Q1 2023 Sell-Side Execution Management Insight Report

Acuiti today publishes the Q1 2023 Sell-Side Execution Management Insight Report. This report is based on a quarterly survey of the Acuiti Sell-Side Execution Expert Network, a group of senior executives in execution roles across banks and brokers globally.

This quarter’s report looks back on the lessons to be learnt from 2022, while also considering the themes that will most matter to execution desks in 2023. Additionally, this report includes a section on market data, and a deep-dive on innovation in sell-side execution, produced in partnership with Horizon Software.

Some of the key findings of the report included:

  • 47% of the respondents thought that market data costs were “far too high”, with the remainder saying that they were too high
  • 2022 was a very strong year for execution desks as volatility gripped global markets
  • Executives expect the most opportunity in metals and commodities during 2023
  • Cost bases increased in 2022 but executives are targeting headcount reduction in 2023
