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.”
Added Michel Finzi, Global Head of Business Development at RealTick, “Traders increasingly want a single platform which integrates well into their work flow, one that is functionally rich, configurable and easy to use and which provides access to the latest execution capabilities from their broker partners. Nomura and RealTick took full advantage of the FIX Algorithmic Trading Definition Language (atdl). Combined with RealTick’s interactive broker tools, this enabled us to swiftly and accurately deploy Nomura’s products and tailored new strategies within RealTick.”
