The benefits of outsourcing your trading desk

Operational Efficiency

One of the key benefits of using an outsourced trading desk is the cost savings it can provide. We streamline the entire trade lifecycle, significantly lowering costs and reducing risk, while managing regulatory compliance and enhancing transparency.

By outsourcing the trading function, asset managers can avoid the costs of hiring and training a team of in-house traders, as well as the costs associated with maintaining the necessary trading infrastructure. This can help to reduce the fund’s overall operating expenses and improve its profitability.

Another advantage of using our outsourced trading desk solutions is the deep knowledge and unparalleled global market expertise we bring to the trading process. Our outsourced trading desks employ experienced traders who have a deep understanding of the markets and the investment strategies of market-leading funds. This can improve the quality of trade execution and reduce the risk of errors in the trading process.

Risk Management

Benefit from the expertise of seasoned traders who masterfully navigate market fluctuations, employing cutting-edge technology to deliver sharp insights and robust risk mitigation. Utilizing our external trading desk service not only sharpens your market edge, but diversifies risk exposure, tapping into a wealth of diverse trading strategies and perspectives.

Greater Flexibility for Your Needs

In addition to these benefits, outsourced trading desks provide managers with greater flexibility in their trading operations, allowing them to choose to use the service only when it is needed, rather than maintaining a full-time, in-house trading team. This adaptability can help to reduce overhead costs and improves the overall efficiency of your managed assets.
