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.
It also shines a spotlight on how technology is driving the reinvention of the buy side trader, and affecting the relationship between the buy side and their brokers.
