"This fresh collaboration between our two firms sets a new benchmark in the European market, by taking advantage of rigorous quantitative methods to design and implement algorithms, using inputs based on statistical micro-structure models and feedback loops based on measuring and optimising performance. This coupled with working with an independent brokerage organisation provides a new direction in how firms should deal with trading performance measurement and review. Neonet, as early adopters of the LiquidMetrix platform, fully recognise us as a reliable and trusted third party provider to review execution quality." says SabineToulson, Co-Founder and Managing Director, at IFS LiquidMetrix.
"LiquidMetrix believes this initiative is a natural expansion of our activities in the TCA world." continues Sabine. "We have always believed that the true purpose of TCA is not just to provide assurance of reasonable execution, but to become a means for improving trading performance. We are excited to be working with Neonet to put this into practice and to create a new breed of self-optimising algorithms, with performance measurement central to their design."
"We are excited at the prospect this offers for us to assist our clients in achieving true best execution amidst a more complex European trading landscape," says Massimiliano Raposio, Head of Sales at Neonet Securities. "It is a unique opportunity for us to bring unconflicted agency execution and best-of-breed independent quantitative capabilities to new and existing algorithmic trading clients."
