Outsourced Trading Desk

Simplicity Above Complexity - Allowing You To Optimize Your Goals From Execution To Settlement

With the pressure from multiple factors including rising costs, the ever-changing regulatory landscape and the bid to keep up with the latest technology, outsourced trading desks have been a growing trend in the funds industry in recent years, providing hedge fund managers with an alternative to traditional in-house trading desks.

Our integrated trading solution helps managers alleviate cost pressure by outsourcing the trade lifecycle. It is an opportunity to meaningfully lower costs, reduce risk, manage regulatory compliance and enhance transparency and operational efficiency.

By outsourcing trade execution, managers can focus on their core service, managing their portfolios and generating alpha.

The benefits of outsourcing your trading desk

Cost savings

One of the key benefits of using an outsourced trading desk is the cost savings it can provide. By outsourcing the trading function, 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 an outsourced trading desk is the expertise that it can bring to the trading process. An outsourced trading desk typically employs experienced traders who have a deep understanding of the markets and the investment strategies employed by hedge funds. This can help to improve the quality of trade execution and reduce the risk of errors in the trading process.

Greater flexibility

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 can help to reduce overhead costs and improve the fund’s overall efficiency.
