TradingScreen Inc. (TS), the all-asset class order and execution management system (OEMS), today announced the global launch of QUO, a unique cloud-based ‘software-as-a-service’ investment management platform. QUO offers investment managers efficient and streamlined execution across multiple workflow streams.
For wealth and investment managers, adding value to clients is at the top of the agenda, ahead of complex and costly IT solutions. Until now, there have been limited options for firms who need a lighter touch OEMS that is easy to deploy and will simplify investment management processes, from start of day file upload to order execution.
Different features of QUO will allow investment managers to adjust seamlessly between different trading strategies, giving them a more comprehensive view of their portfolios. The solution enables trading directly from positions without having to log into multiple portals as well as interacting with their broker’s central dealing desk. This means firms with various trading systems will be able to view all asset class activity using just one screen efficiently.
In addition to the launch of the new product division, QUO will be headed up by former HSBC, Standard Chartered and RBS executive, Will Lawton. Based in Singapore, Lawton will focus on strengthening and extending TS's QUO offering globally. Commenting on the launch, Lawton said: “QUO can simplify a wealth manager's workflow to create a seamless and more effective trade management and execution of multiple portfolios, so they can focus their efforts on delivering superior returns to investors.”
Pierre Schroeder, TradingScreen Chief Executive Officer, added: “QUO is a natural extension of the TS strategy. We believe this solution, alongside the industry experience brought by Will Lawton, will help to redefine how wealth managers and investment managers operate."
