Dalton Street Capital in Sydney has upgraded its futures, equities and FX trading through implementing FlexTrade’s EMS system.

FlexTrade’s multi-asset EMS - FlexTRADER EMS - has been combined with its automation services and API interface to allow the investment management firm to hedge its FX exposure and manage cross-asset risk.

Dan Enstedt, vice president of business development for FlexTrade’s Sydney-based operations, explained it’s vital firms handle their global multi-asset flow through one execution platform.

“With FlexTRADER’s seamless API integration capabilities, Dalton Street Capital can streamline their quantitative investment approach, providing the ability to trade quickly and efficiently across global markets ensuring best execution,” he said.

Alan Sheen, co-founder and director at Dalton Street Capital, added: “one of our primary concerns was finding a firm that would be there for us as our trading requirements increase… FlexTrade fit the bill.”
