Buyside EMS for equities, fixed income and listed derivatives trading are dominated by the need for greater operational efficiency and achieving better execution for clients. The overarching principle is one of automation of the trading activities - when, where and how the order is executed.

There are two families of dealing software solutions:

  • Execution Management Systems (EMSs)
  • Order Management Systems (OMSs) or (OEMS)

This section deals with Execution Management Systems (EMSs)

EMS are used by dealers to obtain best execution for their investors, increasingly in combination with advanced, automated and algorithmic trading strategies, DMA and smart order routing. High volume traders suffer from the associated limitations of a combined EMS / OMS (EOMS) and separate best-of-breed- OMS and EMS systems tend allow more control and refinements in the trading process.
