Austin, TX, August 18, 2022 – S3 today unveiled its Global Options Best Ex & TCA solution for firms looking to satisfy Best Execution obligations for options across all jurisdictions.  S3’s US Options Analytics tool is a well-known industry pioneer that is utilized by all the major players in the industry – now those same methodologies and metrics can be employed to evaluate options execution quality in all markets, including Canada, LATAM, EMEA, and APAC.

“We’ve consistently heard about the need for Canadian options analytics, so we took that a step further and went global,” says S3 Global Head of Sales & Strategy, Scott Richard.  “Clients appreciate S3’s ability to present the data in a simplified fashion,” Scott continued, “but most people want to really dig into the stats.  Now you can review the usual metrics like price improvement, at-or-better, and slippage, but with the capability to review in a single currency (like US Dollars or Euros) or in the local currency of the transaction, as well as the flexibility to review from different time zone references.  You can customize reports for trading in any region, set them to run automatically, and track any exceptions with an audit trail, all in the S3 portal.”

The S3 user portal features Global Best Ex & TCA for Options, Equities, and Fixed Income along with the existing suite of US analytics and regulatory reporting products that includes CAT reporting, trade surveillance, and 605 / 606 reporting.  S3 is proud to be your all-in-one solution for managing risk, fulfilling regulatory requirements, and analyzing your trading behavior on multiple asset classes in any jurisdiction around the globe.
