FlexTrade Systems, a provider of multi-asset execution and order management systems, and Woodline Partners, a San Francisco-based investment firm, have integrated MSCI’s Barra real-time portfolio risk and factor analysis solutions into the FlexONE OEMS.

For Woodline, the goal was to integrate factor analytics with institutional grade position, performance and trade management, which has been achieved.
