Trade Informatics wrote a new blog post titled The new buy side toolkit
From broker and algo wheels to alpha profiling and scorecards, best execution is changing rapidly and traders are enthused by the opportunities ahead Amidst rising costs, squeezed profit margins and onerous regulations, it might not seem the ideal time to be a buy-side trader, but in fact there may never have been a better time.
