FlexTrade Systems has appointed Paul Alves as senior vice president, global FX business development, with a focus on expanding the company’s buy side trading solutions to asset managers.
According to Alves, automation efficiency, execution flexibility and cost conciseness for both the asset manager and their bank partners, are key areas in which the buy side is now focused.
“One size no longer fits all, and asset managers are looking for solutions that support varying degrees of execution automation and workflow customisation, while expanding their available execution methods and minimising risks. Regulatory requirements, liquidity access and increased efficiency demands are all driving asset managers to evaluate how they execute their FX trades. The need for an FX solution that incorporates all these factors into their trading environment while containing costs is critical,” says Alves.
