Massachusetts-based order management systems vendor Charles River Development has certified FIX connectivity with Deutsche Bank in Europe, Asia Pacific and Japan.
The FIX certification allows investment managers using the Charles River Trading System (CRTS) to route real-time electronic securities trades directly through to Deutsche Bank for execution.
CRTS is fully FIX-enabled and utilises a range of FIX message types including List messages, Indications Of Interest (IOIs) and Qualified/Foreign Investor IDs. The trading system currently offers FIX certification at no charge to investment managers and brokers.
Charles River recently announced FIX certification with Salomon Smith Barney in Hong Kong and to Iress for connectivity to the major Australian securities exchanges.
