The rundown

Broker choices and trading strategies couldn't keep up with changing market conditions. Additionally, internal systems couldn't handle the volume, velocity, and variety of data. The company believed that even if they found a BI tool that could, that tool wouldn't integrate into their existing plant. The best way to reduce slippage was to have a tool to perform ad hoc analysis and modify trading strategies in real-time. This analysis would require crossing this information with their proprietary data streams and market data streams.

The AMI difference

AMI integrated with their system by ingesting drop copies of in-house orders and executions. After developing an in-house TCA tool using AMI, they can better monitor and finesse trades, decipher market reaction to specific traders, assess outliers in broker data, and has more control in order routing and venue choice. Traders can see alerts and modify orders, algorithm parameters, or several other parameters. In real-time, the trading activity can be sorted, filtered, and prioritized. Users see basket level summaries - with instant drill-downs - to see slippage, trade details, and other key metrics to facilitate quick decisions.
