Insight to Optimize Order Routing
Determining the effectiveness of each venue or counterparty is a key element in optimizing order routing decisions. With Greenwich Associates research showing increasingly intense buy-side analysis and reallocation, there is increased pressure on sell-side firms, and market makers, to optimize execution in line with buy-side scrutiny.
With Corvil, firms can compare venue and counterparty responsiveness in real-time as well as analyze their fill rates along multiple dimensions (e.g., by order type, by instrument, by client, by latency profile, etc.). These detailed execution profiles can inform venue selection decisions more effectively and identify opportunities to optimize routing.
Corvil also identifies anomalies and changes in venue and counterparty execution quality for early detection and response. Early knowledge enables more proactive and transparent communication with clients and traders, in the form of detailed reporting and suggestions for improving outcomes.
