As a result of this new service to be in place by the final quarter of 2020, thinkFolio clients will be able to access EBSI’s execution functionality.

Provider of electronic trading platforms and technology services in FX markets EBS today announced the connectivity between its EBS Institutional (EBSI) execution management system and thinkFolio, a leading multi-asset investment management platform from IHS Markit.

As a result of this new service to be in place by the final quarter of 2020, thinkFolio clients will be able to access EBSI’s unique execution functionality to cut their trading costs. In addition, mutual clients of IHS Markit and EBSI will benefit from thinkFolio’s extensive cash and currency management capabilities, sophisticated analytics and enhanced liquidity. The integration of workflows across the two systems will enable portfolio managers and traders to aggregate or split FX orders in thinkFolio, before routing the orders to be executed through EBSI.

“Client demand continues to grow for advanced functionality and consistent workflow management solutions,” said Hugh Whelan, Head of EBSI. “This link will improve our clients’ experience, especially as IHS Markit’s thinkFolio is often their system provider of choice. Connectivity between EBS Institutional and thinkFolio is a key milestone in our strategy to expand the suite of services we provide and efficiencies we can deliver to our client base.”

“While multi-currency cash and FX management functionality have always been a core strength of thinkFolio, we are continuously evaluating opportunities to provide our clients with a richer suite of liquidity venues to support the implementation of their investment and hedging strategies. Our enhanced connectivity with EBSI will further extend our clients’ access to liquidity across currencies, time zones, and FX products, enabling dynamic trading opportunities and ensuring competitive execution,” said Brett Schechterman, Managing Director and Global Head of Business for thinkFolio at IHS Markit.

EBSI is a fully automated execution management system, using industry leading technology to significantly reduce trading costs and enhance performance by automating and solving complex trading and workflow problems.
