Derivatives markets are opaque by design. You only know the firms you trade with. What about the rest?
Counterparty Radar scours the filings of thousands of US mutual funds and exchange-traded funds, as well as the disclosures of US life insurers, to reveal the most popular dealers and most active buy-side firms in 11 different instruments. Users can create their own peer comparisons, inform counterparty selection, and get a headstart in client prospecting and optimisation.
NEW: use the ‘profiles’ tab to see which funds are driving activity for each manager, and are the key clients for each dealer.
