Users of the RealTick multi-broker electronic trading platform can now execute trades in the European, Asian and the US markets with Nomura following the addition of the Japanese bank’s latest electronic US equity trading products to its platform.
RealTick clients can now access Nomura’s latest ModelEx suite of algorithms, smart router and NX dark crossing platform, and make use of Nomura’s direct market access, program trading and worked order capabilities for US, European and Asian equity execution.
In addition, RealTick offers its clients the ability to use Nomura’s pairs trading and portfolio trading strategies and to access global futures markets via the direct market access, worked order and algorithmic execution services available via ModelEx.
“We will continue to expand our equity offering in the US and are committed to providing a world class electronic trading product to our clients,” said Kevin Brady, managing director, Nomura Securities.
“RealTick’s focus is to ensure that our clients have rapid and easy access to the widest network of brokers and their electronic products globally across asset classes. We are pleased to have expanded the depth and breadth of global execution capabilities by adding Nomura’s ModelEx algorithms into RealTick,” said Michel Finzi, global head of business development at RealTick. “Nomura and RealTick took full advantage of the FIX Algorithmic Trading Definition Language. Combined with RealTick’s interactive broker tools, this enabled us to swiftly and accurately deploy Nomura’s products and tailored new strategies within RealTick.”
