Alantra Equities Goes Live with Ullink’s High-Touch and Connectivity Solutions

Alantra Equities (formerly N+1 Equities) has gone live with Ullink’s high-touch order management system (OMS) ODISYS and NYFIX connectivity hub. The Spanish equities broker division of the global mid-market investment banking and asset management specialist Alantra, went live in advance of the January 3, 2018 Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II) deadline to ensure compliance with the regulation.

Alantra Equities turned to Ullink when it decided to replace its existing platform with a modular solution that allowed for institutional broking specialisation and offered scalability to cope with future growth. It also needed to ensure full compliance with MiFID II. The selection was made on the basis of Ullink’s long-term vision and roadmap, value for money, experience, and commitment to market participants.

Alantra Equities’ Adolfo Ximenez de Embun says: “Ullink has a strong reputation for supplying outstanding electronic trading solutions. The breadth of its offering across trading and connectivity met our needs for a modular but well-integrated solution.”

The implementation of Ullink’s ODISYS high touch OMS allows Alantra’s traders to benefit from a full range of front office and pre-trade risk capabilities. The software also includes pre-trade and post-trade transaction cost analysis and best execution reporting based on integration with partner solutions from OTAS and LiquidMetrix. Connectivity to Ullink’s NYFIX community of buy-sides, sell-sides and trading venues is provided via the NYFIX order routing network and Ullink’s UL BRIDGE connectivity middleware.
