Capula Investment Management is a multi-billion dollar hedge fund which used computer systems to find profitable patterns within financial data and execute buy and sell orders. Their existing system did not support complex trading patterns such as short sell orders, LIMIT and TWAP, and was unable to allow cancellations, fills or terminations. WHISHWORKS proposed a centralised, order routing system and dashboard to improve and enhance order flow for the business, as well a unified mechanism for implementing a SWIFT communication system.
Due to the requirements of different brokers, the FIX protocol could be used to enabled communication, with XML based message transformation being used to link the protocol to a new .net based solution.
