Charles River OEMS
View our Trader DatasheetContact Us for a Demo

Charles River IMS combines an order management system (OMS) with multi- asset execution capabilities, creating a consolidated order and execution management system (OEMS). The OEMS enables traders to work more productively targeting orders requiring high touch interaction, managing trade risk, and demonstrating best execution. Full trade lifecycle support, integrated compliance and workflow automation enables clients to manage the largest and most complex institutional portfolios on a single platform.

The OEMS eliminates the multiple interfaces, fragmented workflows, and order staging problems inherent in utilizing separate order and execution management platforms. Traders no longer have to switch between systems or re-key critical information, helping save time and reduce errors. Benefits beyond the trading desk include improved compliance and auditing, reduced operational risk, and simpler infrastructure.


• Combined OMS and EMS that supports the full trading lifecycle
• Manage list and portfolio execution strategies
• Monitor compliance throughout the trade lifecycle
• Ability to create and visualize broker/ counterparty eligibility checks in an integrated fashion
• Monitor real-time market, order, and analytic data
• Capture trade and order data required for regulatory reporting
• Quickly organize orders with spreadsheet-like filtering, grouping and sorting
• Flexible and interoperable with open APIS and configurable FIX integrations
