TradingScreen Inc., a provider of liquidity, trading and investment technology via software-as-a-service (SaaS), and MainstreamBPO Pty Ltd., an Australian fund administrator, have signed a partnership agreement to connect their systems in order to provide their common clients with front-to-back fund servicing.
TradingScreen’s TradePrime, its execution, order and portfolio management offering, will be integrated with FundBPO, MainstreamBPO’s platform, and deployed to Asia Pacific asset managers. This will allow asset managers to outsource their entire trade management process–execution, compliance, risk, reconciliation and reporting–to the two partners.

This partnership agreement has already been endorsed by our clients in Asia. It allows them to concentrate on trading and avoid lengthy and costly implementation,” says Nathan Walker, head of sales for South East Asia and Australia at TradingScreen Inc.
