Omniex’s solution is also the ideal solution for active traders to access the crypto-asset market in a low-latency and high-performance manner.
The platform offers a complete portfolio and order management system, Omniex Portfolio-Edge, allowing fund managers to track portfolio positions and valuations from a single interface while analyzing portfolio risk. At the heart of Omniex’s solution is an execution management system (EMS), Omniex Execution-Plus, that connects to multiple liquidity venues for direct market access (DMA) or algorithmic execution to achieve best execution. Back-office activities become more streamlined via Omniex Settlement-Center.
Omniex’s platform is a SaaS application that can be accessed using a Graphical User Interface (GUI) with any modern web browser. The core Order Management System (OMS) can be accessed via REST API or real-time FIX API. The EMS system can also be accessed directly via the real-time FIX API and additionally via high-performance binary APIs over time.
