Global Broking

TP ICAP's Global Broking division is the largest inter-dealer broker in the world.

We service clients in Rates, FX & Money Markets, Equities and Credit products.

As trusted partners with deep customer relationships, our brokers support trading strategies, identify potential trading interest, foster liquidity and facilitate price discovery. Market-leading technology platforms enable our brokers to incorporate large amounts of data and research into decisions.

Using their market knowledge and experience to observe and interpret events, precedents and probabilities, our brokers act decisively on real-time information to deliver the desired outcomes for our clients.

Our two core global broking brands, Tullett Prebon and ICAP, operate independently and compete with one another for the benefit of our clients. Both are recognised as world leaders in the broking sector.

The Liquidnet Credit business, including the Dealer to Client (D2C) proposition, is now led by Global Broking.

Energy & Commodities

Our global Energy & Commodities division operates in all major markets including oil, gas, power, renewables, ferrous metals, base metals, precious metals, soft commodities and digital assets

We offer our clients three distinct liquidity pools through three competing broking brands – Tullett Prebon, PVM and ICAP. 

Brokers assist across the value chain, from canvassing the market for expressions of interest, to intelligence gathering, negotiations and post-transaction processing. They also provide insights on the impact of unpredictable factors such as weather conditions, geopolitics and exchange rate movements.

Our businesses act solely as intermediaries – matching buyers and sellers – and focus on the quality of information, price discovery and trading liquidity they are able to bring to each client.
