Our approach to Equity Trading

Leaders in high-touch execution

Whilst we are a major trader of European equities across the market cap spectrum, we are recognised by our institutional clients as leaders in high-touch execution, specialising in crossing blocks of stock where low liquidity can be a constraining factor. Our market makers, sales traders and equity sales teams work seamlessly together to find buyers and sellers to deliver best execution for our clients.

Extensive reach

As a Systematic Internaliser (SI) in over 5,000 instruments, we have access to all MTFs and a significant presence on the Retail Service Platform, giving electronic reach into every private client stockbroker and online investment platform in the UK. In addition, we have active relationships with all share registrars and are a major trader for the private client broker and wealth manager markets.
