The requirements and processes for building a robust order management system (OMS) for trading of investments within financial services firms are investigated and enumerated. Requirements and process documentation are not readily available to members of the general public because they are considered a source of competitive advantage in a highly profitable industry. This paper provides single source documentation of those requirements and processes in the context of the Vested OMS application, which was constructed specifically to meet industry needs in this area. This paper describes in detail the core functionality investment businesses currently demand and the software development techniques used to construct a core system to meet those demands.
