LONDON, UK – November 28, 2018 – Watson Wheatley, the premier provider of reconciliation solutions and Orchestrade, the most modern front-to-back trading and risk management platform, today announced the integration of the iRecs reconciliation solution with the Orchestrade core portfolio management and risk system.

Watson Wheatley’s growing client base will derive many benefits from the connection including robust data delivery, standardised support and faster onboarding. Tom Wheatley, COO at Watson Wheatley, commented: “Alternative asset managers, especially those with complex requirements, have found it hard to find a provider that offers the complete cross-asset front-to-back office functionality they require coupled with excellent customer service. We believe Orchestrade fills this gap, and this is our reason for partnering with them. Orchestrade clients can now leverage the best practice approach of iRecs thanks to the connectivity between the two systems.”
