Trading systems provider TradingScreen has expanded its partnership with Imagine Software and combined their services to launch a front-to-back buy-side trading solution.
The collaboration will see TradingScreen combine its multi-asset execution and order management system (EOMS) with Imagine Software’s cross-asset position management, risk analytics, and regulatory compliance platform.
“With an immediate need to reduce their technology spend, we are finding different types of hedge funds and asset managers seeking a trading solution that is easy to deploy and use,” said head of Asia pacific sales and operations at TradingScreen, Bernie Ho.
The combined solution will cover the full trade lifecycle with standardised and simplified deployment to allow a wider range of investment managers, including hedge funds, asset managers, global macro and alternative fund managers, to upgrade their software,
“Increasingly complex regulatory requirements create the need for seamless integration from the front-end trading desk, right the way through to middle and back-office risk management operations,” Jim Li, chief investment officer at Asia Lion Capital, added. “Thanks to TradingScreen and Imagine, we can now benefit from fully integrated trading, risk, and compliance functionality.”
TradingScreen added that the integrated solution will also offer start-up hedge funds access to a packaged solution at a lower cost of entry which is fully integrated and scalable.
“Through this offering, we have been able to provide a simplified, robust and tested solution that is already used by many financial organisations in Asia and around the world,” added Philippe Lacour, global head of sales at Imagine Software. “In particular, the combined offering ensures that the buy-side can significantly improve the validation process so they can guarantee their investors’ money when it comes to operational risk.”
