Charles River, a front- and middle-office investment management solutions provider, today announced that Atlanta Capital, an investment advisory firm that operates as an independent subsidiary of Eaton Vance Corp., has implemented the Charles River Investment Management Solution (IMS) Version 9 to automate portfolio management, trading and compliance across its domestic equity operations.
"Charles River IMS enabled us to replace separate OMS, EMS, FIX network, and real-time data providers with a single solution that increases trading efficiency and allows us to reduce risk and cost," said Atlanta Capital President and COO Kelly Williams. "Additionally, Charles River's multi-asset class coverage will support our growth strategies and expanding investment needs."
Charles River IMS Version 9 merges traditional order management with execution management capabilities such as watch lists, charts, level II real time data (market depth), and smart order routing, giving Atlanta Capital's traders a single trading blotter with more consistent, streamlined workflows. Atlanta Capital joins more than 100 clients who are now live on Version 9.
"Charles River IMS supports the entire trading lifecycle," said Tom Driscoll, Global Managing Director, Charles River. "And it's the only front-office system that combines OMS and EMS capabilities into one platform. We lower total cost of ownership by bringing together comprehensive software, managed services, FIX network and data for a single solution."
