ITG adds equity index futures trading capabilities to portfolio algo

13 May 2010  |  2658 views  |  0 Source: Investment Technology Group

Investment Technology Group (NYSE:ITG), a leading agency broker and financial technology firm, today announced new equity index futures trading capabilities in its portfolio algorithm, Dynamic Implementation Shortfall (IS).

The algorithm can now execute baskets containing any mix of both stocks and equity index futures. Stocks and futures contracts will execute simultaneously in a risk- and dollar-controlled manner. With the new functionality, Dynamic IS is especially powerful in trade situations where the execution of futures contracts is dependent on the trading of stocks, such as replacing a fund's equitized cash position (in futures) with stock positions, and executing large portfolios hedged with futures contracts.

"By combining execution capabilities across asset classes, Dynamic IS simplifies and reduces the risk of trading stock portfolios in concert with index futures," said Hitesh Mittal, ITG's head of Liquidity Management. "This new capability gives traders unparalleled control over portfolio execution."

Dynamic IS with futures capability is available via ITG's award-winning execution management system, Triton. It is an enhancement to ITG's existing derivatives trading capabilities, which offer extensive multi-asset functionality across a variety of trading applications as well as APIs for black-box DMA strategies in the futures and options markets.
