Outsourced Trading and COVID-19: Won’t You Be My Trader?

Outsourcing is widely used around the world to help firms focus on their core functions and control costs.

Boston, May 19, 2020 – In recent conversations with outsourced trading service providers, the sentiment on business conditions and prospects ahead comes across as extremely bullish. These outsourced trading desks purport to be conflict-free specialists in the trading function and are flexible, global, and cost-effective. And although generally thought of as a service for small startup funds, using outsourced trading providers has caught the eye of traditional large and established asset managers as a way to deal with cost pressures and expanding mandates.

This report strives to put these views into greater perspective alongside the latest market conditions stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. It is based on Aite Group interviews with globally based outsourced trading providers during Q1 2020.
