ECO Advisors Live With INDATA’S Cloud-Based iPM OMS
Firm utilizing INDATA for Trading, Compliance, and Reporting Functions for Long/short UCITS Fund via Microsoft Azure
Greenwich, CT – September 3, 2019 – INDATA®, a leading industry provider of software, technology, and managed services for buy-side firms, today announced that ECO Advisors LTD, based in London, is live with iPM OMS for the launch of the firm’s flagship fund, the Protea UCITS II – ECO Advisors ESG Absolute Return Fund.
ECO (short for Ethical Capital Opportunity) is a boutique asset management firm focused on ESG absolute return equity investing. The firm aims to deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns with a low correlation to the global equity market utilizing ESG considerations as the primary driver of security selection and a differentiated alpha source over the market cycle.
ECO selected INDATA from a short list of OMS vendors. A significant consideration centered around the solution’s ability to handle equity swaps across a range of front-office functions including trading, compliance, portfolio management, and reporting. INDATA’S iPM OMS provides a number of key features, including:
- Easily configurable workflows for blotters, screens, dashboards, and reports
- Flexible FIX connectivity, including embedded algo strategies and rapid-fire trade execution tools and workflows as well as EMS integration with leading providers
- Advanced functionality for equity swaps and other asset classes
- Public cloud, private cloud, or traditional/deployed versions in full production
According to Tristan Elwell, Co-Founder, CRO/COO for ECO, INDATA was able to come in with an OMS solution that met all of its key requirements from a functionality and technology standpoint, including having a true cloud-based offering. “We were referred to INDATA by a colleague and were well down the road in terms of our system search. As we were just starting out, costs very much mattered and INDATA was also able to put together a solution that ticked all of our boxes including cloud,“ said Elwell. For ECO, INDATA is utilizing Microsoft Azure for its cloud solution and INDATA is one of few providers who fully supports private as well as public cloud-based offerings for clients, in addition to in-house/deployed systems.
“We are very pleased to welcome ECO Advisors as an INDATA client and we look forward to their continued success,” commented David J. Csiki, President of INDATA. “Whether hedge funds with long/short strategies utilizing swaps, or traditional long-only type investment managers, INDATA offers a comprehensive OMS solution at a compelling cost without the excessive fees of other providers,” he added.
