Outsource Trading

Outsource Trading That Feels Like It's In-House.

BTIG's Outsource Trading desk replicates the functions and utility of an in-house global trading desk. Leveraging our infrastructure and expertise, investment managers can execute trades and monitor the portfolio, without the challenges associated with building and maintaining an in-house trading desk. At BTIG, we focus solely on trade execution so investment managers can do what they do best–identify new opportunities and manage current investments.

Our outsource traders average 16 years of execution experience. Through our collective experience, we are recognized for our ability to source natural liquidity and enter or exit the most sensitive positions with minimal market impact. We have access to a large global network of established buy and sell-side relationships, enabling us to discreetly execute large volume trades, while maintaining the confidentiality and anonymity of our clients at all times.

We take the time to get to know each client, to understand their objectives and personality before hand-selecting a team of dedicated traders best suited to meet their needs. Our clients benefit from extensive and robust market intelligence. BTIG's in house Research & Strategy provide an extensive array of market intelligence reports and updates. In addition to our in-house resources, BTIG's buy-side desk leverages our global broker network of 250 sell-side firms.

BTIG's Outsource Trading team is staffed in 5 strategic cities including San Francisco, New York, London, Hong Kong and Sydney. We offer the most comprehensive and established solution for global trading. Our global broker network allows our clients to pay brokers around the world when needed. Our traders work directly with the client portfolio managers and operating officers to manage broker commissions.

Our outsourcing services are customizable and fully scalable, according to the needs of each client. We can act as the sole trading arm, supplement an in-house trading desk, handle overflow on heavy trading days or provide coverage when in-house traders are not available. Because all trades are executed on an agency-focused basis, our interests are always aligned with those of our clients.

Our outsource clients also benefit from advanced technology including our Proprietary Web-Based Trade and Commission Tracking Technology, and our efficient order management system (BTIG OMS), allowing clients to connect directly to their trader's desk, communicate and enter or cancel trades in real time. BTIG also offers its outsource clients value-added services including Equity Derivatives, Global Portfolio and ETF Trading, Futures & Commodities, Foreign Exchange, Capital Introduction and Commission Management Services.
