Sales, Trading & Execution Capabilities
With technology being a key driver of innovation and change in today’s financial markets, adapting to this environment and staying current has become ever more urgent. Hobart has expertise at this, which allows clients to concentrate on managing investments, rather than managing orders.
Hobart utilises the latest technology available, including sophisticated smart order routers and up-to-the minute algorithmic trading engines (both Benchmark-Driven and Trader-Defined) to route trades to a multitude of physical and/or electronic market places, including those that are fully automated.
Hobart’s order flow and execution management systems provide ultra-low latency connectivity, allowing us to offer an exemplary execution service, with a particular focus on UK and Pan European equities, given Hobart’s geographical location.
We access the quality of each trading venue and its suitability for a trade (see: Order Execution Policy), before deciding whether to execute on a particular venue, in accordance with MiFID ‘Best Execution’ guidelines and rules.
The team is well versed in a wide range of trading strategies, for example local execution with settlement in multiple portfolio currencies, Algorithmic trading, VWAP and TWAP orders, Pairs trading and executing complicated, multi-currency Program Trades.
We provide clients with FIX connectivity to route orders to us electronically, if they wish. This offers tremendous benefits, including greatly reducing the chances for trading errors, clients being able to access live trade updates, shortened processing cycles, reduced settlement risk and lower operational costs.
