Mark Kuzminskas, director of equity trading for Robeco Investment Management, told Traders Magazine he would be willing to pay for execution consulting if it could be shown to add value.
Kuzminskas said he has seen the sellside beef up their low-touch areas, adding more contact individuals to provide updates, performance metrics and trend spotting.
