On our trading platform, our prices update many times every second and we always look to give you the best price available. Our award-winning trading platform offers a revolutionary Price Improvement technology that automatically detects any favourable price changes that we may then pass on to you.
Sourcing the best price
Our trading platform uses Smart Order Router technology to source the best price available from multiple venues, including Multilateral Trading Facilities (MTFs). These MTFs can provide greater liquidity and therefore more competitive prices for you.
Improving your price
Prices update many times a second and it’s possible for the price to move in your favour as your trade is executed. Our platform’s innovative Price Improvement technology automatically detects any favourable price changes that can be passed on to you.
