Transformational Order Routing and Execution Service Assessment

Modernization of Order Routing and Execution Services

With the liquidity shift to the Buy-Side, increased volumes, volatility, and ever more complex client orders, Buy-Side firms need to modernize their order routing and execution services, and upgrade to a high-performance, best in class cloud-based order routing, data, and execution platform.

Competitive DIS-Advantage-Due to Older Order Routing and Execution Services System

Many Buy-Side firms have been using the same Order Routing and Execution Services for 10-15yrs plus. These hardware and software platforms need to be refreshed as the workflow running through it is unable to keep up with trade types, order volumes, confirms and allocations. Trades today are being filled in milliseconds and microseconds, while investment management firms have systems that are still processing trades on a per second or even a per minute basis. In addition, market data and referential services also need better roundtrip performance and compute capability.
