Charles River rules … ok?

Bobsguide says that TradeTech 2008 Names Charles River IMS Best Buy-Side OMS for Second Consecutive Year … Of course thats equity tradetech .. or at the very least now there isnt a FI one, “primarily-equity” TradeTech, though surely nowadays that’s academic; there is a single cross-asset-class buyside opinion on what the best OMS is?


  1. I’d politely suggest that there is no such thing as a cross asset buy-side OMS. While CRD and LZ can handle equity workflow in an ok fashion, neither really handles the whole fixed income workflow. Over the range of instruments such as short term CP, deposits, corporate, govies, CDS and derivatives (etc) there is a lack of depth of understanding in the vendor space of what a buy-side fixed income workflow actually encompasses.
