Whether it’s voice, care, DMA or wholesale, GTP allows you to execute, supervise and most important keep your clients informed in real-time. Our highly customizable views enable all audiences within a firm to interact and intervene when necessary.
Execute smarter with advanced tools
GTP includes a suite of trading tools made for today’s complex execution landscape, enabling traders to act on-market with minimal market impact and slippage.
The platform contains 20+ special order types, from event-driven contingents to benchmark algorithms. There’s no need for you to manually send orders when a condition is reached. GTP also offers market data, desktop, and gateway APIs.
No matter how large the order or sophisticated the algorithm, GTP shows you every associated event to give you a complete view of how the execution transpired.
In-flight and post-trade analytics provide insight into order performance and document best execution. Order and trade data can be used for both-real time and historical transaction reporting, keeping you compliant.
A user experience you customize and control
GTP can deploy FFastFill, GT, ION Trader, Mixit, Patsystems as well as third party screens.
Create screen views and workflow shortcuts to exactly match you or your clients’ execution approach. Access to tools and features can be controlled to only give them what’s relevant to their needs.
GTP includes all the administration tools you need, from margin and risk controls to user group and role management.
Rolling a screen out to a client is as simple as sending a link and login credentials. Users can be up and trading in a matter of minutes.
