RealTick, a global multi-broker, cross-asset electronic trading platform, has added Goldman Sachs global futures and options execution services to its platform. RealTick clients can now use Goldman Sachs’ latest algorithms, worked and direct access execution services for futures and options markets.
Goldman Sachs is part of RealTick’s global multi-broker network which includes, among many others, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Barclays Capital, BNP Paribas, CA Cheuvreux, ConvergEx Group, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Instinet, JP Morgan, Knight, MF Global, Morgan Stanley, Nomura, RBC Capital Markets, Societe Generale and UBS.
Peter Ward, head of international sales at RealTick, said: “The integration of global futures and options execution adds to Goldman Sachs’ equity offering already available on RealTick, including algorithmic, worked, dark pool liquidity and direct to market execution services in global equities. This addition provides clients with the potential for broader cross asset execution opportunities and linked trading strategies, as institutions worldwide are moving to more cross asset class trading to generate additional returns for their investors.
“Traders increasingly demand a single, functionally rich platform which can integrate well into their workflow and trading style, across asset classes, whilst providing easy access to their list of broker partners and their execution services. Our focus at RealTick is to provide clients with rapid access to the widest network of brokers and their global electronic products across asset classes.”
