A rising number of asset managers across the globe are exploring the possibility of outsourcing or co-sourcing their trading desk requirements.
Trading desk providers and experts say there are a range of business benefits, including wider coverage, better execution, new sources of liquidity, trading anonymity, and increased operational flexibility.
But questions remain for asset managers. What is involved in adopting an outsourced trading model? Who are the ideal candidates for outsourcing? What use cases should a fund consider when making a decision? What are the trade-offs and how should firms evaluate them?
