The TRADE launches 2022 EMS survey

Buy-side users of Execution Management Systems are invited to rate their vendors in the 2022 edition of The TRADE’s annual survey.

The TRADE’s annual Execution Management Systems (EMS) survey is now open for submissions, allowing buy-side users to assess and rate their vendors.

Now in its 10th year running, buy-side clients are invited to rate their EMS providers across 13 functional categories, alongside the chance to detail what additional capabilities they would like to see from vendors in the future.

The TRADE’s 2021 EMS survey, which analysed more than 460 evaluations across over 15 providers, highlighted a shift in industry focus away from concerns over connectivity with brokers and venues, towards product innovation and expansion, as well as increased demand from the buy-side for multi-asset trading capabilities.

Top performers in the 2021 survey were honoured at November’s Leaders in Trading, which saw FactSet’s Portware Enterprise pick up two awards; Best platform reliability and Best market access, while Neovest were awarded Best user experience and Virtu’s Triton won Best platform adaptability and Overall outperformer.

Outperformers in the survey will be recognised at The TRADE’s Leaders in Trading 2022 awards ceremony, which will take place at The Savoy hotel in London on 3 November.
