FlexTrade Launches New Issue Management System in Consultation with Neuberger Berman

FlexTrade Systems (@FlexTrade), a global leader in multi-asset execution and order management systems announces a new offering for traders of public equity to plan, manage, and execute equity offerings via their new issue management system, FlexNIMS.

By leveraging this all-in-one solution, global buy-side firms can reduce the time and risk involved with the new issue management process for IPOs, Follow-Ons, and Block Trades by managing the process from the deal evaluation phase, internal interest aggregation and approvals, to compliance checking, and customized individual allocations on deal day. Finally, FlexNIMS can integrate directly with order management systems to book trades all within one user environment.

FlexNIMS provides seamless integration with order management systems, allowing for efficient booking of trades within a single user interface. This comprehensive approach enhances process efficiency and reduces operational risks, directly contributing to our mission of maximizing shareholder value.

Benefits of FlexNIMS include:

  • Comprehensive end-to-end ECM workflow for primary market equity deals.
  • Calendar-based system encompassing order entry, aggregation, allocation and booking
  • Digital order entry and allocation, reducing errors and increasing PM / trader efficiency
  • Automatic publication of deal notifications throughout lifecycle of offering
  • Sub-allocations according to the user’s internal allocation policy
  • Incorporation of internal legal, compliance and oversight policies
  • OMS integration to facilitate order booking and finalization

Vijay Kedia, President and CEO at FlexTrade stated: We are pleased to launch FlexNIMS, the only product of its kind that is seamlessly integrated with a multi-asset EMS, multiple OMS solutions and provides end-to-end automation of Primary Market workflow while reducing risk and connecting all parties in the pre-IPO process. FlexNIMS enables buy-side firms to capture PM interest in equity offerings, aggregate interest across the firm, automate compliance checks, allocation and finally book the trades in their OMSs. The power in this tool derives from the close working relationship and deep insight from our client, Neuberger Berman, and demonstrates our commitment to innovation.”

Rob Arancio, Head of Trading at Neuberger Berman said: “The team at FlexTrade worked to understand the particular needs of our firm. We believe that the technology will benefit our clients as we work more efficiently in pursuit of best pricing and execution. The FlexTrade team has built an end-to-end solution for Equity Capital Markets participation that allows for full straight-through-processing from notification of a deal, right to allocation of shares in the order management system. The system is live on our platform and has successfully completed a number of transactions.
