Lincoln Indicators choose Iress for expansion into international funds
Iress today announced Lincoln Indicators had chosen Iress to support its expansion into international funds. The fund manager launched a new US growth fund in July, and has partnered with Iress to provide the technical infrastructure for international trading.
When seeking software and support to trade internationally, Lincoln backed Iress’ expertise to guide it through the process. Iress’ Execution Management System leverages Iress’ Order System to enable an end-to-end trading solution for managing international orders and executions. Lincoln is connected to multiple international trading parties via the Iress network with additional connectivity to a post-trade service for matching and settlement. The solution is fully integrated with Iress market data, including live US markets pricing.
Lincoln Indicators’ co-founder and chief investment officer, Tim Lincoln, said, “We saw a significant opportunity to adapt our proven quantitative models for the US market, however we needed the process to be as simple as managing Australian funds. The solution we have in place enables us to seamlessly and painlessly trade internationally.
“We have had a great experience working with Iress to get the right software and systems in place to make this a success. The level of support has been incredible, involving a number of late nights and early mornings to sync with the US trading day. It couldn’t have been easier.”
Iress’ managing director of financial markets for Australia and New Zealand, Kirsty Gross, said, “We’re excited to partner with Lincoln Indicators to help them expand into new markets and territories. The ability to retain the trusted Iress market data and trading ecosystem, while expanding into US trading, provides Lincoln with a distinct competitive advantage in maintaining quality and simplicity across all aspects of the investment management process.”
