Nomura, a Japan-based investment bank, has launched a new execution consulting service within its Asia-Pacific electronic trading division, providing institutional clients with bespoke analysis to enhance their trading strategies.
The new solution will use Nomura's transaction cost analysis (TCA) suite of tools to offer tailored research and platform consulting to help clients develop trading strategies to achieve best execution. It also incorporates trading and market structure research, order and execution management consulting and quantitative consulting services.
“Utilising our market knowledge and insight, we can work with clients to help understand the implications that market structure trends have on a portfolio, identify algorithms and time horizons that best suit specific objectives, and undertake analysis on key events in Asia and globally,” said Robert Laible, Nomura's global co-head of electronic trading and QPS sales and head of program trading sales, Asia-Pacific. “Our service is about ideas generation and in-depth analysis that is highly customised for clients in order for them to best navigate the trading environment in which they operate.”
“The solutions that we provide to our clients go beyond the traditional static reporting mode with child-order level real-time TCA, ‘what-if’ post-trade scenario analysis and trading simulation capabilities, all powered by a solid quant analytics infrastructure developed by Nomura,” added Dr Hongsong Chou, head of Asia-Pacific quantitative analytics and algorithms at Nomura.
