FlexTrade Systems today announced a new offering for traders of public equity to plan, manage, and execute equity offerings via their new issue management system, FlexNIMS.
By leveraging this all-in-one solution, global buy-side firms can reduce the time and risk involved with the new issue management process for IPOs, Follow-Ons, and Block Trades by managing the process from the deal evaluation phase, internal interest aggregation and approvals, to compliance checking, and customized individual allocations on deal day.

Vijay Kedia, President and CEO at FlexTrade stated:
“We are pleased to launch FlexNIMS, the only product of its kind that is seamlessly integrated with a multi-asset EMS, multiple OMS solutions and provides end-to-end automation of Primary Market workflow while reducing risk and connecting all parties in the pre-IPO process.
FlexNIMS enables buy-side firms to capture PM interest in equity offerings, aggregate interest across the firm, automate compliance checks, allocation and finally book the trades in their OMSs. The power in this tool derives from the close working relationship and deep insight from our client, Neuberger Berman, and demonstrates our commitment to innovation.”
