Societe General’s program trading (PT) sources flows from the firm’s global network, benefitting from a team of experienced sales traders and a global execution platform. The company provides access to 70 venues with significant market share on major exchanges, a crossing network – Alpha-X accessing markets in Hong Kong, with Japan and Australia to follow. It also provides a full suite of execution capabilities with access to liquidity and execution consulting and agency and guaranteed pricing, plus capital commitment and index advisory.


Based on client confidentiality profiles, PT will
have access to various liquidity sources and aims to maximise crossing
opportunities, including via Societe Generale’s Alpha-X crossing engine. PT
accounts for up to 30% of the firm’s equities trading activities in Asia.


In addition to pre- and post-trade tools, Societe
Generale is implementing an innovative transaction cost analysis solution,
allowing customised report generation and deep data analysis.  Customised execution and performance
reports as well as audit reports are also included. With a quantitative
approach and a global platform, Societe Generale offers global transitions with
a focus on minimising transaction costs, maintaining confidentiality, and
managing complex implementation constraints.

Future plans

The firm will be expanding its liquidity solutions and algorithmic suite and capital commitment capabilities to serve the different needs of its clients.
