InvestAZ is launching a brand new Risk Management tool after last Thursday’s event. Since the ‘Black Swan’ day is reshaping the FX industry, the firm said that brokerage houses that have powerful risk management systems are starting to lead for changes in the industry.
InvestAZ made the announcement about its book and the internal risk management tool, called InvestMan, claiming that it allowed the company to make money in all market conditions, even including the extraordinary conditions of Thursday. The firm states: “InvestMan worked flawlessly during the Black Swan day allowing the brokerage house to make profit.”

According to the information from the brokerage house, InvestMan is a proprietary custom built risk management tool that can assess the risk per client and per position instead of whole exposure. The system can also evaluate the whole exposure not only based on B Book PnL Risk, but also based on A Book GAP Risk. This protects the company’s risk management from sudden GAPs as well, which was one of the main problems for other FX brokerage houses during the last CHF price movement.
InvestAZ Chairman of Board of Directors, Elshan Guliyev, said that they would share this tool with other market participants “in order to make the market more confident.” He also mentioned that “although there was a huge competition, InvestAZ undertakes the responsibility to improve FX&CFD industry.”
After establishing FX&CFD markets in Azerbaijan, InvestAZ started to work with related parties in Turkey to change the shape of the industry. This also started to be quite visible on trading volume in Turkey, which they say came close to 30 billion Turkish lira in December 2014. Elshan Guliyev said that these actions supported their global operations and let them prepare technological tools, risk management systems and liquidity to other brokerage houses.
