The OREX range offers institutional traders the support they need whether they are asset managers, algo-traders or hedging for large corporates.

ADS Securities’ institutional product, Optim, offers exceptional execution and price, based on mix of bank, non-bank and unique regional liquidity which gives institutions access to multiple liquidity pools which can be aligned to their trading requirements.

All the solutions provide low latency trading with servers in all the main markets, including New York (NY4); London (LD4); Tokyo (TY3) and Paris. LD4 also hosts the ADSS European data centre.
