Trading technology firm Portware has signed up Helsinki-based Pohjola Asset Management as a client for its trade management platform.
The Finnish fund manager – which has assets under management totaling €33.1 billion – cited functionality, flexibility, and ease of integration with its existing order management system (OMS) among the reasons for choosing the Portware platform.
Pohjola head of trading Simo Puhakka also praised the speed and efficiency of the implementation process. He said the consultative approach to platform deployment taken by the firm had resulted in lower implementation costs and a reduced time to market.
Portware said the new business was evidence of its expansion within the fund management community – the result of firms looking to rationalise internal workflows and drive efficiencies across the trade lifecycle.
