How to build low-touch, multi-asset trading desks

Leading asset managers are building low-touch, multi-asset trading desks to deliver automation wherever possible. Building automation into the trading process requires the asset manager to define best practices around volume, asset class and timeliness of liquidity, then building appropriate rules into the execution process.

John Adam, global director, Portfolio Management & Trading Solutions at FactSet, says trying a one-size-fits-all approach results in one-size-fits-none outcome. Instead, specific expertise in asset class trading is needed to ensure that the right parameters around execution quality are built into the execution management system, to deliver efficiency with no loss of quality.
