FlexTRADER is a customizable execution management system (EMS) with pre-defined trading strategies and tactics for portfolio and single stock trading across all asset classes. Global investment managers prefer the solution since the consolidation of equities, FX, listed options, futures, or any combination is essential on the same platform in order to ensure smooth functioning.
