Royalblue has announced that asset management firm Thames River Capital LLP has successfully gone live with the Fidessa Workstation Execution Management Service for derivatives trading.
Thames River has been using Fidessa Execution Management Service (EMS) since June 2006 to execute cash equities with a number of receiving brokers on Fidessa’s global connectivity network. Through the Fidessa EMS, Thames River can now route index futures and options order flow from its London office to its preferred futures and options brokers.
Available as a fully hosted ASP solution, Fidessa EMS provides a global, broker-neutral order management and execution solution targeted at buy-side trading desks. With fully integrated real-time market prices, news and fundamental data, traders can smart-route orders to a variety of DMA, algorithmic and care order services globally.
Fidessa EMS uses Fidessa’s own global connectivity network to provide links to executing brokers. The Fidessa network provides a fully normalized, robust, broker-neutral, FIX-based solution for clients wishing to route order for both equity and derivatives flow to a variety of sell-side destinations.
Other typical uses of the network include direct buy-side to sell-side connectivity and broker-to-broker connectivity to support non-member trading across numerous markets.
Access to the Fidessa order routing neetwork is available via the Fidessa trading platform, Fidessa EMS or via direct FIX connection.
