American National Trading Corporation has gone live with Rolfe & Nolan's RANorder automated order entry and management system across its operations.
The new system, delivered under an ASP (application service provider) business model, supports retail and professional trade entry, pre-trade order risk control, and transaction routing to open outcry and electronic markets.
The RANorder trading front-ends are made available as a white label product to accommodate a client's specific product branding requirements.
Don Varden, chief executive officer of American National, says: "We were attracted to the fact that Rolfe & Nolan products like RANorder are platform-independent...Also, we found RANorder to be the best system for overall commodity trading. We process a variety of commodities from soybeans to S&P futures and RANorder's versatile functionality made it the best choice."
In a separate announcement, Rolfe & Nolan has named three new hires to its sales and marketing team in London.
Doug Weaver has been appointed strategic business development manager for key accounts. In this newly created position, he will provide strategic support to key customers based in the UK and Europe.
Mark Johnson has joined Rolfe & Nolan's European sales team and will be responsible for developing new and existing business opportunities in Europe. Johnson previously worked for middleware firm Financial Fusion.
Gary Delany has been appointed marketing manager where he will look after the day-to-day marketing operations of the business. Delany joined Rolfe & Nolan in October last year and will oversee the internal and external marketing communications for the group.
All three will report to Jim McCarthy, European sales and marketing director at Rolfe & Nolan.
