provides access to equity trading, research, corporate access and the capital
markets division. The firm’s analysis and economists collaborate across the
capital structure to bring customers a holistic view of the opportunities abd
risks embedded into each of its investment recommendations. Wells Fargo also
hosts frequent client conferences to discuss company/sector dynamics, as well

web-based product, WATS Trade Color, where clients can monitor executions in
real-time for full transparency.
Wells Fargo algorithmic suite is customisable and the company works closely
with traders and portfolio managers to understand the urgency and alpha of
every firm. Wells Fargo believes ‘out of the box’ algorithms are not useful for
every trader, so it adjusts each strategy to work for the individual trader.
electronic trading technology support sits on the desk with trading and sales
to provide seamless support. Wells Fargo works very closely with the various
order management and execution management system providers to ensure a smooth
0n-boarding process. Since all of the WATS electronic trading algorithms access
displayed and non-displayed liquidity, the firm is in constant dialogue with
broker dealers, discussing execution quality, latency and available liquidity.
