A2ML said that one of its most important considerations when selecting its clearing partner is to be sure that it has the integrity of not market making against its clients. The company added that Blue Isle’s electronic communication network (ECN) and straight through processing (STP) structure is the best choice for a UK-regulated clearing firm.
Nicholas Edwards, CEO of A2ML, commented: “Blue Isle represented the logical choice for us as we geared up to select a new firm through which to trade. The company’s experienced management and strong suite of products combined with the fact that its prime broker backbone is a UK-regulated clearing firm right here in our backyard, are significant advantages.”
Michael Stewart, General Manager of Blue Isle, added: “The best aspect of being positioned as a boutique commercial prime of prime brokers is our ability to focus on client service. We provide unparalleled access to trade OTC exotics, augmenting spot and vanilla options – all at institutional pricing. We are honored to Serve A2ML, and are committed only to the highest level of client experience available.”
