TZBE Best Execution & Transaction Cost Analysis
Demonstrate compliance with Best Execution legislation while uncovering commercial insights
How TZBE adds value to your regulatory strategy
TZBE enables a financial institution to satisfy its regulatory obligations under Best Execution legislation, such as MiFID II in Europe and FINRA Rule 5310 in the US. This legislation outlines that a firm has a responsibility “to take all sufficient steps to obtain, when executing orders, the best possible results for its clients”.
Given the scale and variety of trading activity undertaken by many firms, a digital system is an essential tool to ingest and analyse the multiple data points that need to be monitored to ensure compliance.
TZBE’s highly customisable structure means that it can scale and flex with your business requirements. Your platform will be capable of ingesting, testing and reporting on all major instrument types and asset classes to ensure that you stay compliant, no matter what you trade. The platform will automatically run best execution tests against a range of industry benchmarks including VWAP, Time, Venue, Implementation Shortfall/Slippage, and Best Bid/Ask, before generating ‘regulator ready’ reports.
The platform features highly configurable parameters that can be customised and tested to mirror your trading strategy, automatically account for variables, and reduce false positives. Your chosen reports can also be set based on a number of reference and market data metrics such as volatility and instrument liquidity. Should a trade deviate from expected parameters, it will be flagged for further analysis, enabling the production of detailed TCA reports that highlight areas requiring attention. TZBE also includes MiFID II-compliant data archiving and indexing as standard to ensure that you are one step ahead of your regulatory obligations.
