Chicago, IL - 3 October 2011

SunGard is collaborating BlazePortfolio Systems to provide real-time electronic executions and allocations through SunGard Global Network (SGN) Securities using BlazePortfolio’s Atom Align OMS platform. ATOM ALIGN is a multi-custodian, web-based modeling and trade order management solution for investment advisers, wealth management, trusts, broker-dealers and multi-family office clients. Through SGN Securities, Atom Align clients can streamline their trading process while helping improve execution quality and transparency. SGN Securities, an order routing network for equities, fixed income and options, provides access to 130+ markets worldwide, connecting over 2,000 asset managers and 500 brokers through 30 international hubs.

“Connectivity with SGN Securities helps our clients automate their trading process,” said BlazePortfolio president Bryson Pouw. “Our clients are continually challenged to maximize efficiency and an end-to-end solution can help them save valuable time.”

“We are committed to helping customers increase operational efficiencies throughout the entire trade lifecycle” said Raj Mahajan president of SunGard’s global trading business. “SGN Securities and BlazePortfolio’s integration helps our customers meet data requirements with added FIX connectivity in one seamless offering.”

The collaboration helps automate manual inputs currently required by investment advisers and eliminates the process of phoning, faxing or manually uploading trade files to custodians. Trading messages can be communicated using a site-to-site secure tunnel between the ATOM ALIGN Cloud Platform and SGN Securities. Using the ATOM ALIGN FIX service to electronically route trades through SGN Securities, can help advisors increase focus on their client business.
