Imagine Software, the leading provider of real-time portfolio management, risk and regulatory solutions for financial firms worldwide, today announced a strategic partnership with Omgeo – a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) and the global standard for institutional post-trade efficiency. The collaboration will deliver seamless integration between Imagine’s real-time portfolio and risk management capabilities and Omgeo’s post-trade solution for equities, equity derivatives, fixed income, bonds and REPO.
Clients using this interface will be able to efficiently manage risk in real-time, while smoothly executing post-trade operations across asset classes and geographies in an automated, straight-through-processing environment.
