Transaction Cost Analysis for modern markets

MiFID II implemented far stricter best execution policies for investment managers, regulatory compliance professionals and traders. These entities are now legally obliged to take “all sufficient steps” to ensure the best execution of clients’ transactions.

Because of this, it is essential that firms use transaction cost analysis (TCA) to determine whether best execution was achieved. eflow can do just that.

Though the method of reporting or chain of command might alter in different financial institutions, our TZ system is here to provide accurate, simple and transparent transaction cost analysis. Our TCA solution is MiFID II-compliant, and can easily export results for use in financial reports. With TZ, errors in execution can be addressed and resolved quickly, and not left to become a systemic risk.
