Instinet Incorporated today announced the global availability of Nomura's advanced electronic futures trading platform via the Newport Execution Management System (EMS).

Commenting on the announcement, Jonathan Kellner, Chief Executive Officer at Instinet, said: "Building out our multi-asset offering has been a major strategic focus for Instinet globally over the past few years. We're excited to expand our broker-neutral derivatives network with the addition of Nomura's electronic futures platform, which offers a range of advanced DMA and algorithmic strategies for trading today's futures markets globally."

John Macpherson, Global Head of Futures and Options at Nomura, added: "Nomura continues its expansion into the electronic futures space with the launch of our next-generation electronic execution platform. At the same time, we remain focused on seeking out opportunities to strategically leverage Instinet's technology and distribution capabilities given its role as Nomura's equities execution services arm. Integrating our advanced suite of futures trading tools into Instinet's EMS is a natural extension of this strategy, which we see as providing significant benefits to the hundreds of large institutional clients globally who trade via Newport."
