The TRADE launches the Algorithmic Trading Survey for 2022

Buy-side respondents have until 21 February to rate algo providers, with high performers due to be recognised as part of Leaders in Trading in late 2022.

Institutional investors, asset managers and hedge funds are invited to rate the features and capabilities of their algo providers in The TRADE’s 2022 Algorithmic Trading Survey.

Now in its 15th year, The TRADE’s 2022 Algorithmic Trading Survey will be live for buy-side participation until 21 February, with ‘Long-only’ and ‘Hedge fund’ results due to be included in the Spring and Summer issues of The TRADE magazine, respectively. We encourage algorithmic trading providers to support client participation.

Last year the Survey received a record number of 1,468 ratings, across over 30 providers of algorithmic trading, yielding thousands of data points for analysis. The results highlighted that the percentage of funds trading via algorithms continues to rise, with traders opting for tried and tested strategies like volume-weighted average price (VWAP) during market uncertainty, as well as price improvement strategies, such as dark or alternative liquidity seeking algos. Whilst overall scores were high, both long-only and hedge fund managers called for improvements in key areas such as price improvement, execution consulting and customisation.

The Algorithmic Trading Survey is aimed at buy-side traders across all asset classes and regions. This year the Survey includes additional questions, to monitor the continued increase in the electronification of non-equity markets.
