Institutional Brokers

Institutional brokers can benefit from significant cost efficiencies by outsourcing some or all of their back office operations to Platform Securities. Platform Securities is a market-proven provider with vast experience of operating and managing mission-critical business processes for institutional brokers.

Platform Securities solutions are powered by the FIGARO platform, an integrated, functionally rich, real-time platform to support the needs of front, middle and back office operations.  Client details can be incepted via multiple channels, automatically executed in multiple markets and contracted in real-time, with the minimum of human intervention.

Platform Securities outsourced services offer high levels of STP for international trading, settlement and custody.  Leveraging FIGARO provides a single, fully integrated platform with functionality that includes: order capture and routing workflow with direct execution against multiple UK RSPs and a two-way interface to SETS.
