SunGard is expanding its Valdi suite of trading solutions with the introduction of Valdi Trading Analytics (VTA)
SunGard's VTA is a global offering that brings real-time trade execution performance and financial analytics to the front office, helping financial services firms operate smarter and achieve competitive advantage by improving trading profitability and better managing firm-wide trading expense reconciliation. Firms can use VTA as a managed or hosted solution
"One of the biggest challenges facing capital markets and trading firms is the ability to drill down into the granular components of trading costs, in real-time, across asset classes, to achieve superior trading results and optimal business decision-making. SunGard's VTA is well-positioned to help firms gain real-time transparency into their trade execution costs, execution performance and net profitability." – Laurie Berke, principal, TABB Group
Continued market volatility is driving firms to conduct ongoing, detailed analysis of the true cost of trade execution. VTA helps firms to better control costs and increase profits by conducting pre-trade transaction cost analysis, best execution performance evaluation, profit and loss attribution, and reconciliation across multiple trading and back-office systems, helping to enable better trading decisions and increase trade and customer profitability.
