Scivantage Adds OptionsPlay® Ideas to Investment Platform

Intuitive equities and options analysis and trading tool designed to demystify complex trading and discover new market opportunities now available within the Scivantage Investment™ platform

JERSEY CITY, NJ — September 24, 2014Scivantage®, a Global FinTech 100 technology provider of information-enabled software dedicated to transforming complex information and processes into intuitive user experiences for the financial services industry, announced today the availability of OptionsPlay® Ideas through Scivantage’s Investment Platform. The equities and options investing tool transforms investors’ market data research process and provides data-driven tailored results for more intelligent trading decisions to ultimately maximize returns. OptionsPlay Ideas is available as a standalone solution, able to be integrated with an existing brokerage investment platform or via the Scivantage Investor™ and Scivantage Professional™ platforms.

Powered by innovative analytics, intuitive visuals and natural language processing, OptionsPlay Ideas is built to simplify investment decision making. As the self-directed channel continues to grow, banks and brokerages need more tools which empower active investors in order to both gather and retain assets in a highly competitive market. The intelligent platform provides investors with a unique visualization of unbiased technical and fundamental equity analysis, enabling investors to research and identify equities and options trading opportunities, as well as execute on previously complex investment strategies.

“OptionsPlay Ideas demystifies complex trading and is a uniquely valuable pathfinder to affordable investment opportunities within both the U.S. equities and options markets,” said Cameron Routh, Executive Vice President, Corporate Development at Scivantage. “The highly visual analysis appeals to the self-directed investors and retail traders, making the solution a key differentiator for institutions otherwise restricted from making trade suggestions on their own. An intuitive layout makes it easily accessible to all investors, even to those with limited options trading experience. Banks and brokerages can utilize the turnkey offering within Scivantage Investor and Scivantage Professional, as well as seamlessly integrate Ideas into other trading systems, resulting in a transaction driver that will grow their business, increase order flow, fuel client acquisition and raise client retention.”

“While options trading is complex, investors engaging in these strategies tend to trade more frequently and are more profitable customers for brokerages,” said Mark Engelhardt, CEO, OptionsPlay. “We carefully designed OptionsPlay Ideas to transform the way both institutions and investors think about options trading and create an experience that makes the platform available to everyone. We are extremely excited to collaborate with Scivantage, making OptionsPlay Ideas available to its ever-growing list of financial services clients, creating a much more interesting, interactive and ultimately profitable investing platform for their customers.”
