FlexTrade to Expand Goldman Sachs Service Offering

April 24, 2019

Leading trading technology provider, FlexTrade has announced its motive to expand its working with Goldman Sachs. FlexTrade has been providing the investment bank with the execution management system – FlexTRADER – for some time.

As per the latest arrangement, FlexTrade will be working with the investment banking giant to strengthen its indication of interest (IOI) liquidity offering. 

Danny Mallinson, Head of EMEA Equity Execution Services at Goldman Sachs said:

“As our franchise growth affords us the opportunity to send increasing amounts of targeted, actionable natural liquidity to clients, and solving for the best workflow solutions is a natural next step.”

Goldman Sachs will now have IOI profiling and analysis capabilities added to its existing system and the customers will able to action IOI liquidity directly from the trading blotter. The blotter allows traders to see how much of an order can be completed using the bank’s actionable liquidity. 

Andy Mahoney, Head of Sales at FlexTrade UK said:

“Taking multiple factors into account, including AFME classification, traders can now easily differentiate between risk and principal, and systematically highlight the IOIs that are most relevant at the point of execution.”
