The Tradetech Daily



Fidessa's TCA provides a post-trade solution that combines consulting services and high performance technology. It is broker-neutral and provides independent analysis. The TCA solution is fully integrated in Fidessa's trading platform and provides comprehensive pre-defined and customer configurable reports. Performance and slippage can be measured by grouping transactions into various breakdowns including, but not limited to, portfolio manager, trading desk, broker, and execution venue, allowing clients to compare broker algorithms, among other usages. The dynamic solution allows clients to create their own output, slice their data and display it graphically. Fidessa's TCA reports can be tailored for the needs of different users whether it is management, trading desk or compliance department.
