thinkFolio: Order Management and Portfolio Modeling

Reduce operational risk with a cross-asset investment management platform

thinkFolio is an enterprise-class order management (OMS) and portfolio modeling system (PMS). Customers can implement the system as a single, integrated investment management platform to support their entire front office, or deploy it tactically for cash management and FX, fixed income modeling or loans.

Solutions

Front-Office Workflows Supported

  • Portfolio modeling – From benchmark comparisons and portfolio targeting to modeling the impact of early bond repayments, changes in equity yields, currency fluctuations and interest-rate shocks
  • Trading – A transparent real-time workflow between traders and fund managers with an open, vendor-neutral approach and broad connectivity to EMS systems, trading networks and venues
  • Cash and FX management – A sophisticated cash ladder covering multiple asset classes and currencies, enabling fund managers to view future cash amounts across accounts, including redemptions, unsettled trades and other cash flows
  • Compliance – An integrated compliance engine that enables firms to perform both pre-trade checks and post-trade analysis to ensure adherence to client guidelines, regulatory requirements and in-house mandates

Key benefits:

  • Detailed investment analysis – Monitor all factors that influence investment returns by focusing on individual cash flows and modeling the impact of different scenarios
  • Efficient workflows – Streamline investment workflows and allow portfolio managers, traders and compliance teams to work together, ensuring key decision-makers are aligned

Case Study: BMO Global Asset Management - System Rationalization

Organic growth and a series of mergers and acquisitions had resulted in the use of multiple, duplicative systems at BMO Global Asset Management. The cost and complexity of the resulting operating model were substantial and needed to be reduced.

BMO wanted to provide updated front-office capabilities to its investment desk, dealers and mandate compliance team. There was also a desire to create a top-down view of the business.

thinkFolio was implemented as a single, cross-asset-class system to support modelling, order generation, order management, trade execution and compliance. thinkFolio was chosen because of its flexibility and scalability, which allow firms to deploy the platform in multiple locations and build upon it in the future.
