Boston, September 21, 2016 – Since 2008, the whole capital markets industry has gone through a dramatic retrenchment and headcount reduction, and buy-side firms—increasingly asked to foot the bill for their execution management systems—are taking a hard look at cost. This means limiting IT and operational support for multiple systems, and to a great extent, cutting back on single-asset, best-of-breed trading platforms and substituting them with multi-asset and multi-instrument OMS and EMS platforms.
This report focuses on the latest front-office workflow by specifically looking at EMSs with risk analytics and e-trading platform functionalities in listed futures and options from multi-asset EMS vendors that cater to buy-side customers. Based on a series of vendor briefings, face-to-face meetings, live product demos, and WebEx demos between January and May 2016, it profiles EMS vendors Bloomberg, Charles River, Eze Software Group, Fidessa Group, FlexTrade Systems, ITG Inc., Linedata Services, Portware, Redi Global Technologies, Tethys Technology, and TradingScreen.
