Stock Turmoil Puts Focus on Execution, Trading Services Providers

Institutional Investor Launches New Survey to Determine Which Firms Excel at Meeting Traders' Needs

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Feb 8, 2016) - The market turmoil that arrived with the new year -- and just won't leave -- is underscoring the importance of working with a trading partner that can provide all of the services the buy side needs -- block liquidity, direct market access, risk management, and so on.

To find out which execution and trading services providers are held in highest regard by professional asset management firms, Institutional Investor has launched a new survey asking buy-side traders and related professionals to evaluate the firms they work with.

Eligible participants can access the ballot here:

Respondents are asked to rank the firms they use on the following attributes:

  • Algorithms
  • Access to unique liquidity
  • Analytics (pre- and post-trade, transaction cost analysis)
  • Block liquidity/counterparties
  • Connectivity across asset classes (credit, derivatives, foreign exchange)
  • Direct market access
  • Market knowledge/idea generation
  • Market structure analysis
  • Preventing information leakage
  • Price improvements
  • Responsiveness to buy-side needs and concerns
  • Risk management

In addition, they can cite up to four sales traders and four electronic-trading salespeople whom they feel have provided exceptional service.

Polling is scheduled to continue through February 19. Results will be published on in late March and in the April edition of Institutional Investor magazine.
