TickSmith Releases Transaction Cost Analysis (TCA) Tool

Share article

Montreal-based TickSmith has made available its Transaction Cost Analysis (TCA) solution offering, providing clients with a library of industry standard transaction cost analytics. Deployed as a turnkey solution with all the flexibility of a custom application, TickSmith’s TCA offering can be calibrated to suit unique client requirements.

The TCA add-on to the TickSmith analytics platform is capable of producing best execution reports to fulfill MiFID II requirements. In describing the features of the TCA solution, TickSmith emphasizes the library’s customizability and its flexibility, also stating that the suite can support the back-end.

Francis Wenzel, TickSmith CEO says, “Our clients for this product are typically trading groups, financial institutions—trading on behalf of or for clients. They have trading desks and infrastructure, and they’re primarily on the buy-side, running some sort of infrastructure in-house. In addition to the TCA, they’ve ordered trade data, and they also do best execution reports for clients. With the TCA, they can ask if they got their money’s worth with a transaction, and that’s the optimal achievement for themselves or a client.”
