The Tradetech Daily



Via its Enterprise solution, Portware offers a full suite of pre- and post-trade TCA tools and services, allowing users to compare execution results by model, broker, destination, sector, trader, portfolio manager or any other grouping criteria against pre-defined benchmarks in real-time. The firm has also integrated with numerous pre- and post-trade TCA services from brokers and independent analytics providers. Portware users can view and act on all of these services directly within Portware Enterprise’s trading blotters. All transaction data within Portware’s trading blotters is captured for analysis, and includes all relevant data points and execution information at both the portfolio and single-stock level. Portware’s new FX TCA and post trade analytics package, FX Liquidity Monitor, enables clients to benchmark their strategy’s performance and the performance of their liquidity providers against any number of absolute or calculated data points.
