The TRADE launches the EMS Survey for 2023

Buy-side users of execution management systems are invited to rate their vendors in the 2023 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.

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 2022 EMS Survey, which analysed over 600 evaluations, revealed frustration from the buy-side regarding the progress they feel their EMS vendors have made toward enhancing the capabilities of their offerings. The results suggested vendors failed to keep pace throughout challenging market conditions, as they were ranked lower scores across all categories, with calls for greater product development and innovation in areas such as asset class coverage, execution efficiency and enhanced interoperability.

Top performers in the 2022 Survey were honoured at November’s Leaders in Trading, which saw Virtu’s Triton pick up two awards; Best Market Access and Best Platform Reliability, while TS Imagine was awarded Best Large-Cap Provider and FlexTrade won Best Overall EMS for Europe.

Outperformers in the survey will be recognised at The TRADE’s Leaders in Trading 2023 awards ceremony, which will take place at The Savoy hotel in London on 8 November.
