Electronic Trading

Increasing profit-making opportunities for cross-asset electronic trading

The move to electronification has multiple drivers: regulations, cost optimisation, functional diversification and performance and speed. GreySpark’s depth of expertise can be traced back to the beginning of the transformation from voice to electronic trading. Since then, we have developed particular expertise in cross-asset electronic trading.
We leverage these experiences to provide our clients with invaluable research and strategies that help them adapt to today’s fast-paced financial landscape. By helping our clients to integrate business and technology strategies for all client- and market-facing activity, we materially improve their bottom line where profit-making opportunities are increasingly hard to find.

Our Value

Throughout the highly competitive financial industry, there is an increasing need to understand the performance and latency; the drivers and the measures.

Regulators are increasingly scrutinising the governance, controls and surveillance of electronic trading platforms while clients are demanding more transparency. These developments are now driving platform providers to seek new, innovative ways to improve functionality and differentiate themselves from their competitors.

Both buyside and sellside financial services firms are therefore under increasing pressure to simplify their technology architecture, reduce costs and provide multi-asset solutions.

GreySpark’s experience includes hands-on delivery of project solution, advisory and strategy, competitor analysis, target architecture, buy vs. build decision making and vendor selection.

Our consultants have an extraordinary depth of experience supporting clients across all areas of electronic trading including:

  • Exchange connectivity
  • Order routing and management
  • Execution management
  • Client connectivity
  • Market data
  • Automatic and algorithmic trading

Our Electronic Trading team works closely with our FinTech & Strategy teams to ensure that our clients’ platforms are supported by the correct technologies and vendors. We are always looking for new, innovative solutions that will deliver added value and long-lasting benefits.
