Industry: Financial

ATX GROUP has announced the launch of AT-SYSTEM, a trading algorithm that enables the implementation of multiple portfolio level instructions such as risk neutralization and cash balancing. Using over 56 different risk metrics, AT-SYSTEM optimizes execution at the portfolio level by taking into account correlations between assets, as well as volatility and projected market impact. The result is better overall execution and risk management. AT-SYSTEM also offers traders improved performance by reducing the variance of execution costs. With this launch, buy-side traders can directly access the new portfolio-trading algorithm used by ATX GROUP's Portfolio Trading desk.

"The addition of AT-SYSTEM to our constantly evolving suite of algorithms underscores our commitment to providing our clients with a complete set of trading tools and solutions to manage their global execution needs," said Alexander Hutton, Managing Director at ATX GROUP.

AT-SYSTEM supports futures, options and exchange-traded funds, and accesses venues in all major markets in line with ATX GROUP's liquidity philosophy. In addition, AT-SYSTEM offers clients the ability to analyze each step in the lifecycle of the trade by seamlessly integrating with MS Analytics, ATX GROUP's industry-leading, multi-asset analytics platform.

Clients can access AT-SYSTEM through ATX GROUP trading platform or through a vendor partner and can execute trades themselves or with the support of the Firm's experienced Electronic or Portfolio Trading teams. AT-SYSTEM is currently available in Asia and in The Americas and will be available in Europe by the beginning of the next year.

ATX GROUP Electronic Trading provides a complete spectrum of services, from pre-trade analytics and execution to post-trade execution performance analysis and commission management. AT-SYSTEM offers a comprehensive algorithmic trading suite and various direct market access strategies, including our smart order routing technology and our dark pool aggregator.
