  • FrontRisk supports integrated, low-latency pre-trade and at-trade risk management with easy integration to external systems.
  • FrontRunner API (FRAPI) is a lightweight, multithreaded, asynchronous functional/callback style interface designed for integrating custom client solutions with the FrontRunner trading infrastructure suite.
