as well as shift assets and positions across exchanges.
A key component of this process is the reconciliation of positions against each individual exchange. With Caspian this is done for you; via the auto reconciliation tool you can be sure that the positions you see at the exchange and in Caspian match and are correct.

Caspian Compliance

Caspian has built-in compliance features which ensure that users can set various rules and limits into their trading strategies.

Compliance consists of three limit types:

  • Warning Limit
    As the name implies, a warning suggesting a rule is about to be broken.

  • Approval Limit
    This requires a supervisor to enter a password to override the compliance alert.

  • Absolute Limit
    The absolute limit is a limit that cannot be overridden by any means.

These compliance levels allow users to create and adhere to rules that are appropriate for their assessment of risk-reward and ability to withstand variance. All breaches are fully audit trailed and recorded.

Caspian Reporting

One major part of running investor money (or indeed your own money) is to be able to analyze the trading and exposure of your positions. To successfully do that you need to be able to quickly and easily access reports.

The Caspian reporting product allows users, via a dynamic web based tool to
use, create, format and receive graphical reports on your current trading and position activity in multiple formats such as PDF or Excel, providing an easy snapshot the current status of the fund via various indicators.

All reports are also available as a web-based dashboard that you can access at any time and manipulate (pivot tables, filtering, drill-downs, etc.) to gain real-time insights into the workings of the fund.

Caspian has a demo with an overview of some functionalities.

There are also customizable alerts and functions, such as a alerts that are triggered based on user-set preferences.

Caspian Use-Case

Caspian caters to a wide range of users. Unknowingly, many crypto-holders are traders and their own personal fund managers.

Here is an anecdotal example:

Meet Jessie. She has been involved with crypto for over 3 years, and knows her way around the markets. She is a fund manager for a large bank, and their institution has long been looking to get involved in cryptocurrencies. She has pitched her CEO about trading in crypto, but the CEO declined, saying that it would be an administrative and bookkeeping headache.

Fast forward a few years, Jessie stumbles upon Caspian!

The interface combines all the largest exchanges, has the financial tools that traders and fund managers are already familiar with, and even tracks trade data and history for accurate bookkeeping and tax preparation!

Excited, she shows her CEO Caspian.

Two weeks later, her bank rolls out cryptocurrency investments, increasing their clients exposure to a variety of investments, as well as attracting new clients who are interested in fund managers who specialize in cryptocurrencies!
