Charles River IMS Wins Best Buy-Side Order Management System (OMS) at the Buy-Side Technology Awards 2018

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nov 15, 2018–Charles River, a State Street Company and provider of the Charles River Investment Management Solution ( Charles River IMS[1] ), has won “Best Buy-Side OMS” at the 2018 Buy-Side Technology Awards. The awards aim to recognise the leading technologies and vendors in their area of expertise and are judged by buy-side focused technology consultants and WatersTechnology’s journalists.

Charles River IMS leverages the capabilities of an OMS and an EMS (Execution Management System), creating a single integrated Order and Execution Management System[2] (OEMS). Traders can work more productively by eliminating multiple interfaces and streamlining complex workflows that are inherent with separate systems, and having a combined OEMS can also help reduce the potential for trading errors.

“We are continually updating our technology to enhance trade decision support and help investment managers improve execution quality as the market and regulatory landscape evolves,” said Gavin Lavelle, Managing Director EMEA, Charles River. “The combined OEMS enables traders to focus on trades requiring high-touch and let automation handle the low-touch trades.”

Charles River has won several awards for portfolio management, compliance and trading, the most recent being the Best Buy-Side OMS at the Waters Ranking Awards in New York.
