Algorithmic Trading

Deep liquidity expertise makes it possible.

Our unique DNA creates a big difference to how we approach the markets.

And because we share intellectual capital and technologies across our core competencies — market making, agency execution and trading venues — we have the agility to innovate and improve our clients’ trading experience in a way we believe no other firm can.

As such, our clients can benefit from superior algorithms and experienced trading desks to access liquidity, maintain anonymity and minimize market impact.

Our tools and strategies are built to think like a market maker, backed by world-class quantitative analytics and an unwavering commitment to technological innovation.

A nuanced approach. A focus on micro-alpha.

We will help you to:

Source liquidity wherever possible

  • Leverage our ability to source liquidity off-exchange and navigate the dark.

Opportunistically provide liquidity to the marketplace

  • Leverage our on-exchange market making expertise and our ability to provide liquidity.

Quickly and efficiently remove liquidity when necessary

  • Our focus on technology and speed sets us apart – and empowers our quantitative capabilities and unique order management tools.
