Welcome to AcadiaSoft

Welcome! AcadiaSoft was founded in 2009 with a great idea to help automate the collateral management arena using the latest technology. Back then we were a small fintech start up with a handful of dedicated staff located just outside of Boston MA.

Today, AcadiaSoft, Inc. is the leading industry provider of risk management services for the derivatives community. Our industry-wide repository of margin and collateral data helps firms to mitigate financial risk and optimize resources across the entire trade life cycle. In response to the regulatory framework of Uncleared Margin Rules, we partnered with the industry to develop a suite of Risk services to assist our clients in communicating and reconciling their initial margin which today is seen as the global standard.

In 2021, AcadiaSoft acquired Quaternion Risk Management. This has expanded our service offerings to include an Expert Services division in which we can now provide clients with a highly experienced quantitative analysis consultancy practice.

AcadiaSoft’s suite of analytics solutions and services helps firms measure the quantitative aspects of risk management. Through an open-access model, AcadiaSoft brings together the top derivatives banks and asset managers, along with several market infrastructures and innovative vendors. Backed by 16 major industry participants and market infrastructures, AcadiaSoft is used by a community of over 1600 firms exchanging more than $1 trillion of collateral on daily basis via its margin automation services.
