Prop/Quant Trading

In-depth analysis enables enhanced understanding of the cost of execution impact on proprietary quantitative strategies, identifying opportunities to optimise underperforming markets and increasing overall strategy profitability.

Asset Managers

Improved transparency on the characteristics of trading flow across portfolios and markets enables increased understanding of trading patterns, leading to customisation of bespoke trading strategies, reducing implicit transaction costs and increasing profit margins.


Trade surveillance relies on a thorough understanding of both market and trading activity – the same expertise we bring to trading analytics. Our framework can deliver improved transparency to compliance functions, triggering alerts on unexpected trading and unexplained patterns in activity.
