AlgoTrader AG today announced that Phillip Securities Japan Ltd., a Tokyo-based broker with membership in TSE, OSE and TOCOM has integrated AlgoTrader, an institutional-grade and award-winning algorithmic trading solution for trading index futures with its newly launched futures dark pool.
Phillip Securities consulted AlgoTrader to meet their desire for custom execution algos for Japanese futures trading on the JPX. It was important to have a robust, performant and flexible electronic-trading infrastructure to handle Phillip’s precise requirements.
After the successful Go-Live, Phillip Securities’ institutional clients are now able to gain better execution prices and minimize slippage and market impact. Due to the open architecture of AlgoTrader, the software was able to cater to the speciﬁc requirements of Phillip Securities. Hence, Phillip Securities can now satisfy the increasing demand from their institutional clients around the world for high quality, execution of Japanese futures using execution algorithms.
“In today’s world, it is increasingly important to invest in technology and people to better serve customer’s needs. Being a niche broker, we have to focus on being where others aren’t and one step ahead. We are happy about the successful go-live and implementation of our own custom execution algos for the popular Index futures products on the JPX. The algos are integrated with our newly launched dark pool, offering price improvement with reduced tick sizes.
