A. Test Analyst

Infosys Ltd – Dec 2015 to Present

Client: Capital Group of Companies

Project: Equity Trading Platform - This project is based on the day to day activities of the traders working on Equity Trading. The project comprises of all the steps involved in trading starting from Order creation to the trade settlement. This has many modules where different dimensions of FIX was analyzed and tested. Recent modules were: MIFID, Interaccount and Market Dashboard. MIFID: This project was based on the regulatory change made for European trades. The change required all the minute level details (such as commission rates – Execution commission and research commission, broker, trade quantity, etc.) to be reported for trades happening with European Accounts There were various activities performed for the success of this project such as:

Broker Certification – This activity involved setting up the FIX sessions with different brokers across the globe and working on the FIX communication. Validating the new MIFID tags was the key followed by assurance of trade getting settled successfully with the downstream applications.

Integration Testing – It was an important and major step in assuring quality. There was a big coordination effort among many teams to make sure that once the trade has settled all the reports were generated appropriately and were as per expectations.

Requirement analysis and System testing – This was the first and important step for the success of the project. Analysis was done how the system would react to the new tags, repeating groups and flat versions. Successful validations of the new requirements using VERFIX was great thing which helped to build up the trust on new changes implemented.

Team Lead – Played the role of Test Lead and assisted with coordination of the tasks with a Team which was geographically distributed. Worked on drafting weekly and monthly status reports and sharing those with the managers.

Interaccount: Many a times it is observed that one manager wants to buy a particular security and another manager wants to sell the same security, but since the portfolios are different so this scenario is very common. So in order to get this resolved the Global Investment group of the company had to sit down and manually settle these trades. This meant a lot of money; so in order to prevent this the process was automated. This lead to saving of millions of dollars in form of broker commissions manual effort. An Interaccount Cross Engine was developed which would internally cross the two opposing orders which satisfies the numerous validation factors. Bullet points of this project were:

Validation of the Allocation algorithm in order to make sure that all the shares were allocation properly across the participating accounts (authorizations).

Since this was an internal crossing network so the attention was paid in testing the Firm up happening over Trading limits and crosses taking place on the boundary values.

Validating the Trade data with OneTick using OTQ’s and working of engine as per different Exchange hours.

Integration Testing with upstream and downstream was a major test in project as well. Market Dashboard: In day to day trading traders had to fetch real time data for price, volume, bid and ask, limits, execution average, etc. from multiple screens. In order to meet this challenge this project came into picture where all this data was available on one screen in form of graphs and numbers. The data was fetched from Reuters using OneTick. There were multiple validation points including heavy calculations and One Tick Queries.

Onshore/Offshore coordination was the key in this project and that role was played well and was appreciated by the many.
