We benchmark everyday. Our consultants are gauging operations practices out in the field. Our analysts are comparing systems functionality through research and vendor demos. Because we are continuously exposed to technology advances, operations practices, and industry trends, we are perfectly positioned to provide you with a detailed understanding of how you stack up to your peers, from many different angles.

In today’s increasingly competitive environment, it is more important than ever for investment firms to have a good understanding of their position relative to their peers.  It is good to know how effective your firm’s processes are, but even better to know how and where you can focus resources for improvement.

CutterBenchmarking is the leading benchmarking service that focuses on investment systems and operations. We provide a meaningful perspective that enables firms to compare their investment processes to their peers and to “best in class” capabilities.

This study is an update of a study we conducted in 2014 that benchmarks how firms are prioritizing best execution practices, sourcing liquidity, overseeing their trading desks, and capitalizing on technology resources.

The survey explores your firm's Execution Management practices across a variety of asset classes, and covers:
  • Best Execution Policies and Oversight
  • Transaction Cost Analysis
  • Broker Management
  • Commission Management
  • Trader Roles and Accountability
  • Trading Technology
