Buy-side boost as TradingScreen and Imagine Software enhance partnership
Singapore, 12 July 2020: TradingScreen Inc (TS), the all asset class execution and order management system (EOMS), and Imagine Software, leading provider of portfolio and risk management solutions, have enhanced their long-standing partnership to deliver a full front-to-back office trading solution to the buy-side.
The extended partnership offers hedge funds and asset managers the dual benefits of TradingScreen’s trade EOMS, coupled with Imagine’s real-time, cross-asset position management, risk analytics, and regulatory compliance platform.
By standardising implementation and simplifying deployment of the combined technology, a wider range of investment managers can benefit from the partnership. The breadth of the asset class coverage and the integration of two best-of-breed solutions covering the full trade lifecycle supports any asset manager, global macro and alternative fund managers looking to upgrade their software. While the start-up hedge fund community can now access a packaged solution at a lower cost of entry that is fully integrated, scalable, and helps gain investor confidence.
Reacting to the strengthened agreement, Jim Li, CIO of Asia Lion Capital said, “Increasingly complex regulatory requirements creates the need for seamless integration from the front-end trading desk, right the way through to middle and back office risk management operations. Thanks to TradingScreen and Imagine, we can now benefit from fully integrated trading, risk and compliance functionality.”
Bernie Ho, Head of Asia Pacific Sales and Operations at TradingScreen added, “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.”
Philippe Lacour, Global Head of Sales at Imagine Software concluded, “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. 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.”
