Global asset management firm Pine River Capital Management has deployed FlexTRADER EMS to handle trading for equities, FX, equity options as well as dispersion trading, and futures trading.
Pine River Capital Management Hong Kong office head Scott Reinhart said modernization of the trading business is the need of changing time, as strategies considered successful five years ago basically might no longer be attractive.
"FlexTrade’s solutions have helped us to expand our existing strategies and quickly launch new ones across multiple asset classes and geographic regions," Reinhart added.
The company said that consolidation of equities, FX, listed options, futures, or any combination is essential on the same platform in order to ensure smooth functioning.
Designed to offer advanced cross asset trading strategies, the multi-asset execution management system can be tailored for global access to broker algorithms, as well as the ability to build proprietary algorithms.
It also offers purely developed pre-trade, real-time and post-trade analytics (FlexTQM), predictive analytics (FlexEdge); risk and cost optimized portfolio trade scheduling (FlexPTS); advanced integrations with major OMS; integrated real-time allocations and cash management, among others.
Set up in 2002 and headquartered in Minnesota, Pine River manages offices in New York, London, San Francisco, Beijing, Shenzhen and Hong Kong as well as nearly $12.3bn.
