Investment Technology Group (NYSE: ITG), a leading agency broker and financial technology firm, today announced the addition of global electronic trading capabilities in its Triton execution management system (EMS), enabling clients to trade among North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific markets from any location on one platform.
Triton is a broker-neutral, multi-asset EMS that offers clients direct market access to numerous global liquidity sources, algorithmic strategies, and pre- and post-trade analytical tools to help achieve best execution. Triton now enables multiple trading desks to seamlessly share, manage, and trade the same lists simultaneously across borders.
"The globalization of Triton is a critical milestone toward our goal of providing ITG's comprehensive range of product and services to our increasingly global client base," said Bob Gasser, CEO and President of ITG. "Our clients need a product with the same functionality and support levels, whether they are trading in New York, Toronto, London, Sydney or Hong Kong. Now that Triton is truly global, we can deliver consistently superior direct market access capabilities at a time when markets around the world are growing more complex and interconnected."
Triton's client base grew 25 percent year over year globally, with an 8 percent increase in the US. Triton's international client base grew as well, with a 52 percent increase for Europe, Canada, and the Asia Pacific regions.
