smartTrade Ready for MiFID II Challenges

AIX-EN-PROVENCE, France, Jan 18, 2017 (BUSINESS WIRE) —
smartTrade Technologies, a multi-asset electronic trading solutions
pioneer, has been working with a number of institutions on MiFIR/MiFID
II implementations.

Transparency, best execution, algorithmic trading and transaction
reporting are some of the key areas of concern identified. With less
than a year before the 3-Jan-2018 deadline, smartTrade announces that it
is ready for MiFID II challenges.

smartTrade provides banks and dealers with cross-asset solutions for
sales-trader workflow management, record keeping, best execution and
transaction reporting, as well as platform resiliency.

In order to help investment firms electronify their sales-trader
workflow and address their pre-trade and post-trade transparency
requirements, smartTrade provides a unique and truly cross-asset
single-dealer platform supporting both FX and Fixed income instruments,
including derivatives. The platform allows users to visualize key
regulatory information based on dynamic rules and can be integrated with
upstream and downstream sources, such as a pricing engine, internal
website or Approved Public Arrangement (APA) provider.

For Best Execution and Transaction reporting, smartTrade’s clients can
leverage the market leading smartAnalytics solution. This solution
addresses big data analytics requirements, facilitating the storage of
all trading information (quotes, RFQs, orders and trades, including
intermediate states) as well as generating numerous business and
regulatory reports.

The smartTrade MiFID II solutions can be delivered as a fully hosted and
managed certified platform, as well as software only. The hosted option
reduces time to market and costs. It also meets algorithmic trading
requirements, in particular for high-frequency trading (HFT), such as
microsecond timestamping.

“Many financial firms have approached us looking for a partner to help
them get ready in time for MiFID II.” says David Vincent, CEO of
smartTrade Technologies
. “With less than a year to go, clients
appreciate our regulatory expertise, proven delivery record and our
hosted and managed solution which allows for a quick yet assured time to
