PARIS, April 12, 2011: Linedata, the global solutions provider dedicated to the investment management and credit industries, today announced the launch of Linedata Trader+, its new trading platform which incorporates not only advanced trading tools with execution management features, but also includes pre-trade compliance, commission management, integrated pre-, intra- and post-day TCA, full trade history, streaming market data and global connectivity to over 400 brokers all in one seamless solution.
According to research by The Tabb Group, 40% of buy-side traders would like commission management capabilities and 37% want compliance tools available within their trading environment. “Firms are gravitating toward a single system that best suits their needs,” said Larry Tabb, founder and CEO of The Tabb Group. “Having these key features available in a single platform provides additional speed and efficiencies which are otherwise lacking in a trader’s current workflow.”

Traders can not only see the market, but they can act on it in an intuitive platform.

Integrated with the fully managed Linedata Lynx service, Linedata Trader+ offers market access to 400+ global brokers and 50+ partners (ATS, dark pools, broker algo’s etc.). Linedata Trader+ provides a flexible workspace and integrated workflow for an intuitive and immersive user experience.
