BTON FINANCIAL PARTNERS WITH GENESIS TO AUTOMATE TRADING FOR ASSET MANAGERS

FINANCIAL

BTON Financial, the independent outsourced dealing desk for asset managers and genesis, the Low Code Application Platform for Capital Markets, are pleased to announce their partnership to automate trading workflows, which in turn drives greater trading performance.  The partnership helps drive front office transformation, bringing together genesis’ ability for agile software development and BTON Financial’s independent technology and data driven approach to outsourced dealing in the form of their award winning ‘Smart Broker Router’.

Following a competitive due diligence process, covering both vendors and consultancies, BTON Financial selected genesis as their technology partner because of their deep market expertise and Low Code Application Platform built specifically for capital markets. By using the genesis Low Code Application Platform, BTON are able to create solutions quickly without having to write substantial lines of code, making the development and deployment of these solutions much faster, simpler and much easier to support. 

With BTON Financial, asset managers are able to maintain a significant  edge over their peers, implement trading strategies effectively, ensuring that investment intentions are not undermined by poor execution quality as a result of inadequate legacy technology. 

BTON Financial’s award winning, proprietary Smart Broker Router, built on the genesis Low Code Application Platform, supports asset managers in taking advantage of the emerging liquidity and execution opportunities. The Smart Broker Router improves trading performance automatically by selecting the most appropriate broker with the most appropriate execution algorithm, while at the same time ensuring full regulatory compliance. 

The BTON Smart Broker Router is fully integrated with the other genesis trading solutions built on the platform, allowing orders to flow securely from the Smart Broker Router through to the receiving broker and into the trading workflow – all in real-time.

Commenting on the collaboration, James Harrison, Chief Operating Officer of genesis, said: “We are very excited to partner with BTON Financial. The machine learning driven Smart Broker Router is unique to the market and has been built using the genesis Low Code Application Platform. This powerful combination has allowed us to maximise the very latest in technology to fully optimise an asset managers’ trading performance while minimising costs.  We look forward to a long-lasting relationship”.

Dan Shepherd, CEO of BTON Financial, said: “We’re delighted to partner with genesis for the benefit of the asset management industry. By harnessing the genesis low code platform and its modular & agile development approach we can respond and adapt to market developments at speed. This is in stark contrast to legacy systems that often require whole platforms to be re-engineered. We very much look forward to continuing our collaboration with genesis and bringing new, innovative solutions to the asset management industry.”

Dan Shepherd concluded: “The FinTech ecosystem is now becoming more essential in helping firms manage their business continuity plans by automating more procedures, which is where our collaboration with  genesis will bring immediate benefits in the current climate. “

RETAILERS WHO OPEN THEIR DOORS WILL NEED EXTRA HELP

With thousands of retail stores given the green light to open in the next few weeks the government needs to think

of helpful tax breaks and further assistance, say leading tax and advisory for Blick Rothenberg.

“The problem is that many retailers are already on their knees having had no income for some three months now they will have to spend money that they don’t have on making sure that both staff and shoppers are safe when they re-open their doors,” said Richard Churchill a business advisory partner at the firm.

He added: The Government have already done a great deal for business and are encouraging shops to open to give that much needed kick start to the economy but for many it’s going to be another expense and they are going to have try and find the money for things like screens, protective equipment and extra security to police the measures they introduce.

“With the June rental payment looming it is clear the bounce back loan scheme may provide insufficient funding for all these additional costs.”

Richard said: “ The Government should consider a one-off grant or voucher system specifically for the purchase of equipment or modifications to shops designed to mitigate the risk of Covid-19 spreading and to observe social distancing guidance. “

He added:” Alternatively expenditure on such equipment could be subject to enhanced tax relief to give greater benefit for such expenditure and in a similar way to Research and Development expenditure consideration as to whether losses generated through this expenditure can be surrendered to HMRC for a cash receipt.”

“Also businesses that have overlooked CBILs in favour of Bounce Back loans and now require additional funding will be excluded from the CBILs scheme and consideration should be given to allowing such companies in receipt of a bounce back loan to also be eligible for a CBILs loan.”
