The markets in which we operate are changing, as are the demands of our customers. We anticipate these changes and adapt our business accordingly to capitalise on the opportunities change breeds. Our strategic framework has three core pillars:
Electronification and technology: We will add value by improving the efficiency of our client-facing services and internal operations. New technology will benefit our clients, from onboarding new customers, to streamlining the trade lifecycle.
Liquidity aggregation: We are the world’s largest inter-dealer broker by revenue and will remain a global leader by using technology to improve market depth – specifically, our clients’ ability to access, and interact with, the liquidity available across the Group’s separate and competing brands.
Diversification: We will continue to invest in our data-led solutions. We are already a leading provider of OTC data, we aim to build on this to grow our presence in the institutional market by investing in COEX Partners, our Agency Execution business.
People, conduct and compliance underpin all that we do. We will continue to recruit, retain and develop best-in-class talent and provide a workplace that supports innovation, professional development and a robust culture of conduct and compliance.
To ensure independent oversight of our Group we have put in place rigorous governance structures and procedures. The Board meets regularly and operates a number of committees with detailed terms of reference.
