Invesco selects Portware for global multi-asset trading

Invesco Ltd has selected Portware Enterprise as the centralised hub for execution management across all of its asset classes.

Invesco selected Portware based on the system’s flexibility, multi-asset class coverage, global reach, and ability to create complex and efficient proprietary trading solutions.
 
Portware is the only provider to inject artificial intelligence and commission optimisation tools for algo management and real-time decision support into the EMS. Portware Enterprise is an ultra-fast, open, thinking EMS that automates and bolsters the buy side’s most complex workflows. It deploys the latest in visualisation tools to empower traders to "trade the graphs" and sort, filter, and see their orders in a way that helps them make the most informed decisions in the shortest time.
 
The customisable, real-time system acts as a central platform to communicate, analyse and execute investment ideas for global equities, futures, options, fixed income, and FX. It integrates with other systems and provides clients unconflicted access to liquidity providers, broker algorithmic suites, and trading destinations worldwide. 
 
“It is well recognised that reducing transaction costs through technology or improved trading strategies has an immediate impact on investment returns. We realised that the only way to truly differentiate ourselves from our peers in the trade implementation phase of the investment process is by taking greater ownership of execution management technology. After an evaluation of different EMS’ available on the market today we found Portware to be the right partner for us,” says Saurabh Srivastava, global head of electronic trading, Invesco.
 
“Today’s fragmented and fast markets make it impossible to manually keep track of every order and execution with a standard EMS that merely transforms manual steps into clicks,” says Alfred Eskandar, chief executive of Portware. “Forward thinking firms like Invesco now demand customised automation in their trading workflows that adds value from idea creation to analysis to execution. We’re honoured to welcome Invesco to the growing list of clients who have selected Portware to help free their traders to use their skills and experience to make fast and accurate decisions that enhance performance.”
