The Multi-Asset Trading Desk Marches On
July 16, 2017
Best Execution’s Frances Faulds looks at what is helping, and what is hindering, the move to multi-asset class trading, and spoke with FlexTrade’s Matt York, Product Owner, Fixed Income, for his insights on the topic.
From the article:
By contrast, Matthew York, product owner, fixed income, at Flextrade, thinks that the inherent inflexibility that creating an OEMS brings weakens both. “Clients should be able to select the best solution for both inward facing OMS and market facing EMS and should be able to decouple and replace either side as need arises,” he says. Flextrade which works with the OMS providers, was one of the first EMSs, and over 75% of its clients are equity shops. The firm has been looking at execution management to trade across the asset classes for the past four or five years.
