The TRADE would like to thank all of the buy- and sell-side firms that took part in this year’s survey. As always, we encourage as many firms as possible to take part as possible and to get their clients involved. In the autumn 2018 edition of The TRADE we will publish the results of this year’s Execution Management System (EMS) Survey. Issue 56 // TheTradeNews.com // 79
