Hong Kong-based multi-strategy hedge fund Infini Capital Management has selected TORA for its pairs trading solution. The firm chose the TORA cloud-based order and execution management system (OEMS) on the basis of its configurable functionality and on-the-ground support for fund trading activities. The functionality of TORA’s multi-asset, multi-region and broker-neutral pairs application was another deciding factor. The pairs trading application provides a high degree of control over execution via a series of parameters such as slicing and concurrency. There is also full support for bulk uploads and capacity to trade thousands of pairs concurrently.
