ITG Trading Cost Index Spans Wide Offering
According to Ian Domowitz, ITG Managing Director and Head of Analytics in a statement on the launch of the mobile app, “Liquidity Metrics is a powerful, easy-to-use application providing high-level data on a next-day or historical basis. The availability via both a web and mobile application makes ITG’s Trading Cost Index a valuable tool for institutional investors who want to quickly check trading costs across sectors or regions.” The Trading Cost Index helps provide daily transaction figures globally and across a variety of asset classes and categories for traders and portfolio managers – ITG has engineered the tool to help culture a more transparent and in-depth view on trading costs over select timeframes to give users the most comprehensive look into pricing history. ITG’s Trading Cost Index follows the archetype of ITG Peer Database, which is comprised of a global composite of buy-side institutions, encapsulating nearly 20% of global institutional trading volume.
