French AM Lyxor deploys FlexTrade’s EMS to address demanding ESG strategies

Rick Steves

Lyxor will make the best of FlexTrade’s EMS as the European asset manager increases its focus on the ESG theme.

Lyxor Asset Management has deployed FlexTrade Systems‘ FlexNOW EMS for the ability to trade several thousand stocks and futures across many brokers and algos in seconds.

The multi-asset execution and order management system is regularly updated for automation, more asset classes, and the ability to adapt to newer workflows.

Samy Debbah, Head of Dealing Desk at Lyxor Intermediation, said: “Integrating a new EMS in our complex workflow is never easy but with FlexNOW we have replaced our old solutions and greatly improved the efficiency and operational safety of our workflows, especially when working with larger baskets. The Team’s ability to quickly respond to feedback has been impressive, continually improving the platform to meet our needs. FlexNOW has worked seamlessly both in the office and when working remotely, an absolute must during these times.”

Lyxor, a subsidiary of Societe Generale, is a European asset management specialist with EUR 159.3 billion under management. As with other  companies within the industry nowadays, Lyxor is increasingly adept of investment solutions to meet the long-term challenges of sustainable investments, with a particular focus on the fight against climate change.

Adi Prnjavorac, Head of Sales FlexNOW at FlexTrade, commented:  “We are pleased to have onboarded a prestigious client such as Lyxor Asset Management. Lyxor benefits from our strong support and quick response to new requests. Not only have we enjoyed adding new functionality to improve their efficiency, their expertise feeds back into the platform to the benefit of the whole FlexNOW community.”

Manuela Bauer, EMEA Sales Director at FlexTrade Systems, added: “We are very proud to welcome Lyxor Asset Management as a client, as part of our strong commitment to the French Asset Management community. The adaptability underpinning FlexTrade’s approach to implementation has allowed us to deliver a trading system tailored to Lyxor’s vision, which will continue to help optimize the efficiency of the trading process in the future. We look forward to supporting them with our technology and to our ongoing partnership.”

FlexTrade has recently partnered with TFI, a Chinese-based financial group which, amongst others, provides institutional brokerage services to trade in equities on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. TFI was formerly running Bloomberg SSEOMS. After the decommissioning, TFI selected FlexTrade because of its functionalities, its flexibility and trading technology.

The EMS provider is new to the Chinese and Hong Kong markets, but may very well bring innovation to the sell-side community with its capabilities in Analytics, Global Program Trading and Enhanced Low-Touch Order Routing.
