Fidessa group plc (LSE: FDSA), provider of high-performance trading, investment management and information solutions for the worldâs financial community, has today launched a new publication to enhance the analysis and commentary it already provides on liquidity fragmentation across the world's equity markets.
FragINSIGHT, which will be published six times a year, aims to provide readers with a clear understanding of the main factors impacting the global trading landscape with each issue providing a unique insight into a specific industry-related topic. The launch issue includes a focus on multi-lateral trading facilities' (MTFsâ) strategies of differentiation and examines the extent to which clearing remains the final hurdle in the path to true interoperability in Europe.
Drawing on Fidessa's award-winning fragmentation analysis tools â the Fidessa Fragmentation Index (FFI) and FragulatorÂ® â the report will also provide a regular snapshot of fragmentation across the USA, Canada, Europe, Asia and Japan, allowing readers to build a clear picture of how the global equity markets are evolving.
"As our fragmentation community continues to grow we receive requests from all over the world for information and analysis," states Steve Grob, Director of Group Strategy at Fidessa. "We piloted FragINSIGHT last month and, in light of the overwhelmingly positive reception, we decided to launch it as a regular report and share it with the wider community."
