We perform all daily operational functions including:
System (OMS / PMS)
We provide access to the Brooklands licence for the Order Management System (OMS) and Portfolio Management System (PMS).
The order management system allows clients to trade electronically with incorporated pre and post trade compliance checks. The OMS can be connected to the different trading counterparties.
The portfolio management system provides a live view of the positions. It is fully integrated with the fund’s core counterparties (custodians, prime brokers and administrator) and increases efficiency in reconciliation, settlement and monitoring.
We believe portfolio managers are the most effective tool in managing investment risk.
Brooklands supports portfolio managers in defining risk limits, creating the risk framework and drafting the risk policy.
Brooklands provides an additional layer of risk management through our daily risk oversight and monthly risk committee.
We implement pre-trade risk limits in the PMS to ensure trades are within risk parameters and prevent "fat finger" mistakes.
We monitor and report risk limits on a daily basis.
We work with our clients to develop the risk framework on an ongoing basis ensuring limits are fit for purpose.
