We provide an outsourced trading solution, which transmits and manages intraday orders on behalf of the Investment Manager for a fixed monthly fee. This is a perfect alternative for hedge funds who have insufficient dedicated trading capacity.

Our concept is that any outsource solution should be Fixed-Fee. Implementing the Alpha system will be very similar to having an in-house centralised Trading Desk, but without the key man risk and at a considerably lower cost.

This would involve our Trading Desk, transmitting orders on client’s trading lines with their brokers. We are recognised as a person/company authorised to transmit orders on a client’s behalf, whilst the full commission and settlement would be directed between the client’s back office and their broker

As an overview, the key areas of benefit are:

  • Complete Transparency
  • Low monthly fee (equivalent to one headcount), payable either by the Management Company or via Commission Sharing Agreement (CSA)
  • No additional licence fees (Bloomberg/market data/PMS/OMS/EMS)
  • Fast execution
  • Promotes better relationship with Banks and Brokers
  • Full Business Continuity Planning
  • Holiday cover
  • No key man risk
  • No trading capacity issues
