bobsguide, an online global resource for business-to-business (B2B) technology and services in the banking, finance and insurance industry, has published its ‘Equities Trading Systems Buyer’s Guide’.
The guide, which is available as a download from the bobsguide website and in print, is the first publication of its kind produced by bobsguide and provides all the information technology decision makers need to choose the most relevant software solution for the analysis, trading and execution of their equity securities.
The guide includes features on the expected impact of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) II regulation, the adoption of new technology such as cloud computing and how vendors can best manage their data, as well as a comprehensive listing of technology vendors offering trading systems.
A user-friendly software and services matrix describes the key features of trading system products and enables readers to compare, at a glance, the features of the solutions relevant to their needs.
The matrix, which is based on an in-depth survey of system features, includes asset types covered, areas of functionality and target markets. It brings this information into one place for the first time and is a powerful tool when considering which trading system to purchase.
Mike Hewitt, chief executive officer (CEO), bobsguide, said: “The bobsguide Equities Trading Systems Buyer’s Guide arrives at a time when the fast-moving world of trading systems is seeing many changes – whether that be from incoming regulation or the adoption of innovative technological solutions. The publication enables users to efficiently compare and contrast the myriad systems available in the market to ensure they choose the best solution for their business.”
