FlexTrade teams up with RSRCHXchange to provide institutional research

Do not invest more money than you can afford to lose.

 

FlexTrade Systems, a provider of multi-asset execution management systems (EMS) announced it has teamed up with RSRCHXchange – an online marketplace for institutional research. Under the new partnership the buy-side traders on the FlexTrade’s EMS will receive access to relevant market research straight in their trading blotter.

The RSRCHX platform was launched in September 2015 with the goal to improve and facilitate the distribution and procurement of financial market research materials in compliance with the MiFID II unbundling requirements. It enables asset managers to buy and access research from existing providers in a simple way, while the providers can track track firm-wide research consumption and improve the procurement process.

With the new partnership between FlexTrader and RSRCHXchange, the publication of new research on an instrument can be used as an indicator in FlexTrade’s low-touch order automation. A new piece of research might mean an order which was previously categorized as “low touch”, with no human interaction, might now require manual intervention. Traders would be able to flag research portfolio managers and then s/he can decide whether they want to purchase the research and potentially adjust their investment decision.

“FlexTRADER’s integration with RSRCHX allows traders to actively monitor research from a variety of providers directly from their trading blotter. We have integrated with bank research portals in the past, but RSRCHXchange provides the perfect platform to access research from many different providers, in an unbundled, MiFID II compliant manner,” said Andy Mahoney, director of business development for FlexTrade UK.

“We are delighted to be working with FlexTrade to offer its buy-side clients access to a wide array of research from leading providers,” said Vicky Sanders, Co-Founder of RSRCHXchange.

FlexTrade Systems Inc., is a provider of broker-neutral, execution and order management trading platforms for equities, foreign exchange, options, futures and fixed income. Its flagship product is FlexTRADER – a platform for algorithmic trading. The company has offices in North America, Europe and Asia, FlexTrade and a client base of more more than 175 buy- and sell-side firms.

Recently FTSEF, a swap execution facility of FlexTrade, obtained registration with the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) as a Swap Execution Facilities (SEFs).

RSRCHXchange is an online research marketplace designed to improve the way in which the institutional asset management industry can buy research. It was built in consultation with the asset management industry and research providers. The platform allows asset managers to search within the aggregated content from multiple sources and buy the research they need in real time.
