GETCO began as a registered market maker, and that practice remains at the core of our business today. We provide liquidity for continuous two-sided markets, posting both buy and sell orders in thousands of securities on major exchanges around the world.
We built our technology and our understanding of how to interact with various forms of liquidity with the intent of facilitating transparent, liquid, and orderly markets. These tools and principles have allowed us to offer robust, best-in-class services to our partners, and drive GETCO’s continuing, superior performance.
Market makers provide a very valuable service to the global investment community, decreasing volatility, assisting in price discovery, and lowering the costs of risk transfer. To learn more about the vital role market makers play in today’s markets, please visit What is a Market Maker.
