FX Transparency Launches TCA Analytics Application

FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- FX Transparency ("FXT"), the largest  independent provider of FX transaction cost analysis (FX TCA) and best-execution consulting globally, today announced the release of FXT Analytics™, a hosted application that will allow clients to create their own custom reports as well as explore new ways to reduce trading costs.

Built to help investors demonstrate FX best-execution efforts, the application allows users to select a subset of their trades based on 19 different filtering criteria, including ticket size, custodian-executed trades, and execution algorithm. 

"The common thread among our clients was a need for them to build a report on a subset of trade data," says John Galanek, the firm's COO. "For the asset owner, that might mean a report on a single manager or sub advisor. For the investment manager, it often means a report for a single account or client, or perhaps comparing different execution algorithms or dealer-execution capabilities."

The depth and integrity of the information investors receive has improved, which is why FXT believes its clients can and should undertake a more extensive review of best-execution practices, Galanek points out. For instance, it's crucial to get the answers to these types of questions:

  • Are custodians living up to execution arrangements? 
  • Which dealer has offered the best pricing for restricted currency NDF's?
  • If your company's sales coverage changed at one of your key counterparties, has execution quality been impacted? 
  • Has the ECN or execution algorithm you added justified the brokerage and technology expenditure through improved pricing?

"All of these questions and many more can be answered with FXT Analytics™," Galanek says.

Since cofounding FX Transparency in April 2009, CEO James McGeehan and Galanek have helped their growing roster of institutional clients around the world quantify and reduce their currency-trading costs. FX Transparency offers its clients the unique FXT Peer Universe™ program, to compare their costs to the largest source of actual buy-side FX executions, as well as ground-breaking research on trading costs related to standing-instruction (or commonly "non-negotiated") FX trades.
