SPOC is an online pricing tool that provides qualified users with open access to IFM's structured products pricing portfolio, showcasing thousands of prices across asset classes in order to bring transparency to the marketplace. With the new custom pricing feature, qualified users can now seamlessly view the Company's real-time structured product quotes at levels other than the current board price. IFM has developed this functionality based directly on client feedback, and it better facilitates the strategies of those customers who want to hedge a given structured product at a specific price.

IFM has optimized SPOC for mobile use, enabling customers to access all functionality in an easy-to-view manner from any device.
