Like many financial markets firms, StoneX’s post-trade operations were siloed by asset type, most notably equity versus fixed income, and by the use of multiple OEMS systems. As a result, the technologies used to support the middle and back-office workflows were not integrated, creating a series of operational and financial risks, and were resource and cost-intensive to manage.
StoneX implemented Genesis Trade Allocation Manager (TAM) to achieve a universal post trade middle office solution. TAM provided StoneX with:
- A single middle office platform for capturing trades from multiple OEMS and multiple asset classes and markets
- Automation and electronic workflow catering to the specifics of multiple asset classes, for example equities, listed derivatives and fixed income
- A centralized system for trade allocation and management of client entity data and settlement instructions
- Efficient exceptions management and an alert system that helps quickly identify and resolve mismatches
The modern, flexible TAM solution dramatically simplified the post trade technology ecosystem at StoneX and, for the first time, unified connectivity and automation between its front, middle and back offices.
With a single platform that supports multi-asset workflow for trade allocation, the firm becomes more operationally efficient and has the tools to reduce errors and cost.
StoneX has been able to allocate team resources away from post trade operations roles and has enjoyed a decrease in operational costs. At the same time, the efficiency and control provided by TAM helped StoneX improve the level of client service it provides, resulting in more client trading activity and revenue to the firm.
Since it first deployed TAM for StoneX in 2020, Genesis has added multiple customized features and capabilities to further support StoneX trading operations.
