Behind the scenes, Trade-Zoom employs robust technology that enables you to slice and dice your data in almost any way imaginable.


The Manager Styles feature is an alpha profiler that breaks out data by portfolio manager.  You can see the specific approaches that each PM took throughout a trade life cycle, illuminating the rationale for buying a stock, price confirmation process, venue choices and numerous other trade elements.  Armed with this information, you can make informed, alpha-producing execution decisions.


Common questions Trade-Zoom will enable you to easily answer include:

  • How much did the price move while you were in the market?
  • How did you trade versus the market?
  • How did you trade based on price-volume considerations?
  • How did a portfolio manager's style affect your trading costs?


Trade-Zoom is one of the industry's most valuable best-execution tools.

Trade Zoom for Fixed Income


Many people in the fixed income world caution others about applying equity-based TCA models to fixed income trading.  And there’s a lot of truth in that.  However, it’s equally important to recognize that there are some very important commonalities.  And much of the equity TCA experience is, in fact, very relevant to fixed income trading.  For example, consider the following common ground between equities and fixed income oversight:


  • The need to consider the intent of the PM
  • Decisions about whether it is a high touch or low touch trade
  • Importance of monitoring execution quality
  • Need for a strong governance regime to supplement quantitative reports


In short, best execution is a process and TCA is a component of that process.  More than any other analytics company, Abel Noser has the experience, ability and next-gen technology to provide the measurement you need to preserve alpha while maintaining a robust compliance program.  Here are some characteristics of our fixed income TCA solution:


  • Coverage includes US Treasuries, global corporate and sovereign bonds, US mortgage backed securities, European mortgage and ABS, consumer ABS, municipal bonds, bank loans and credit default swaps
  • Costs are calculated in multiple units including price, aggregate dollar amount, and BPS of market value traded
