A prominent brokerage house in Philippines wanted to streamline and revamp their securities trading business and provide online trading for local and international stocks, backed by risk management and back office support. It wanted to become the industry leader by increasing its market share and client footprint.

That means more productivity and efficiency in their brokerage software for better stock management.

An integrated back office also allows the investor position to be updated in real-time, as and when corporate actions benefits are received in investor account, which in turn, helps the latter to take advantage of the market movements better. Multi-asset trading capabilities and an integrated back-office empowers the investors to use the same cash account to trade in multi-asset, enabling faster movement of money from trading in any asset and re-ploughing into a different asset.
