CTM provides a broker two ways of achieving increased transparency into an investment manager counterparty’s allegements when that investment manager using a Broker Matching Group (BRMG). A View Only Broker (VOB) BIC provides full transparency into unpaired investment manager blocks when the broker is specified using a BRMG. VOB is a good solution for brokers with a single connection to CTM because this solution delivers all BRMG allegements to the same location. If a broker has multiple connections to CTM, for example, one for fixed income and a second for equity, Match Advisor is a better solution because it routes allegements back to the connection that submitted the trade.
