Execution Services

Wall Street Access Institutional Sales Traders offer execution services in listed, OTC, and foreign securities. We can act as either principal or agent, customizing our services in order to meet the diverse needs of our institutional clients. Our experienced trading team leverages our relationships to proactively source natural liquidity to lessen market impact, and decrease total transaction cost for our clients. We recognize the need to protect our client's order confidentiality and maintain their anonymity at all times. We consistently provide effective price discovery in thin markets as well as seamless execution in more liquid names. Our areas of expertise include merger arbitrage, convertible arbitrage, index enhancement, volatility arbitrage, and capital structure arbitrage.

Through our sophisticated trading platform, Wall Street Access strives to provide "Best Execution" on each and every trade. Wall Street Access is a member of NYSE, ISE, NASDAQ OMX, and a number of other exchanges around the globe. Our trade desk has redundant access to all ECNs, direct market access, and strong relationships with brokers and specialists on all option exchanges. Because we are privately held, we are able to route orders to the appropriate point of execution based solely upon our clients' needs. Our trading desk has been handling high-volume, large-quantity order flow for over 30 years. We have the knowledge and tools to effectively work orders with discretion while managing any guidelines an order may mandate. Our state-of-the-art order management system gives us full access to the marketplace utilizing various complex order types and access to trading algorithms where required or requested. Our traders are capable of handling the most complex orders in listed equity and index options sourcing liquidity for our clients in the most thinly traded securities.

Capital Requirements for IBDs

The number of broker dealers is virtually unchanged over the past five years, despite capital and compliance pressures, but that is about to change. With the clearing firms imposing new capital requirements, firms with less than $5 million of capital will be severely challenged to execute for clients.

We provide comprehensive investment management, financial planning and fund management solutions to an array of clients including private investors, institutions, pension plans, government funds, trusts, estates, foundations and endowments.
