ITG (ITG), a leading independent execution and research broker, today announced the expansion of its capabilities for international investors seeking to trade Latin American equities.
ITG now provides a full suite of algorithms and high touch trading for Chilean equities, as well as high-touch trading for Colombian and Peruvian equities. ITG also added to its algorithmic trading capabilities in Brazilian and Mexican equities, launching versions of the ITG Raider Algorithm customized for each market.
This latest expansion of capabilities in Latin America follows on ITG's launch in July of POSIT Alert® for Mexican equities, which enables traders to anonymously cross blocks of shares on the Bolsa Mexicana de Valores (BMV).
"With the addition of Chile, Peru and Colombia, ITG now provides trading services across all of the countries included in the MSCI Latin America Index, enabling us to serve a wider range of institutional investors," said Eric Blake, Director, Latin America. "We look forward to further expanding our capabilities in the region as part of our commitment to providing best execution to our clients on a global basis."
ITG's Latin America algorithms are available via ITG's award-winning Triton® execution management system and also via FIX connection to ITG from third-party trading systems
