London, February 26, 2016 – Object Trading is honoured to announce, that once again, Wall Street Letter (WSL) has recognized Object Trading in the distinguished Institutional Trading Awards for Best Direct Market Access (DMA) Offering.
The Wall Street Letter Institutional Trading Awards recognise excellence among providers to the institutional trading industry, awarding brokerage firms, exchanges and financial technology companies for achievements and innovation over the last year. Based on evaluations by a panel of carefully selected industry experts, the WSL Awards recognize achievements and innovations among providers to the institutional trading industry. Object Trading received the Best DMA Offering award based on the continued development of its independent and trusted infrastructure, positive impact on the market, and demonstrable client satisfaction.
Object Trading delivers sell- and buy- side firms and technology providers a single gateway for connecting to global trading venues. Within its suite of products, Object Trading offers Direct Market Access (DMA) – market data, order execution and pre-trade risk constraints – through an independent and trusted infrastructure that readily normalises the mass of market connectivity, eliminates infrastructure startup processes and unifies risk constraints, ultimately enabling accelerated growth. These solutions allow users to create a bespoke trading solution around their market access with comprehensive, inline risk constraints. Object Trading is connected to more than 60 global equity, derivative and FX exchanges for both market data and order routing, with offices in London, New York, Chicago and Sydney.
Anna Lyudvig, Editor, Wall Street Letter said, “The competition has been increasing every year which makes it especially impressive that Object Trading has won for the second year in a row. In our “Best DMA Offering” short list, there were five world class organizations, each having won numerous awards previously. .These are never easy decisions, but what especially helped us select Object Trading was its impressive growth in the notional trading across its platform, from $135B at the beginning of 2015 to $150B at the end of 2015.”
Steve Woodyatt, CEO of Object Trading said, “We are honoured that Wall Street Letter has conferred this award upon Object Trading for the second year in a row, recognizing our global DMA Service Platform and our dedication to our clients’ successes. With the growing number of FCMs already certified on the platform, and complete flexibility to both customer and clearer, the buy-side enjoys greater control, and faster on-boarding to broker services; whilst the sell-side can offer high performance access with simplified compliance and no up-front technical investment. The global trading environment is constantly changing with evolving regulatory obligations, relentless exchange innovation, and increasing broker specialization. In 2016, the buy-side and the sell-side will continue to find creative solutions to benefit from the global rise of futures volumes. Buy-side clients on the Object Trading platform have the ability to choose specialist FCMs that serve their account size, leverage requirements, geographical, and asset class needs. This means greater scalability to access a wider range of exchanges and traded contracts.”
