Wedbush picks HelixRepo for fixed income
Wedbush Securities has chosen Helix Financial Systems to manage the processing of its fixed income repo portfolio.

The HelixRepo platform provides buy- and sell-side clients with the tools to support their repo and financing activities, such as real-time collateral management, across all products and asset classes.

Scott Skrym, managing director of fixed income financing, futures, and rates at Wedbush, praised the platform, saying: “Helix made our repo business more efficient and helped manage the risks better. The ease of trade processing saves us incredible amounts of time each day.”

“The built-in risk management features are far better for monitoring trading positions, counterparty exposure, and interest rate risk than any other system I have ever used.”

Helix head Todd Berlent added: “We're extremely pleased to add Wedbush to the growing roster of financial firms using HelixRepo across their various lines of business.”

“Signing these firms on to our systems substantiates Helix's ability to meet the growing demands of the buy-side community to solve problems that are no longer unique to the more traditional sell-side firms.”
