Charles River Investment Management Solution (Charles River IMS) supports the entire equity investment process, from portfolio construction and risk analysis to position management and post-trade processing. Charles River’s combined order and execution management system (OEMS) eliminates the need for separate execution management systems, which helps traders work more productively.
