Optimised Trading

In today's highly competitive world, buy-side firms have become far more discerning about their choice of sell-side brokers. Consequently, those brokers that are able to clearly demonstrate their value and expertise will be the clear winners in the marketplace.

Fidessa’s Optimised Trading initiative is designed to empower brokers, and in particular the ‘super sales trader’ of today, with the tools they need to demonstrate real value and relevance to their clients. Fully integrated within the Fidessa OMS, these tools deepen the discussions and communications that brokers can have with their clients, and so improve the level of customer service that they are able to deliver.

Order Performance Monitor

Fidessa’s Order Performance Monitor (OPM) allows users to monitor all live orders simultaneously and identify any outliers in real time. OPM looks across a multitude of order parameters and serves as a real-time early warning system for any orders that look set to underperform. OPM then uses a proprietary scoring methodology that is specifically designed to identify outliers. Traders can use these scores to set thresholds that trigger alerts, so allowing them to take remedial action where necessary, in collaboration with their client, in order to achieve their stated objectives.
