ITG, a leading execution broker and research provider, today announced the launch of its comprehensive hedge fund platform for Asia Pacific.
The solution includes integrated execution, order and position management tools designed to improve operational efficiency and costs for hedge funds.
To support the offering, ITG has hired two experienced hedge fund platform specialists. Phil Chevalier joins ITG in Hong Kong. He previously worked at Advent Software and Eze Software, specializing in portfolio management and order management systems (OMS). Gaye Anable joins ITG’s Sydney office from Bloomberg, where she led the Australian OMS team. Both report into Simon Wade, ITG’s Asia Pacific Head of Sales.

We have used this expertise to integrate our Triton Black execution management system with ITG Position Manager, an order and position management system, and our global ITG Net FIX network.
