AlphaDesk Announces Partnership with UnaVista

31 October 2017

AlphaDesk, the cloud-based Order Management and Portfolio Management System provider to hedge funds and other investment managers, has become a partner of UnaVista to provide MiFID 2 compliant transaction reporting.

Wendy Collins, MD, Global Strategic Partnerships at UnaVista, commented "We are delighted to be partnering with AlphaDesk to help their clients fully prepare for and comply with MiFID II transaction reporting. UnaVista's wealth of regulatory reporting experience will be key in helping their clients reduce regulatory and operational risk.

Joe Hurley, COO of Garraway Capital Management LLP, adds "Migrating to AlphaDesk this year has helped us manage our operating expenses, whilst improving STP and assisting in our preparation for the additional regulatory obligations associated with MiFID 2 compliance." Kevin Galliers, AlphaDesk's COO, says "The cost savings enabled through a public-cloud-based OMS/PMS can be directly allocated to the financial demands of regulation on the buy-side, and this is becoming more and more apparent as the January dead-line approaches."
