TORA’s OEM selection comes amid DMA Prime’s rapid expansion of its outsourced trading services in the region and the need for a scalable multi-asset global execution technology solution to meet growth .
Additionally, DMA Prime’s execution desk has selected TORA’s outsourced trading desk to complement its global market reach with TORA traders working in multiple trading areas to execute orders.
TORA’s OEM provides advanced tools for clients trading stocks, futures, options, bonds and currencies in a unified system. The system offers advanced trading features including order execution, order allocation management, automated broker order routing, pre-trade risk controls, real-time position management and P&L monitoring.

Justin Sage, Head of Institutional Trading at DMA Prime, comments: “In the context of a very competitive landscape, the TORA OEM was the perfect choice for us. We really needed a global execution system that enabled fast one-click transactions and the ability to seamlessly connect to our proprietary wallet technology and existing liquidity providers.

Institutional investors in South Africa demand cutting-edge technology and high service levels, and we are confident that TORA will stay ahead of the curve with extensive in-house development capability and business expertise to complement our in-house teams.
