New-York, US - July 2nd 2020. smartTrade Technologies, a pioneer in multi-asset electronic trading solutions, announces today that its EMS was awarded Best Buy-Side Execution Management System (EMS) during Virtual TradingTech Insight North America Awards.
smartTrade’s sophisticated EMS allows buy-side firms to get a global view of current liquidity and to operate through different trading protocols and execution mechanisms in order to optimize execution choices. smartTrade’s solution is multi-asset and capable of managing multiple workflows, including aggregating market data, staging, preparing orders, negotiating tenders, click-to-trade, off-exchange trade reporting, etc. It easily integrates with other third-party applications and comes as an out-of-the-box solution but with the added flexibility of allowing clients to inject their own business intelligence and algos, such as aggregation rules, routing rules and trading rules. In addition, our platform allows internalization of clients orders, which allows buy-sides firms to fill orders without needing to go to the market, thereby obtaining the lowest level of information leakage possible. Furthermore, smartTrade charges a flat technology fee meaning all costs are fixed and known at the outset and there is no charge for Liquidity Providers so there are no conflicts of interest in terms of generating fees from the underlying market.
David Vincent, CEO of smartTrade Technologies commented: "For the second consecutive year, we have been recognized as the best EMS provider to meet the various trading technology challenges for asset managers, hedge funds and other buy-side financial institutions in the US marketplace. This has also been confirmed by the growing adoption of our EMS solution among buy-sides in the USA, Europe and in Asia.”
Andrew Delaney, Chief Content Officer at A-Team Group, says: “Congratulations to smartTrade Technologies on winning again the prestigious award for Best Buy-Side EMS at the virtual TradingTech Insight North America Awards. This award illustrates smartTrade’s growing presence on the buy-side market in the USA.”
