SJ Levinson & Sons said Tuesday it had launched a set of predictive analytics that will allow traders to improve returns and benchmark their results.

The brokerage firm, which serves institutional customers, said its Trade Analysis Program will help implement trading strategies, by predicting results before execution begins, and analyze results, after trades have concluded.

The ability to quantify best execution and performance across multiple venues is becoming important as complex trading strategies, executed at high speed, electronically, invites heightened regulatory scrutiny, the firm said.

This program " created to be so much more than just a compliance checkbox; the wealth of data it is capable of creating and analyzing is actionable, which is very important,” said Matthew Celebuski, senior managing director and head of the Quantitative Research and Trading team at SJ Levinson & Sons.

The approach "permits us to analyze our trading behavior and alter our strategies based on intelligence gleaned in real-time, which is a unique advantage,” said Nanette J. Buziak, senior vice president and head of Equity Trading at ING Investment Management Co.

The predictive and analytic approach arose from discussions between SJ Levinson & Sons’ Quantitative Research team and its large institutional client base, the company said.
