Our Mission

Most portfolio managers and traders don’t realize how much of their trading costs they could save with highly sophisticated trading algorithms. We can significantly reduce costs with iterative measurement and a systematic, quantitative approach to execution that matches each customer’s unique goals with appropriate implementation.

We aim to increase your returns, providing the next generation of algorithms to access the liquidity you need, while minimizing your trading cost and information leakage for all asset classes in all markets. Our exclusive focus is to deliver the best execution experience to our customers with transparency, privacy, and simplified workflow in an unconflicted, broker-dealer neutral approach.

BestEx Research serves buy-side firms who want to reduce their trading costs, as well as sell-side firms who want to improve their customers’ costs and experiences.
