Strategic responses to technological advances, the structural change of the sell side and conflicts of interest.
Investment and trading have unintended consequences that generate conflicts of interest. The majority of these stem from asset managers not being able to monitor and control risks effectively. The technology is available to displace the execution advisory role of the sell side, much as the bulk of investment advisory has already migrated to asset managers. To benefit from this, the buyside should construct the optimal trading schedule in advance of choosing between algorithms that provide access to trading venues. This requires a view of the total trading costs of the order pad to supersede the single stock view of trading that currently dominates. These costs should also be factored into the investment decision making process. As a result, asset managers will increasingly choose to work with providers of data analysis as the interface with markets. This analysis should inform both investment and trading decisions, by incorporating a comprehensive range of signals from equity markets and beyond, using cleaned up and back tested data. Crucially, the portfolios, watch lists and orders must be analysed anonymously, while recording the reasons for decisions to meet supervisory and regulatory requirements. Asset managers that wholeheartedly embrace technological change should expect to improve investment performance, lower execution costs and demonstrate that they treat customers fairly.
