SunGard has introduced Valdi Trading Analytics (VTA), a global offering that provides front-office personnel, particularly those within buy-side firms, with real-time trade execution performance and financial analytics support.
According to SunGard, 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.
SunGard claims that VTA, available as a managed or hosted application, will help financial services firms operate smarter and achieve a competitive advantage by improving trading profitability and better managing firm-wide trading expense reconciliation.
