CQG, a leading global provider of high-performance technology solutions for market makers, traders, brokers, commercial hedgers and exchanges, today announced a strategic partnership with global Fintech leader, Broadridge Financial Solutions Inc. (NYSE: BR) that will integrate the two firms' Execution Management System (EMS) and Order Management System (OMS) respectively.
The combination of CQG's front-end trading technology with Broadridge's Order Management System and the NYFIX network will be a first of its kind out-of-the-box solution for institutional customers who wish to take advantage of a full front-, middle- and back-office technology suite. These types of partnerships complement Broadridge's open architecture approach of the OMS.
CQG completed a FIX connection into Broadridge to allow for order flow from CQG directly into Broadridge's infrastructure to be managed and routed out to its network of exchanges and liquidity providers. Additional development underway will complete the effort to allow for seamless workflow between the two systems. Viewing and managing orders will be achievable and in-sync in either system. Customers can stage orders, apply algorithmic logic to existing orders, splice and bundle orders, manage allocations, and much more. Traditionally, clients have been tasked with piecing together a solution with a variety of technology providers and have the added effort and cost of making those tools work together.
CQG CEO Ryan Moroney said: "We believe this strategic partnership will bring ease along with significant savings opportunities to our mutual customers. Rather than making a choice between an OMS and an EMS, customers will be able to deploy an enterprise solution that offers both to their internal desks and clients alike."
Together, Moroney said, CQG and Broadridge look forward to enhancing the workflow of their institutional customers and providing best-in-class execution and order management.
