When finding liquidity hedge funds value their EMSs and OMSs above all other technologies Which are the products or tools that are most useful to you?

Which are the products or tools that are most useful to you?

58 responses Why are you planning to change your EMS? Are you planning to change your EMS? Nearly half of buy side participants plan to change their EMS in 2009

58 responses Why are you planning to change your OMS? Are you planning to change your OMS? Fewer are thinking about an OMS change, yet consolidation is still a key driver

26 responses What are the key factors in selecting an EMS? Customization and Integration are critical

Due in large part to a decrease in overall IT spend by hedge funds Estimated Hedge Fund IT Spending ($USD Millions / year) Scenario 3: Steep declines in the number of funds and IT spend among survivors Scenario 2: Across the board decline in hedge funds, and modest declines in IT spending Scenario 1: Current industry figures with modest declines in IT spending Pre-Crisis Spending Estimates

98% How much do you pay for your OMS? The cost of broker-independent technology remains high

2 Yr CAGR 43% 5 Yr CAGR -15% Average Number of EMSs Used Buy side traders are consolidating trading activities onto fewer platforms

Everyone must do more with less Hedge funds and asset managers will rationalize their application portfolios over the next year The buy side will look to access all broker provided trading tools through a single interface Counterparty risk concerns from the global financial crisis will leave some looking for alternatives to broker provided solutions Doing more with less continues to be the trend

In steps the open source trading system The idea of an open source OMS may prove a good alternative for those contemplating whether an internally developed system makes sense. Open source platforms are created by a community of developers and distributed for free. Providers make money from these platforms by charging fees for maintenance and support. A few years ago this idea seemed crazy for financial services, but in today’s cost conscious environment an open source OMS can provide just the right blend of buy vs. build for some buy side firms.
