The solution

Eze EMS is designed to help its users get their orders to market as quickly and efficiently as possible. The Eze EMS Algo Wheel and automated order routing functionality helps traders automate low-touch orders so they can focus on capturing alpha on their more important and harder-to-work trades.

Secret sauce

SS&C Eze focuses on developing and delivering technology that modernizes investment managers’ technology stacks, backed by personalized support. Delivered as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform, traders can access the Eze EMS from anywhere with minimal total cost of ownership. Eze EMS also has integrated short locates, access to institutional digital asset liquidity, and is integrated with Eze OMS, offering users a true OEMS platform with synchronized blotters.
