TradeSmart® Awarded Best Fixed Income Trading Platform 2017
TS is proud to receive this award; it marks the fifth year the company has received accolade from Wall Street Letter (WSL). It demonstrates the passion our global teams put into engineering a trading platform for all brokers, all markets, all asset classes. We earnestly thank our clients into this new year for earning us industry recognition once again.
In this blog post, we share insight into the basic requirements, key challenges, our approach for a smooth transition from IBORs to ARRs and an outlook for what’s next in the multi-year journey to move away from IBORs.
When analysing performance, measuring a portfolio’s actual return answers the “what” and “when” questions –– it tells us what return the portfolio delivered over a specified period of time. While that information is obviously important, the goal of a performance attribution analysis is to go beyond “what” and “when” to explain “how” and “why”.
Fixed Income markets are based on an underlying assumption that has prevented the development of a market structure that enables liquidity, transparency, and higher volumes.
