In the last decade, Order Management and Execution Management on the buy-side has been a fast-changing environment, often playing catch-up with enhancement and innovation on the sell side. Having direct access to markets, as well as more sophisticated Order Management capability, has become increasingly important to Asset Managers – a need that software providers have responded to in recent years.
As this market evolves, Axxsys is staying ahead of other consultancies in being there for our clients and ensuring they have the latest innovation available as they determine their execution strategy. We are also working closely with inter-dealer brokers to maximise our understanding of how these businesses are positioning themselves to serve the Investment Management sector.
Ensuring that your IT strategy is fully aligned to your target operating model is key to any business success. For many firms, focus on technology strategy only takes place after a business model has already been derived. As a result, progress can be hamstrung by decisions made in isolation, excessive emphasis on preserving the current state, and a limited understanding of the investment required to support change budgets. It may also be hard to secure organisational buy-in that the technology model should be in lock-step with the definition of any business objectives.
At Axxsys, our professional and experienced practitioners provide advisory and execution services to put in place and align our clients’ strategy.
