Share article

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. The integration allows portfolio managers using FlexONE to model orders more efficiently and better understand pro forma risk before staging the order for trading. Additionally, risk managers using FlexONE’s pre-trade compliance engine can set thresholds to be observed in real time. For Woodline, the goal was to integrate factor analytics with institutional grade position, performance and trade management, which has been achieved.
