Marco Polo Securities has launched its global trading platform today with a focus on using technology to facilitate trading in developed and emerging markets.
Marco Polo has concentrated on overcoming barriers to investment and trading between developed and emerging markets since its founding in 2000, and hopes the new platform will further facilitate cross-border trade.
Marco Polo New World is a global electronic trading platform, providing connections to more than 70 countries and more than 100 markets.
The platform includes a large network of broker dealers and asset manager and has positioned itself as a neutral, flexible platform.
Marco Polo has teamed up with Perseus Telecom to take advantage of its connectivity to enable customers to access a broad range of markets.
Anthony Orantes, managing director of Marco Polo New World, said: “We have strong support and backing by Perseus Telecom, which helps our customers take advantage of the Perseus global ultra-low latency connectivity to exchanges and trading venues.
“We also selected a world-class management team comprised of executives with significant experience operating in global markets, who understand market structure, advanced technology, and electronic exchange trading.”
Orantes joins Dr. Jock Percy, Marco Polo New World chairman, and Cliff Goldman, CFO and president of Marco Polo Securities, to manage the new platform.
