RealTick, the leading global multi-broker, cross-asset electronic trading platform, has added Goldman Sachs to its international multi-broker network.
This important arrangement allows clients to access Goldman Sachs Electronic Trading (GSET) through RealTick EMS.
RealTick users can now access the latest range of equity algorithms from GSET. Clients will also have the ability to send orders to Goldman Sachs' ATS, SIGMA X, as well as send orders directly to the market via Goldman Sachs' SIGMA smart order router, allowing customers to reach a broad pool of equity liquidity globally.
Michel Finzi, Global Head of Business Development, Townsend Analytics comments, "Clients, across the spectrum, increasingly want to take greater control of order execution and access to their key trading partners. There is strong demand to have a single system on their desk, from which they can easily and efficiently manage and route orders to the brokers and venues of their choosing. We already have a number of institutions connected and sending orders to GSET via RealTick, with several more in the pipeline."
"We are pleased to have added Goldman Sachs, a leading provider of market liquidity in global equities, onto the RealTick network. We believe RealTick clients will benefit from being able to route orders to GSET via thirteen algorithmic strategies, including regional specific ones, without changing platform or interface," continues Finzi. "RealTick is a global, multi-broker EMS that streamlines and simplifies user workflow, with the technology infrastructure, reliable data and robust operations."
