Data Science and Technology

By John Adam  |  February 27, 2020

Automation is bringing structural changes to the buy-side trading desk. Rather than being segmented by asset-class silos, trading desks are increasingly segmented around high-touch, low-touch, and no-touch trading. Trading rules and automation allow traders to trade across multiple asset classes, freeing them up to look at trade analytics and choose their moments of intervention, which allows them to have the most impact in their roles and add the most value to the portfolio lifecycle.

Watch this video in which John Adam, Global Director of Portfolio Management and Trading Solutions at FactSet, discusses how asset managers can deliver highly efficient access to markets by automating trading across asset classes.
