CA Cheuvreux enhances algorithmic trading tools across Europe via Fidessa

Fidessa, provider of the Fidessa and Fidessa LatentZero trading solutions for the sell-side and buy-side, has announced that CA Cheuvreux, the European agency broker of Calyon Group and a subsidiary of Crédit Agricole, has expanded its algorithmic suite of strategies offered through the Fidessa LatentZero execution management service.

The new algorithms include the shadow algorithm, which uses sophisticated strategies to allow investors to follow a trading trend while hiding their intention from the market; the inline algorithm, which delivers an implementation shortfall by trading as much as possible while minimising market impact; and the summit runner, which helps buy-side customers avoid paying the spread by disguising orders behind liquidity providers.

'The further enhancement of our algorithmic trading offering underlines our commitment to continue to invest in and deliver the best suite of algorithmic strategies to our customers,' says Jerry Lees, head of alternative execution services at CA Cheuvreux. 'We are very pleased to partner with Fidessa whose business supports our objective of reaching buy-side and sell-side clients.'

Fidessa LatentZero users can now access CA Cheuvreux's additional strategies and execute on 22 markets in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the UK, as well as the recently launched alternative trading venue Chi-X.

'CA Cheuvreux's new algorithms deliver traders with superior execution capabilities in volatile markets, complementing its already diverse set of strategies available through our platform,' says Simon Barnby, director of global marketing communications at Fidessa. 'As markets evolve, our strategy is to continue to offer new and enhanced services to our growing number of buy-side clients.'

Fidessa LatentZero EMS is available as a stand-alone workstation or as a fully integrated order and execution management service.

Minerva OEMS expands the EMS Workstation by providing cross-asset class management, real-time P&L, portfolio slice and dice, what-if analysis, order creation and workflow management, all with integrated compliance.
