SGSS launches dealing desk outsourcing service

SGSS has launched I-DEAL, a new dealing desk outsourcing service for asset (discretionary and collective) and investment managers which covers the entire range of asset classes and global markets.

In an increasingly competitive and complex environment, managers are searching for ways to simplify and optimise their trade executions. I-DEAL is an integrated outsourcing service designed to meet that need and is supported by a team of dedicated and experienced experts in contact with over 70 counterparties worldwide.

Fully compliant with regulatory requirements, the service covers the entire trading value chain:

  • Order placement
  • Order-routing and execution
  • Dedicated reporting services (operational, regulatory, client …)
  • Market middle office services

In addition, I-DEAL integrates seamlessly with SGSS’ overall post-trade offering which includes custody services, depositary control, fund administration and asset servicing, as well as middle and back office services for derivatives.

Built on a dedicated platform with leading infrastructure technology for best execution, I-DEAL guarantees a quality service for all its clients, each of whom benefits from a dedicated and personalised environment. These services allow managers to rationalise and optimise their trading activities with best execution and associated reporting processes, as well as reduce their operational risk with straight-through-processing.

“I-DEAL replaces clients’ needs to adapt their organisations and resources to meet challenges that are not core to their business activities,” comments Léonard Ollier, Head of Business development – I-DEAL, SGSS. “This new service enables asset managers to gain both in agility and efficiency while meeting a triple-need of maintaining ties with the market, monitoring and improving trade execution and ensuring optimal management of their investment strategies.”
