Sell-side execution management systems for equities 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 software solutions for the Sellside:

  1. Execution Management Systems (EMSs)
  2. Order Management Systems (OMSs)

This section deals with Sellside Execution Management Systems (EMSs)

SSEMS are used by brokers to access electronic markets and achieve the best executions for their clients, increasingly in combination with advanced, automated and algorithmic trading strategies and smart order routing.

High volume and specialist 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.
