May 17, 2018

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 17, 2018--FlexTrade Systems ( @FlexTrade ), a global leader in multi-asset execution and order management systems, today announced its  FlexTRADER EMS  has won the “Best Front-Office Execution System” category at the 16th Annual   Trading & Technology Awards Europe  ceremony, which was held at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, on Tuesday, 15 May.

Winners of the  Financial News  Trading & Technology Awards are decided by a large pool of distinguished, independent industry practitioners who cast their votes electronically on a shortlist of five nominees chosen by the editorial board of  Financial News. Judges award a score out of five to each nominee. The results are then vetted by  FN  editors for conflicts of interest. The highest adjusted average score out of five is the winner.

According to the judging panel, FlexTRADER was chosen because it has carved out a significant market share among institutional investors, with 200 buyside clients live on its execution management system. The platform’s TCA functionality, FlexTCA, was also cited for providing full order and execution transparency to traders and compliance teams with MiFID II in mind. Also, factored into the decision were recent platform partnerships and enhancements such as:

FlexTrade’s partnership with machine learning specialist,  Dataminr, to create a global macro news alert feed within FlexTRADER. The integration of  BestX’s independent trade analytics  to improve FlexTRADER’s FX capabilities. The addition of  fixed income trading capabilities  into the platform.

It provides out-of-the-box cross asset trading strategies which can be customized, global access to broker algorithms, as well as the ability to build proprietary algorithms.
