While electronic platforms and trade algorithms have made for more efficient markets, some buy-side participants believe it comes at a cost, and the cost is execution quality. Christian Hauff, co-founder and CEO of Quantitative Brokers says these same modern tools can help the buy-side obtain better execution, as well as better transaction cost analysis (TCA).
