Horizon Software, a provider of market making and algo trading technology, has expanded its electronic trading platform to include market making and agency trading functions in one single platform, powered by its algo framework.
Initially designed for market making and algo trading services, Horizon is now bringing agency trading to the next level, by leveraging its expertise in latency, scalability and sophisticated algo and execution strategies to banks and brokers.
With advanced functionalities in high touch, DMA, DSA and global order routing for equity and global derivatives, Horizon enables banks and institutional and retail brokers to meet the trading challenges of today and tomorrow.
Clients using Horizon for their Market Making are now expanding towards client order flow and execution through one single platform, optimising their running cost and implementing cross businesses logic such as Internalisation or Central Risk Book. Moreover, with Managed Services and Hosting, Horizon acts as a one-stop shop and takes ownership of upgrades, monitoring, configuration, and full users support.
Sylvain Thieullent, CEO at Horizon Software, says: “In today’s highly competitive and regulated environment, financial institutions must handle most of their order volume automatically, while still having the ability to work larger orders with care where required. At the same time, they also need to be continuously refining their market making approach to reflect technical advancements.
“Our highly automated hybrid agency and market making trading platform scales across asset classes and geographies to provide high touch and DMA functionality required to meet demands for high quality service from clients.”
