ETF Trading

Providing a Full Spectrum of Trading Solutions

KCG is one of the largest sources of exchange-traded fund (ETF) liquidity in the U.S., and our ETF team is recognized as among the most experienced and skilled in the industry. We provide clients with access to deep buy- and sell-side ETF order flow—supported by capital facilitation when needed—through a full spectrum of trading solutions, as well as a consultative approach to product selection and execution.

Execution Services

KCG’s ETF trading team offers clients agency and principal facilitation across virtually all ETF sponsors, in all ETFs, in the Americas & Europe. Through advanced, internally developed technology, we support standard order types for secondary market access to liquid names; risk markets for blocks, with execution of orders outside normal market hours and in less liquid names; and NAV-based execution through the underlying basket. We also offer creation/redemption in the primary market, which allows institutional investors an alternative path to ETF exposure.


The ETF team's experience dates back nearly to the inception of ETF trading itself. Our global team combines specialized expertise with real-time data and market feedback to offer our clients unique product and trading solutions, as well as thoughtful commentary on market structure and other industry developments across the globe. We assist institutions in the ETF selection process, including advice on the most suitable execution paths and liquidity studies.


Securities are offered by KCG Americas LLC, member of FINRA and SIPC, and by KCG Europe Limited, a broker-dealer authorized and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.  Both are wholly owned broker-dealer subsidiaries of KCG Holdings, Inc.  For important disclosures related to products and services, please click here.
