Direct Access and Smart Routing

We provide clients unparalleled direct market access to global equity and option exchanges.  Direct access trading systems use front-end trading software and low latency computer links to virtually all possible trading venues, such as the various electronic communication networks (ECNs), Multi-lateral Trading Facilities, Alternative Trading Systems and Dark Pools. Direct access trading system transactions are executed in a fraction of a second and their confirmations are instantly displayed on the trader's computer screen. This is in contrast to a typical conventional online trader who requires seconds or minutes to execute a trade typically through Market Maker channels preferred by many competitors.

Advanced smart routing capabilities for both equities and options use state-of-the-art quantitative models for best execution and liquidity provision.  Smart order routing is a process of automated selection of execution venues and methodology of order type selection to assure best execution. The process uses systematize selection to reduce execution costs. Smart order routing systems are implemented via a variety of levels of automation, from complete automation of retail flow to manual management of illiquid block trades.
