RealTick, a multi-broker, cross-asset execution management system (EMS) from trading technology provider Townsend Analytics, now offers users access to Goldman Sachs’ global futures and options execution services, which include the broker’s latest algorithms, worked and direct access execution offerings.
Goldman’s equity execution services, including the firm’s dark pool liquidity, are already available on RealTick.
“This addition provides clients with the potential for broader cross-asset execution opportunities and linked trading strategies, as institutions worldwide are moving to more cross-asset-class trading to generate additional returns for their investors.” said Peter Ward, head of international sales at RealTick, in a statement. “Traders increasingly demand a single, functionally-rich platform which can integrate well into their workflow and trading style, across asset classes, whilst providing easy access to their list of broker partners and their execution services.”
RealTick grants clients access to electronic execution services from a range of global brokers, including Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Barclays Capital, BNP Paribas, CA Cheuvreux, ConvergEx Group, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Instinet, J.P. Morgan, Knight, MF Global, Morgan Stanley, Nomura, RBC Capital Markets, Société Générale and UBS.
