Equities Leaders Series

Pre-Trade Analytics

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.

Chapter 1: Pre-Trade Analytics

The first chapter in the series focuses on the buy side’s use of pre-trade analytics systems and tools.

It provides a summary of the discussions and Alistair Clark, European Equity Trader at Capital Group, shares his opinion on how more buy side firms are able to develop and utilise pre-trade systems.


On our table, bespoke offerings were preferred over broader off-the-shelf systems, with a further aim of the desktop UX being bespoke to each trader within the firms bespoke system.”
