Since its inception in 1987, MBA has been an innovator in systems for the securities industry. This has ranged from the development of the fastest price information systems available and the production of award-winning internet-based stockbroking systems to transaction systems for equities, fixed income, collectives and derivative instruments.
Most recent systems connect investment managers to independent financial advisors to clients, enable portfolio management, aggregate order placements and facilitate communication using the FIX protocol.
Today MBA continues to develop bespoke systems for its clients built on tried and tested software elements from its extensive range of products. Its products focus on STP, the automation of the broking process (including “best execution” criteria) and the distribution of client information. Whether orders are captured directly from clients via its internet trading systems or within an organization across its sophisticated rule-driven order routing networks, MBA is committed to providing its customers with technology which widens their market access, reduces their operational costs and minimizes errors and risk.
In addition MBA operates a secure data centre with 24 hour support which can host, manage and operate applications on behalf of clients. A further disaster recovery location ensures business continuity.
MBA’s twenty years of experience in the securities industry and its unique combination of financial sector understanding and technical expertise is a premium asset to its growing blue chip customer base of banks, investment managers and brokers.
In recognition of the quality of MBA’s products and services, the company has received key awards at the Securities Industry Software Awards for six consecutive years. The awards are prestigious acclamations amongst suppliers of systems to the securities industry.
