FlexTrade integrates Symphony’s compliant messaging solution into the trading blotter

Provider of multi-asset execution and order management solutions FlexTrade Systems today announces the integration of Symphony Communication Services LLC’s platform with FlexTRADER EMS.

As a result, secure and compliant messaging is brought directly into the trading blotter for any FlexTrade clients using Symphony.

FlexTrade’s integration with Symphony enables traders to communicate and distribute content to both portfolio managers and brokers directly from their trading blotter. Communications can be initiated by the trader, or automatically based on a specific market event or situation.

Over the next few months, FlexTrade’s integration with Symphony will be further expanded to include:

  • Search for information and research on a given instrument directly from the FlexTrade blotter;
  • Fixed income liquidity discovery, inventory distribution and price negotiation;
  • Capture chat in FlexTrade’s Transaction Cost Analysis tool (FlexTCA), to ensure all elements of the trading workflow are recorded for regulatory compliance.

Andy Mahoney, Director of Business Development for FlexTrade UK Ltd in London, says,

“The future of electronic trading will be built on seamless and secure communications. Integrating FlexTRADER with Symphony ensures our clients can easily receive and distribute content directly from the trading blotter. The potential applications for this integration ensure our client’s trading capabilities are kept well ahead of the curve now, and in the future.”

Barry Castle, CMO of Symphony, says,

“We are delighted FlexTrade has chosen to integrate Symphony’s workflow productivity application within the FlexTRADER EMS. Symphony’s ability to provide a secure and compliant communications platform means partners like FlexTrade can deliver complete solutions that unite all participants in time-sensitive trading workflows in a single system. The result for financial services: Improved user experience, better economies of scale and faster response to customers.”
