MAX Fund Trade

Fund Trading Efficient and Electronic

MAX Fund Trade is a functionality of our order management system MAX.

This service allows the placing and trading of individual Investment funds orders. Due to the high degree of Straight Through Processing (STP), the placements and trading can be partially or fully automated.

Pooling and monitoring of the cut-off times helps to simplify the complex processing of investment fund orders. In addition, this trading module offers:

  • full processing of switches,
  • splitting of pool orders,
  • monitoring of trading prices based on the reference price
  • and other special investment fund workflows.

MAX Fund Trade offers the placement of orders through SWIFT, FIX, File, FAX or manually. Connections to other interfaces can be also implemented.

MACD Broker Program

Our fund brokers Allfunds, Credit Suisse, ifsam, SIX Global Fund Service and Zürcher Kantonalbank participate in the MACD Broker Program.

What does that mean? You as a customer can save costs!

Because these MACD brokers take over a not insignificant part of the annual fees, which means lower costs for MACD customers. Smaller changes on the part of the broker are implemented by us without cost consequences (e.g. Algo parameters, FIX tag changes etc.).

Individual Connection

An individual connection to your bank and order management system is possible. We support various interfaces, e.g. Avaloq, Finnova, Apsys oder Finstar.

  • Thanks to the close cooperation with MACD, we were able to successfully launch the new Schroders Funds Trading Platform with additional functionality and extensive changes to the business process. I particularly liked the fact that MACD always pulled together with us, so that we were able to approach and solve the particular challenges of this project in a very targeted manner.

  • The MAX Order Management System for fund trading provides us with a higher degree of automation (straight through processing), generates a better overview of our fund orders and optimises scalability in our business area.

    Tenzin Sewo, Deputy Head Fund Execution, Schroders

  • Thanks to the great and uncomplicated cooperation with MACD, we were able to implement four projects in 2022 (broker and stock exchange connections, fund trading, and change to MAX) in a very short time. These automations have considerably simplified our processes. We are very satisfied with the new MAX trading system and look forward to continuously developing MAX together with MACD.
