Peer Analysis

Our flagship offering, ITG Peer Situational Analysis, tells you where every transaction ranks compared to your peers and identifies a set of orders for improvement, before they affect performance in the future. Our patented methodology delivers a client-specific report based on a set of standard criteria that includes summaries of performance by trader and manager, cost and performance trends, results based on a variety of order categories, and a list of negative and positive outliers.

Other Peer Analysis offerings include custom analysis, reports on industry-specific parameters with recommendations for improving performance, and reports that compare broker performance, portfolio manager performance, and algorithmic strategies to historic peer benchmarks.
