GREY COSTS OF FX

Regulation and cost pressures have driven ever-increasing transparency around how we trade FX today. But how close are we to best execution in FX and how well are we managing the hidden costs of our FX trading today?

Grey Costs of FX:What is in an FX trade?

There is clearly much more to an FX trade than just the spread – but it depends on who you talk to. The front office looks mainly at execution costs and liquidity impact, whilst the back office tend to focus on headcount. Is this diversity one of the reasons for our poor cost tracking?

Grey Costs of FX: We have half as much visibility on FX costs as other asset classes

Beyond TCA, only a small minority of us is tracking the true cost of an FX – well below the global benchmark from our 2020 Grey Costs per Trade research. IS FX an overlooked asset class?

Grey Costs of FX: Only 39% of us are tracking TCA on FX today

Around 40% of our market is failing to track best execution for FX today – with 28% of investors missing this core metric. But with more than 50% of banks tracking TCA based on multiple time-stamps, is there an imbalance across the industry?
