Beauchamp Financial Technology (BFT) today announced the completion of its interface between FundManager, BFTss flagship portfolio management software system, and Omgeo Central Trade ManagerSM (Omgeo CTM).
Omgeo CTM is Omgeo’s STP solution for automating back-office trade processing, offering immediate access to Omgeo’s global community of 6,000 brokers for central trade matching and settlement notification. Omgeo provides several flexible interface options that enable portfolio management systems to connect to Omgeo CTM, including the Message Translation Interface (MTI) employed by BFT’s solution. Through this connection, client files are mapped to and from Omgeo CTM XML, and trade details are processed in “batch” mode. Clients can use BFT FundManager to leverage existing file formats, including Omgeo AutoMatch files, to send and receive data to and from Omgeo CTM, minimizing the cost, effort and resources required to implement Omgeo CTM functionality.
Kathy Ball-Toncic, Executive Director, Omgeo Global STP Partners Program, commented; “We are pleased to be able to offer our clients increased value through our STP Partnership with Beauchamp. By offering a certified interface between Omgeo CTM and BFT FundManager, clients are able to increase their straight through processes and maximize efficiencies without having to spend time and money building their own links.”
Clare Flynn, Beauchamp's President, said, "We look forward to providing Beauchamp’s clients with additional means to achieve superior operational efficiency and accuracy in trade reporting. The user will be able to feed substantial volumes of trades into Omgeo CTM, match them with broker execution and trade details, manage exceptions and automatically update the status of trades in the FundManager portfolio management system prior to reporting them to their prime brokers and administrators. Automated trade matching and reconciliation is bringing the hedge fund industry that much closer to full straight through processing, maximizing operational efficiency and maximizing investment returns."
