Match Analysis Puts the Focus on Execution Quality

Brokers and asset managers alike must provide best execution to their clients, and a big part of best execution is transparency – in process, practice and performance. In fast-moving markets, there are ample opportunities for mistakes to occur, no matter how skilled the trading desk. During post-trade processing, when buyers and sellers match the details of orders, change the record of ownership and make/accept payment for securities, quality execution ensures that these tasks are carried out efficiently, accurately and transparently.
