Trading Analytics is part of a comprehensive solution provided by IHS Markit's Trading Service division that helps investment managers and broker-dealers evaluate the execution services received from counterparties to reduce transaction costs and protect alpha.

The Transaction Cost Analysis (TCA) product within Trading Analytics has over 90 benchmarks that helps investment managers deconstruct the implicit costs into multiple categories including but not limited to spread, market impact, and opportunity costs. These implicit costs together with the explicit costs provide investment managers an overall view of the total costs incurred on the trade. The product currently covers Equities, ETF's, Equity Options, FX, Government and Sovereign Bonds, Loans, Money Market Instruments, Asset Backed Securities and Credit Default Swaps and is looking to enter new asset classes.

The Best-Execution product within Trading Analytics helps Buy-Side and Sell-Side firms comply with Best-execution regulations such as Regulation NMS (in United States) and MIFID II (Europe). The Trading Analytics suite of products provides significant value to clients that require a cross-sectional analysis of their trading activity.

The Product Team is responsible for evaluating and understanding the evolving analytics marketplace, devising the core vision for future products, designing these products, writing specifications, and working with the Development and QA teams to take the products to market.
