Market data

ITG’s Triton is integrated with market data from Reuters and Bloomberg.

Routing and trading venues

Triton offers access to 16 Asian markets, over 80 brokers and 600 different trading destinations. This includes stock exchanges, alternative trading venues, dark pools (including ITG’s POSIT dark pool) and algorithms. In addition, Triton clients have access to ITG’s POSIT Marketplace dark liquidity aggregator which currently links eight of Asia Pacific’s largest dark liquidity pools and delivers an average of 13bps of price improvement on all trades.

In Asia Pacific, clients are able to access smart order routing tools from ITG or other brokers in suitable markets.
