The Order Execution & Position Management Systems (OEPMS) Tradedesk is the first line of defence and first line of offense. OEPMS Tradedesk Analysts are the domain and subject matter experts. We deliver a knowledgeable, and proactive service to Bloomberg clients and provide valuable insights that drive the business forward. We’re aligned to our industry leading Buy- and Sell-Side order management solutions (AIM, TOMS and SSEOMS) that deliver global order, execution and position management tools for front-office professionals as well as middle and back office operations. Bloomberg clients rely on the service our Tradedesk Analysts provide to operate effectively.

Fund managers, sales-traders, compliance officers and middle office managers face the challenge of doing their job in the most efficient way possible. They need solutions that help them trade securities, attain best execution, manage their risk, compliance and straight-through processing. Bloomberg’s Buy- and Sell-side order, execution and position management systems are designed to meet and exceed these needs.
