Integrated, Conflict-free Approach
With no proprietary trading desk to distract us, our program and block desks work hand-in hand, with the singular focus of preserving alpha and meeting our clients’ objectives. The philosophy of putting the client first is embedded in our organizational DNA.
From rigorous pre-trade analysis through post-trade assessment, each step in our trading process is designed to optimize our execution strategies and results. We are especially known for our expertise in successfully handling the difficult and illiquid trades that often make or break performance.
Our desk is staffed by a high number of seasoned program sales and trading professionals, as well as significant technology and programming support. We feel the separation between client and market facing duties provides the capacity and optimal balance necessary to implement complex trades in the fragmented global equity markets. Protecting our customers’ interests and anonymity are critical to delivering Best Execution.
Developing our proprietary global order management and execution technology in-house allows us to respond quickly to customer requests as well as adapt to ever changing market conditions. Through a blend of art and science, Weeden consistently delivers high crossing rates, minimal market impact, and outstanding execution quality and performance in program trading.
