Boston, March 18, 2013 – A new report from Aite Group considers the evolving buy-side OMS market and its vendors. Based on a Q4 2012 to Q1 2013 Aite Group survey of OMS vendors, buy-side clients, and brokers, this report examines key trends and opportunities in the buy-side OMS market and compares the capabilities of 11 leading vendors.
While dismal conditions and stagnant growth have marked the institutional investment marketplace in recent years, the buy-side OMS remains an indispensable piece of investment management operations. As a result, OMS vendors seeking to stay competitive in this largely mature technology marketplace have no choice but to expand into new markets and invest in differentiating functionality, despite scarce replacement deals and demanding regulatory requirements. For vendors devoted to OMS, 2013 could represent the calm before the buy-side market storm--the year in which those that have consistently invested in multi-asset-class functionality and globalization take a huge step toward significant growth.
"It is uncertain whether all of the major OMS vendors will have the financial strength and the long-term marketplace commitment to continue to innovate,” says Sang Lee, co-founder and managing partner with Aite Group and author of this report. “But vendors that fail to lay the foundation for growth will need to look for new partners to remain in the game.”
This report profiles and compares the following vendors: Advent, Bloomberg AIM, Charles River Development, Eze Castle Software, Fidessa, INDATA, ITG, Linedata, Paladyne Systems, SimCorp, and SS&C Technologies.
