  • Patent number: 12026777
    Abstract: Systems and methods for transforming an electronic portfolio. A system includes an electronic crossing platform that receives data defining trade orders of the electronic portfolio during an initial time period; compares portions of the data to determine an imbalance of the trade orders remaining after the initial time period and receives, during a final time period, a final trade order from a fund agent device to offset the remaining imbalance. The platform receives, after the final time period, a benchmark value of the electronic portfolio from a fund device; compares the final trade order with the remaining imbalance to determine an adjustment value; converts the benchmark value to a final value by applying the adjustment value to the benchmark value; and transforms the electronic portfolio into the transformed portfolio by creating paired buy and sell orders among the trade orders received during the initial time period at the final value.

  • Patent number: 11978320
    Abstract: Systems and computer-implemented methods for a bet exchange. The bet exchange receives bet orders from users and matches bet-for orders with bet-against orders to generate instances of standardized bet contracts. The bet-for orders are bets on a bet event occurring, and bet-against orders are bets on a bet event not occurring. The bet events have a standardized payout amount, which is used to determine a value to transfer to the trader that made the bet-for order when the bet event occurs, or to the trader that made the bet-against order when the bet event does not occur.

  • Patent number: 11978119
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments relate to regulation of a rate of incoming orders by buffering or otherwise batching orders together as they are received and subsequently forwarding batches of orders to a match engine for processing thereby in a manner which may equalize orders from traders having varying abilities to rapid submit orders or otherwise capitalize on market events. The disclosed embodiments further relate to prioritizing the matching of resting orders against an incoming order. In particular, the disclosed embodiments alter the priority of a given resting order to match against an incoming order, relative to other suitably matching resting orders, as a function of how long the orders have been resting on the order book.

  • Patent number: 11978313
    Abstract: A system is provided for securely issuing a ticket for a draw of a game via smart contracts of a blockchain. The system records in the blockchain a game smart contract. The game smart contract records a draw smart contract for issuing tickets for a draw of the game. The game smart contract receives a game place order message indicating placement of an order for a ticket for the draw of the game. The game smart contract sends to the draw smart contract a draw place order message indicating the placement of the order for the ticket for the draw of the game. The game smart contact receives from the draw smart contract a confirmation that the ticket for the draw of the game has been issued. The game smart contract coordinates generation of winning drawlines and directs the draw smart contract to identify winning tickets.

  • Patent number: 11972485
    Abstract: The invention provides a computer implemented method for automatically compiling a portfolio of assets. The method comprises steps including generating a plurality of first generation portfolios of assets from a plurality of available assets, wherein each of said plurality of first generation portfolios is generated by random selection of one or more of said plurality of available assets. The method involves applying a random percentage weighting to each of said randomly selected assets, but where the sum of the random percentage weightings is arranged to equal 100%. It also involves calculating a score for each of the plurality of first generation portfolios of assets, the score for each of said plurality of first generation portfolios of assets comprising an aggregate of a plurality of different evaluation factors and ranking the plurality of first generation portfolios of assets by their respective scores.

  • Patent number: 11972482
    Abstract: The disclosure provides an intra-day/hourly balancing of a fund index. The disclosure includes retrieving the value of an underlying index at a first balancing point at a point in time that is close, in time, to the balancing point and determining the value of the underlying index at a second balancing point. If the value of the underlying index increased, then the method increases an exposure to the underlying index. If the value of the underlying index decreased, then the method decreases the exposure. The method may then compare the current trading volatility of the underlying index to a historic trading volatility. If the current volatility is greater than the historic volatility, then the method decreases the leverage of the intra-day index with respect to the underlying index. If the current volatility is less than the historic volatility, then the method increases the leverage.

  • Patent number: 11972436
    Abstract: A system comprises at least one computer device in communication with one or more server computers. The system converts unstructured text into usable order details, and uses instant messaging to notify recipients of the order details. The notices include electronic web links that launch a web interface that generates an editable, pre-populated electronic order ticket based on the order details. Submission of the electronic order ticket launches an auction during which the recipients may respond with offers to fulfill to the electronic order ticket. If after the auction more than one response is needed to fill the electronic order ticket, the system automatically allocates how and in which order the responses will be used to fill the electronic order ticket. If the electronic order ticket is not completely filled after the auction, the electronic order ticket is submitted to one or more additional exchanges for further filling.
