Delivering Liquidity, Connectivity and Execution Quality That Matters.

KCG’s liquidity is deep, it is broad, and it is unlike any other source in the marketplace. Our client market-making offering attracts substantial retail order flow, feeding our leading market share in small- and mid-cap stocks where more liquidity can lead to better execution. Our electronic trading venues are their own, distinct marketplaces with specific sources of equity, fixed income and foreign exchange liquidity. And our superior algorithmic and routing capabilities allow clients to efficiently and effectively fill their orders by finding and capturing liquidity both inside and outside our walls.

That’s where connectivity comes in. We have access to hundreds of exchanges, ATSs, ECNs, dark pools and other market participants around the world. And, our advanced technology and exceptional client service teams make it easy for anyone to connect and trade with and through us. We built this web of connectivity to access the markets, and we make it available to our clients for a better trading experience.

All this leads to superior execution quality by multiple measures. For one client, it’s speed or price improvement. For another, reducing market impact or executing a large, complicated trade with ease. Some clients have best execution obligations, others have specific needs for specific trades. Regardless, all clients vote with their feet. We are one of the primary sources of liquidity and trading products and services in the world because our execution quality is among the best in the industry.
