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
