BST Awards 2019: Best Buy-Side OMS—SS&C Eze


Today’s asset managers need to navigate complex environments. They are increasingly being challenged by regulatory obligations in the US and Europe, along with the expansion of electronic trading across fixed-income and derivatives markets, all of which is taking place against a backdrop of rising cost pressures.
Asset managers are therefore becoming more innovative and efficient in their operations, using automation, artificial intelligence and cloud-based technologies. SS&C Eze’s order management system, Eze OMS, stands out in this category by optimizing users’ workflows across the enterprise. Notably, the Boston-based firm also won the best EMS category in this year’s BST Awards.  

According to Frank Orzechowski, managing director, product management at SS&C Eze, the platform is updated every six weeks to meet clients’ current needs. In the past year, the firm has refined Eze OMS’ functionality to address regulatory changes in the wake of Mifid II. It also focused on building smoother and faster rules-based workflows to address the increasing number of separately managed accounts deployed across its client base. 

Additionally, SS&C Eze has worked on allocations, position-checking and pre-trade compliance workflows, which are integrated with its EMS platform and liquidity access capabilities. 

Looking ahead, Eze OMS will continue to feature incremental releases based on clients’ needs. More generally, its product roadmap is concentrated on regulatory compliance, scaling performance and capacity, ongoing workflow improvements, and more seamless asset class coverage. Its primary focus is to enable the next wave of trade-routing automation. 

Orzechowski says that as Eze OMS has scaled its systems to handle greater data quantities, it has also sought to simplify and streamline how that data is visualized and processed by users. 

One way it has done this is by building out rules-based workflows, as a means of driving configurability over customizability. “Not only are these solutions easier to deploy and support, but they offer the flexibility and adaptability demanded by our clients to meet the evolving operational challenges of today’s asset managers,” he says.
