Bloomberg’s multi-asset, broker-neutral solutions provide decision support, liquidity discovery, order analytics and performance assessment in the global equity, futures and options markets.
Bloomberg’s execution management solutions include the Execution Management System (EMSX) with integrated real-time analytics, Indications of Interest (IOIs) and Trade Advertisements, and Transaction Cost Analytics (BTCA).
By integrating Bloomberg’s market data and content with real-time and historical trade data, we can provide trade analytics that are integrated into your workflow. Use pre-trade tools to identify and address outlying orders that need attention. Then rely on BTCA for post-trade analytics and reports that help assess transaction costs and optimize trading performance.
By combining historical trade information with our library of TCA benchmarks and market data archives, BTCA helps ensure comprehensive and accurate reporting. With BTCA, you can:
- Analyze the moment of execution to see why a strategy or venue was used
- Assess trader and broker performance quickly
- Identify top-performing trades, teams, regions and algorithms
- Compare liquidity providers
- Determine whether natural liquidity was available and used appropriately
- Pinpoint outliers
- Demonstrate best execution to clients
