When the system is working well it works seamlessly and is a relative pleasure to use.
Firm 58 serves our purposes here in terms of the segregating and collecting of accounting and trading data.
When the system does not work it can tend to be a problem that takes a while to resolve.
We usually have no to little visibility on what the problem is and how long it will take to resolve.
Currently, there is no differentiation between equities and fixed income in the security description - that needs to be resolved.
Make the system more user friendly. Increase the sharing of information when there is a problem and give greater visibility on what is causing the problems and a strong timeline of how long it will take to resolve issues. Separate the classifications of equities and fixed income products. Currently, the way it works on our end, the 2 are interchangeable and that makes no sense. It should be one or the other.
Trading data / information is collected. Revenue (commissions and P&L) is calculated and segregated into the various silos that we can access.
