Move brings block trades to InfoReach TMS users

NEW YORK, October 07, 2005 — Users of the popular InfoReach Trade Management System (InfoReach TMS, now have one more feature at their fingertips: Block trades. Leading portfolio trading technology provider InfoReach, Inc. has just integrated Pipeline Trading Systems’ alternative trading system (ATS) into InfoReach TMS.

Launched two years ago, Pipeline’s ATS allows users to anonymously trade large blocks of NYSE and NASDAQ stocks, as well as Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), in single transactions. The service further enhances the InfoReach TMS Suite, which integrates buy- and sell-side functionality for manual and algorithmic basket trading of equities, futures, options and FX in a broker-neutral platform.

Block trade capability was the logical next step for InfoReach TMS, said InfoReach president Allen Zaydlin. “It augments traditional slice-and-dice approach of common execution algorithms with ability to algorithmically trade reserve quantities as blocks.” said Zaydlin. “The integration of Pipeline ATS into InfoReach TMS gives our clients more choices on how they can work large orders”
