Case Study

XP Investments boosts their trade volume 10x

Using The Genesis Trade Allocation Manager XP Investments optimized their middle office workflows.

The Challenge

XP Investments (XP) is one of the top investment firms in South America.

It has more than 3.4 million global clients and offers more than 800 investment products, including investment funds and private pensions spanning, equities, derivatives, fixed income and structured products.

Valuing flexibility and scalability, XP uses several OMS technologies and values the ability to change its OMS when needed.

Main problems

XP used several OMS technologies

This created a challenge for middle office teams trying to keep pace with change, especially since post trade infrastructure at XP had not received as much investment as its technology-driven trading and customer experience initiatives.

Manual processes and spreadsheets

In the middle office, many workflows and processes were managed using Excel, with no or very little automation and control. Beyond the cost and risk inherent to manual processes, the middle office reality limited XP’s ability to expand its trading volume and client base.

Traditional vendors lacked flexibility and integrations

While the firm was desperate to improve agility and efficiency, XP concluded that traditional vendor solutions did not provide the flexibility, customization and numerous integrations they required.

“Now the team can complete the trade allocation process and create the client confirmations in half the time. ”

The Solution

XP opted to implement Genesis’ Trade Allocation Manager (TAM).

TAM offers seamless integration with leading front-office platforms (OMS/EMS), providing a real-time centralized middle-office solution engineered to handle multiple asset classes, including equities, fixed income, FX and derivatives.

TAM supports all middle office functionality, including client and market-side trade capture, block and allocation processing, fee management, trade enrichment, trade confirmations and management of settlement instructions.

It also offers integrations to custodial platforms and internal back-office systems.
