The company custodies and services accounts for hedge and mutual funds, registered investment advisors, proprietary trading groups, introducing brokers and individual investors. Segments The company’s activities are divided into two principal segments, Electronic Brokerage and Market Making. As a direct market access broker, the company serves the customers of both traditional brokers and prime brokers.

Its customers could simultaneously access various financial markets worldwide and trade across multiple asset classes (stocks, options, futures, foreign exchange (forex), bonds and mutual funds) denominated in 23 different currencies, on 1 screen, from a single account based in any major currency. As a market maker, the company provides continuous bid and offers quotations on approximately one million securities and futures products listed on electronic exchanges worldwide. The company’s quotes are driven by proprietary mathematical models that assimilate market data and reevaluate its outstanding quotes each second.
