Thomson Reuters has enhanced the range of equity trading facilities in its buy-side front-office solution, Eikon.
The desktop service has now integrated FlexTrade’s execution management system (EMS) and Autex data on indications of interest (IOI).
Thomson Reuters said the addition of this data will provide its institutional investor customers with “seamless access to broker-neutral EMS capabilities as well as tools to better monitor broker activity and liquidity”.
FlexTrade’s EMS can be used to execute trades and send orders to multiple brokers and venues including dark pools, alternative trading systems and multilateral trading facilities. It also offers an aggregate view of liquidity, tools to monitor market events and can receive news, price and volume alters to keep traders informed.
Autex IOI data allows the buy-side to monitor broker activity and liquidity and gives access to algorithmic trading strategies.
Rob Hegarty, global head of equities at Thomson Reuters, said: “Thomson Reuters has a track-record of working with leading EMS and order management system providers to offer our buy-side customers a choice when trading over our Autex FIX order routing network.
“With the integration of FlexTrade’s EMS in Eikon, we have taken this a step further by offering a comprehensive experience for traders who need access to rich, relevant news, in-depth information, sophisticated analytics and a broker-neutral EMS.”
Linedata has also made a major upgrade to its Linedata Longview front-office solution for asset managers with enhanced multi-asset functionality and improved alerts and data.
Longview users will be able to use multi-asset exposure-based portfolio management capabilities with support for asset allocation management to simplify decision making for portfolio managers.
Additionally, alerts functionality has been expanded to cover arrivals, VWAP and close information and data enhancements include a single view of multi-day execution history.
