ETFs have grown rapidly in the last few years in terms of assets, volume and variety. The most popular ETFs now have significant secondary market liquidity and are increasingly used by financial institutions and hedge funds as core execution vehicles. However, ETFs are by definition complex to price, hedge and trade. You need to be fast and flexible to realize their full potential.

Orc Tbricks ETF solution offers market makers, arbitrageurs and traders a complete and highly extensible ETF setup across functionality, integration, pricing and visualization. Orc Tbricks' apps and server-based architecture enable lowest latency and true scalability.

Key Features

Orc Tbricks' fully server-based solution, built for co-location, with native connectivity to multiple markets, is ideal for ETF trading. From a single front end, you control trading and hedging across all markets, bringing scalability and transparency across your business and executions. The Orc Tbricks front-end can be completely customized for visualizing and controlling quotes, hedging, basket executions and pricing, to support complex ETF setups spanning multiple markets, time zones and underlying contracts (futures, baskets).

Orc Tbricks ships with specialized ETF apps for automatic quoting and hedging, covering instrument snapping, pricing logic, ETF updating, third party integration and all functionality required for a sophisticated ETF setup. However, if you want to customize your system by tweaking these apps, or even build bespoke apps based on ours, we ship them along with their complete source code for your convenience.

Orc Tbricks’ ETF solution is also complete with highly customizable manual click-trading, and risk and portfolio management.
