Global market coverage

We trade internationally across more than 50 markets, and have trading and clearing relationships with securities firms spanning the planet. Besides helping us efficiently execute trades and settlements, these relationships arm us with high-caliber, up-to-the-minute market intelligence at the local, regional and global levels.

Decades of experience

With an over 40-year history in the securities business, we have gained an in-depth knowledge of global markets, and have successfully managed and executed sophisticated trading strategies for institutions of all types and sizes.

Putting client interests first– always

Agency-only trading allows us to remain independent and avoid the conflicts inherent in the traditional brokerage model, which combines agency and proprietary trading. This has earned us the patronage of some of the world’s most respected investment firms and institutional investors.


Anonymity and confidentiality are uppermost on our clients’ minds, so we ensure that each and every transaction is executed discreetly and all client details are handled with extreme sensitivity.
