Connectivity

A Global Web That Empowers You to Trade Better

KCG builds the connections our clients need to access markets all around the world. This web of connectivity feeds the deep liquidity that allows us to provide high-quality executions.

Our team develops and deploys advanced technology for better, more flexible liquidity sourcing. We make it easy to tap our liquidity, whether it’s through one of our Venues, by using our Algorithmic Services, or as our Market Making client. And to reach liquidity in the marketplace, we are connected to nearly every market center, including exchanges and ATSs, as well as directly to thousands of other market participants globally.

We back our technology with exceptional client service, tailoring our connectivity services to individual needs.

Exchange Membership and Participation

KCG’s broker-dealer affiliates are members of or participate on approximately 50 exchanges, clearinghouses, regulated markets and multi-lateral trading facilities.

Connectivity Services

Connectivity is pivotal in providing access for our clients to the increasingly fragmented marketplace. Our clients rely on our client connectivity team, which provides a complete spectrum of services and consulting on electronic trading infrastructure and trade execution services.

Complementary to our execution services, we work closely with clients at the outset of each connectivity engagement to meet their technology needs. Clients can initiate their connectivity to KCG through financial extranets, direct circuits, cross connects or virtual private network (vpn). We have the flexibility to work with proprietary systems as well as the OMS/EMS providers selected by clients.

Before commencing services, we work with each client’s back office to make sure they receive the appropriate information for clearance and settlement. Additionally, we provide insight on services that either KCG or another third-party can provide to enhance electronic trading systems and infrastructure.

Order & Execution Management Systems

We connect to multiple third-party order management companies that provide order routing for clients.

Telecommunications Providers and Data Centers

We are connected to several financial extranets, data center facilities and telecommunications providers which include, but are not limited to, the following:

AT&T Hibernia Networks Savvis
BT Radianz Services RCN Verizon
Equinix Reliance Globalcom XO Communications
