You can use LUSID to action and/or record the order lifecycle, from order inception to execution and allocation. LUSID's flexible order management system (OMS) enables every job function involved in the order lifecycle to improve efficiency and compliance in the way that best suits you.

You can choose to use all of LUSID's OMS capabilities, or tailor the features to fit your needs. For example, as a Portfolio Manager, you can: 

  • Use LUSID's portfolio rebalancing capabilities to generate new orders for some instruments.
  • Run pre-trade compliance on your orders and notify a Trader that these orders can be picked up.
  • Once a trade has been executed, allocate fills to portfolios using allocation algorithms.
