Theta is leading the revolution to redefine buy-side trading.
3 issues IMs are facing: 1. Regulatory and market structure will continue to have far reaching ramifications around conduct, consumer protection and market structures. Brexit only adds to this. 2. A limited technology response and lack of end-to-end STP, enlightened IM’s understand that the current models, and means to address them, are sub-optimal. Solutions available largely siloed and narrow in their focus. Despite buy-side trading desk appetite for seamless, interconnected functionality. 3. Margin pressures – Everything is becoming more expensive to service. Whether it is the cost of trading or research, margins and P&L are under pressure as never before.
