Boston – Charles River Development announced it has partnered with OTAS Technologies and incorporated OTAS’s global equity trading analytics in the Charles River Investment Management Solution (Charles River IMS). The partnership makes OTAS’s trade analytics available as a separately licensed add-in to Charles River’s portfolio management workspace and combined order and execution management system (OEMS).
