Robeco taps FlexTrade EMS to access Goldman Sachs pre-trade analytics

abdelaziz Fathi

Broker-neutral technology firm FlexTrade Systems announced that its solution FlexTRADER EMS has been certified for integration with Dutch asset manager Robeco.

Robeco has integrated FlexTRADER’s functionality, which offers a customizable execution management system (EMS) with pre-defined trading strategies and tactics for portfolio and single stock trading across all asset classes. The move aims to support its institutional fixed income business, including access to pre-trade analytics from Goldman Sachs.

With this integration, Robeco’s trading teams can access and view Goldman Sachs’ pre-trade analytics as actionable intelligence, embedded within their order blotter. This collaboration enables them to adjust their trading style and strategy based on intra-day, trading-related information.

Additionally, Robeco’s traders can set parameters and apply dynamic rules within FlexTRADER EMS to automate and streamline workflows to improve efficiency. This was made possible with the trading clusters automatically populated within the order blotter.

The integration also ensures that Robeco’s clients benefit from a standardized interface between the two platforms, which will provide scalability and reduce costs.

FlexTrade’s product suite offers access to market data providers while ‎‎easily integrating with any order management system (OMS) via FIX and ‎‎API. Global investment managers prefer the solution since the consolidation of equities, FX, listed options, futures, or any combination is essential on the same platform in order to ensure smooth functioning. The multi-asset execution management system can also be tailored for global access to broker algorithms, as well as the ability to build proprietary algorithms.

Bastiaan Berendsen, Senior Equity Trader at Robeco, stated: “We continually look to streamline and augment our trading team’s workflows with the highest quality data and analytics to improve overall trading performance for our clients. Leveraging Goldman Sachs pre-trade Equity Data Clusters within FlexTRADER EMS delivers the actionable intelligence our traders need to achieve this and enables us to automate our workflows further to improve efficiency and focus on high-touch orders.”

Romanos Piperakis, Global Head of Electronic Trading Execution Research at Goldman Sachs, stated: ”Embedding GS IP directly into traders’ workflow is a significant step in improving efficiency and further informing their process. The continuous evolution of global equity markets renders staying abreast of trading behavior characteristics a daunting task. Our clustering framework, alongside next-generation impact modeling, brings rigorous modeling techniques to traders’ decision-making. Notably, the integration with FlexTrade allows a direct, implementable translation of said techniques to actionable outcomes.”

Andy Mahoney, Managing Director, EMEA, at FlexTrade, noted: “Clients are continually looking to leverage increasingly sophisticated pre-trade analytics into the workflow to improve the quality of their execution. Enriching the trading blotter with pre-trade analytics and intraday trading behavior allows traders to speed up or slow down their trading activities accordingly. In addition, our open architecture and “API first” approach removes the friction of integrating new data sets, meaning Robeco’s teams can focus on how the data will be used as part of a natural workflow, both manually and in an automated way.”
