Equities Leaders Series

Broker/Buy Side Relations

In November 2019, The Finance Hive invited 50 senior and head traders from some of the largest and most recognisable asset managers in the UK for the The Finance Hive Equities: Technology for the Trading Desk.

This report lays out how the buy side are using technology to reduce their market impact, optimise their OMS/EMSs, create frameworks for onboarding and selecting new algos, and using pre-trade analytics and TCA.

Chapter 2: Broker/Buy Side Relations 

The second chapter in our series sees our buy side members discuss how relationships change as flows shift from high to low touch, and whether there is a resurgence in the opposite direction as people look to increase the number of trades executed through voice.


It was agreed that there has been a slide towards low touch trading, which is continuing in most places but has peaked in some others. As a result, one touch desks that incorporate high touch and low touch trading are popping up in a lot of broker firms.”
