BestX® Best Execution Pre-Trade Analytics
The BestX Pre-Trade software provides clients with the ability to analyse the costs of trading prior to execution. What-if analysis for a given trade is permitted using the proprietary BestX cost models, allowing a trade to be optimised in terms of timing, size of trade or method of execution. Netting analysis for a given currency pair is supported, allowing users to quantify the potential benefits of waiting to net or not by weighing up the opportunity cost vs spread cost for different periods of the trading day.
The BestX Post-Trade software provides a unique interface allowing market participants to analyse the costs and execution performance of their FX and Fixed Income transactions. FX product coverage includes Spot, Forward, Swaps & NDFs, and for Fixed Income we cover Sovereign and Corporate Bonds together with a wide array of Futures products. Our technology improves our Clients' execution process, resulting in a quantifiable cost savings, through utilization of the most rigorous and granular post-trade software analytics available in the market. We enable clients to conduct independent analysis and to implement a flexible, rigorous, justifiable and repeatable execution process in accordance with market and regulatory evolution.
