Societe Generale Corporate & Investment Banking announced today that it has added Chile to its global Quantitative Electronic Services* (QES) platform, therefore bringing one of the broadest Latin American Direct Market Access (DMA) and algorithmic trading offerings to institutional investors. Chile joins the existing offering in the Americas, which includes the US, Canada, Brazil and Mexico.
The addition of Chile to the wider emerging markets offering, which includes key Latin American and Asian markets, further strengthens the bank's overall execution platform. The introduction of equity electronic trading in a tenth emerging country underlines Societe Generale's commitment to extend its geographic coverage and provide innovative technology and services.
With this addition, the bank is now offering direct electronic access on key global exchanges including all developed European markets (15 primary exchanges and the 4 largest MTFs), and the main Asian and American exchanges. With access to one of the largest liquidity pools in global equities (including #1 market share on Nyse-Euronext), the bank's Cash Equity Execution team offers global coverage across 65 markets, comprehensive liquidity solutions, advanced algorithms and an integrated execution product, which includes all equities & exchange traded funds (ETFs).
The bank is continuously seeking to enhance its sales-trading service, innovate in global electronic services, provide consistent capital commitment across all equities, and to reinforce its offering in portfolio trading, index & quant services, futures as well as US and Pan-Asian products.
