TradingScreen, the leading independent provider of liquidity, trading and investment technology via SaaS, today announced that MST Capital has selected its award-winning TradeSmart execution management system (EMS) to trade foreign exchange, equities and derivatives.
In addition, MST Capital will also use TradingScreen's real-time, multi-asset class transaction cost analysis (TCA) offering.
Hedge funds have been looking to embrace multi-asset class electronic trading to adapt to a changing regulatory and business environment that emphasizes best-execution, transparency, increased efficiency and risk controls.
"We welcome MST Capital as a new TradingScreen customer in Australia. Now, more than ever, it is critical for the buy side to leverage a global multi-asset trading system to generate alpha to spot and execute on market opportunities, closely manage risk, and have an efficient workflow meeting the high standards of asset management today. TradingScreen's transaction cost analysis offering also allows clients such as MST Capital to fully analyse, with an independent view, their trading across multiple asset classes, not just equities," said Philippe Buhannic, CEO, TradingScreen.
"TradingScreen has been working alongside MST Capital since early 2012. MST Capital's requirements in terms of the asset classes they needed to trade and their strong emphasis on risk management were aligned with TradingScreen's core strengths," said Nathan Walker, Head of Sales, South East Asia and Australia, TradingScreen.
