International Equity

BV provides institutional global sales and trading solutions across the full life-cycle of a trade, supported by real-time access to the central limit order books at 22 stock exchanges in 16 European securities markets.  The BV global platform allows clients to “follow-the-sun” efficiently with FIX-enabled direct market access (DMA) to multiple European liquidity pools as well as cost effective settlement management systems.

Our platform satisfies the growing institutional demand for efficient international DMA, as well as the industry’s requirements for “best execution” practices, order audit trails (OATS) information and general market transaction transparency.

The global equities team implements trading strategies through a network of local brokerage relationships in all markets including Europe, South Africa and developed Asian markets. International clearing relationships with CA Cheuvreux, Societe Generale, Capital Institutional Services (CAPIS), HSBC and ABN AMRO give our clients 24-hour access to execution and settlement on every major exchange worldwide. We specialize in direct execution and step-out trades of international equities as well as advanced algorithmic strategies.
