Truston Asset Management Adopts Bloomberg BTCA

April 26, 2018

Transaction Cost Analysis Tool will help firm to comply with increasing regulatory requirements on best execution and transparency


Seoul – April 26, 2018 – Bloomberg announced today that Truston Asset Management (“Truston”), South Korea’s leading independent asset manager, has adopted Bloomberg’s Transaction Cost Analysis (“BTCA”), to analyze and monitor trading performance for Korean equity trades executed for its overseas institutional investors.


BTCA allows Truston to demonstrate to its institutional investors that they have taken the broadest steps to obtain the best possible result when executing orders. Bloomberg’s Transaction Cost Analysis (BTCA) solutions seamlessly integrate local and international regulatory requirements for Asian firms, across multiple asset classes, including OTC derivatives, to set, demonstrate and monitor an order execution policy and help ensure the firm is compliant. It is also a tool that helps quantify broker strategy, which in turn helps boost margins and direct profitability back to investors.


“MiFID II has really helped to kick-start the conversation about best execution in Asia,” said Fiona Lui, Head of Hong Kong, Taiwan and Korea at Bloomberg. “Firms need to continue having conversations with their regulators on what it means for them to be compliant, or they may be caught unprepared. Firms are looking to stay ahead of best practices as Asia-based regulators are already moving towards greater transparency in their own markets, brought on by client demands and stronger financial risk management.”
