InvestEdge Adds Trade Order Management Interface to Wealth Management Platform


Expanded Trading Capabilities Deliver Straight Through Processing to Financial Services Firms with Automated Trade Execution and Other Productivity Enhancing Features

PITTSBURGH, Dec. 28 -InvestEdge, Inc., a rapidly growing provider of wealth management solutions to banks, trust companies, brokerage firms, and financial advisors, now offers expanded trade order management capabilities through InvestEdge ASP Version 4.5, the industry's premier wealth management platform.

The enhanced trading features provide investment firms with end-to-end trade order management capabilities by facilitating straight through processing. Trade orders, which can be input directly into InvestEdge ASP or created using one of the system's many rebalancing or block trading features, can now be passed directly to a trading system, which in turn executes the trades to the broker of choice. The transactions are then automatically affirmed and posted to the investment firm's books of record system.

The initial integration was developed between InvestEdge ASP, Sterling Financial Systems, Inc., and Mid Atlantic Capital Corporation. InvestEdge ASP provides a complete wealth management platform comprised of tools for portfolio management, performance measurement, trade automation, compliance monitoring, advanced reporting, CRM and knowledge management. Sterling Financial Systems delivers trade order management and order routing, while Mid Atlantic Capital provides trade execution.

"The ability to provide straight through processing that is tightly aligned with the overall portfolio management process is in high demand," said Bob Stewart, president of InvestEdge. "We are closely attuned to the needs of financial services firms, and constantly seek ways to improve their productivity and profitability. Our latest trading features are prime examples of how InvestEdge technology can have a positive impact on our customers' day- to-day processes."

Scott Neff, a principal at Glenview Trust, recently deployed InvestEdge ASP's expanded trade automation features. He says, "The latest trading tools save us significant amounts of time and dramatically reduce the chance for errors. Through a single interface, we can access real-time price quotes, produce proposed buy/sell lists, compare potential trades to restricted holdings, evaluate the impact of the transactions on the portfolio, and release trades to an integrated order management system. This can all be accomplished without re-keying any data or leaving the InvestEdge system."

Steve Sierszulski CEO at Sterling Financial Systems adds, "The integration with InvestEdge ASP provides a much-needed solution for trade automation. Investment firms now have a seamless link between the front office, back office and Wall Street. This dramatically streamlines the transaction management process."
