We look to minimise market impact and provide privacy both by using dark pools and by blending orders into the market alongside others from our extensive global customer base.
Local Market Approach
Trading in localised markets allows Makor to consistently secure the best possible price and market representation for our clients.
Smart Order Routing
Through our proprietary smart-order routing technology, we are able to access liquidity on both dark and lit venues. Our SOR applies an advanced, real-time decision-making process to ensure best execution, cost, price and liquidity are provided.
Our Sales Traders' expertise in localised markets, combined with their understanding of the factors driving price movements and market impact, enable us to deliver timely advice on implementation strategy.
We provide our clients with a single point of access for over 90 execution venues spread throughout all global markets in Europe, the Americas, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
The combination of our global reach and deep understanding of localized markets worldwide, allows Makor to tap into a wide range of institutional portfolios and maximize liquidity for our clients, by which the cross rate increases while decreasing client market impact.
