AXA IM’s Head of Trading, Paul Squires, Featured in Best Execution

Dawn of a New Era

Paul Squires is head of trading for the trading and securities financing team at AXA, covering all asset classes including derivatives. In Best Execution’s “Summer 2013” issue, Squires discusses how the financial crisis — and the regulatory developments that followed — have given rise to buy-side traders.

In the issue, Squires also discusses the rising trend toward multi-asset trading across the buyside.

 “More recently, we have integrated an execution management system (EMS) to enhance functionality of a single platform for multi-asset trading. We started with equities, which upgraded our algo capabilities to offer greater granularity on how we are trading, which venues we are using, and are about to move FX onto our EMS, which has already enabled us to deliver enhanced execution performance analysis. This supplemented the benchmarking work that we had already been providing in fixed income using our propriety tools.”
