Townsend Analytics is now providing internal traders and clients of Tullett Liberty's global Equity Division with its RealTick® multi-product market data, analytics, and direct-access trading platform.

One of the world's largest independent agency equity brokers, Tullett Liberty provides institutional broker clients and hedge funds with access to more than 30 exchanges worldwide. With RealTick, Tullett Liberty clients can now trade more than 40 North American and European markets through a single platform, greatly increasing their trading efficiency.

RealTick's sophisticated order handling and decision-support tools also allow traders to easily employ more complex equity trading strategies, such as algorithmic trading and basket trading of multiple securities simultaneously. In addition, specialty order types including conditional, reserve, discretionary, pegged, stop and seamlessly integrated worked orders allow users to fully control and manage their trading, lessen the market impact of a trade, and preserve anonymity.

"As an execution-only broker, we depend upon state-of-the-art technology to maintain a competitive edge," states Leslie O'Malley, Managing Director at Tullett Liberty. "RealTick's advanced functionality and continued technical innovation ensure we're providing our clients with the means to achieve best execution and pricing," he adds.

"Tullett Liberty is one of the most established and respected agency brokers in the world, and we are pleased their Equity Division has made RealTick their platform of choice for data, analysis, order execution and connectivity for their clients and traders," states Rustam Lam, Managing Director TAL Europe (Townsend Analytics). "By forging this relationship with a market leader, we are strengthening our presence and affirming our position as an innovator in trading technology," he adds.

RealTick delivers a wide range of North American and European market data and trading capability across equity, futures, options, fixed income, and foreign exchange markets, unlimited depth of book, advanced research and analytical tools, risk and account management tools, as well as direct trading connectivity to major pools of liquidity such as listed exchanges in the U.S. and overseas, ECNs and broker specific destinations.

One of the world's first direct-access trading platforms, Townsend Analytics' RealTick is widely used by institutional and active traders in 94 countries and territories. Euromoney magazine's first annual Financial Technology Users' Survey recently ranked RealTick highly in several categories, including Overall Cross-Category, Market Data Provider, FX & Derivatives, and Cash Positioning.
