Fully primed for even greater access to China’s mainland markets


London, 5 December 2016

itarle AG, the leading independent provider of multi-asset Algorithmic Trading, Smart Order Routing (SOR) and Transaction Cost Analysis (TCA) services, will be offering its suite of algorithmic best execution strategies on the Hong Kong - Shenzhen Connect from 5 December, 2016

We set a precedent by offering our algorithms on the HK - Shanghai Connect, and itarle is already fully active throughout the APAC region including Hong Kong and China A Shares.

Integrating with HK - Shenzhen represents itarle’s ongoing commitment to providing market-leading algorithmic trading services on all major global trading venues, using all possible connectivity channels to achieve best execution for clients’ trades.

Paul Lynch, CEO of itarle AG, commented “The Hong Kong - Shenzhen connect is undoubtedly a good thing for traders focussed on the APAC region, bringing even more transparency and liquidity to the Chinese mainland markets. There’s a good argument for higher trade volumes in both Hong Kong and Chinese-listed shares as a result, and we therefore anticipate higher demand for smart execution algorithms from clients that operate there.

Having fully operational best execution algorithms on the HK - Shenzhen Connect from day one is a logical step for those in the trading technology business, and we anticipate more such links in the coming months and years.”
