Our EMS presents traders with the tools to view orders staged from an OMS, monitor live market data, run analytics, route orders to the market, receive fill information and initiate post-trade services to facilitate straight-through-processing. Coupled with pre-trade decision-making tools, TCA, alerting, integrated compliance rules and post trade services, Bloomberg EMS provides traders with a powerful end-to-end solution.

The business looks at critical workflows, which include the staging of orders into our EMS, the provision of information discovery to a trader to improve their trading experience, the enrichment of execution styles/workflows available to the trader and the processing of transactions once a trade is complete.
