Citi launches Total Touch equities trading offering in Europe

RELATED TOPICS​

Citi is launching Total Touch, its block equities offering designed to make it more efficient for institutional investors to execute block trades in the European market.

Total Touch products already support over 3,000 securities worth USD20bn in the Americas, linking the value-added services associated with high-touch, or voice, trading with the convenience of electronic execution.
 
“The evolution in the European equity markets creates an opportunity to add more sophisticated trading practices to the region,” says Steve Garrard, head of execution services for Citi in EMEA. “Leveraging Citi’s execution capabilities and local footprint, we are able to respond to client demands for electronic execution with price protection and ultimately help prevent slippage in fast moving situations.”
 
Initially, Total Touch will support approximately 560 symbols across European equity markets.
 
Total Touch re-aggregates liquidity at the block level, making it easier for institutional investors to execute large orders at better prices.
 
“The European equities market is at a crucial and unique phase in its evolution,” says Sean Shanker, Citi’s global head of Total Touch products. “The intersection of experienced human trader expertise and robust electronic capabilities creates an opportunity for market participants to take advantage of a unique approach to trading.”
