Certainty for brokers in uncertain times

This year has been a lesson to us all in learning to expect the unexpected. While engaging with clients in a different way has become part of our daily life at Linear, it hasn’t affected the services and solutions that we offer our clients or in fact the quality of our offering. We have worked with our clients to make sure that their experience with our team is exactly as they have come to expect: professional, efficient and effective.

Linear is a specialist award winning Multi Asset Execution, Prime Broker and Discretionary Fund Manager based in London, Hamburg and Dubai. Our integrated platform solution brings together all the skills, expertise and solutions you require in one place. With communication, security and speed of transaction more important than ever, the ability to transact business this way is proving essential to our clients worldwide.

Through our extensive network of providers, we are able to offer tier one services to clients by bringing to them low cost aggregated solutions. Whether you are a hedge fund manager, day trader or broker, Linear is ideally placed to provide you with access to the very best market solutions. Our global core services are designed to offer you, our client, the most efficient and cost-effective service available in the market.

One of the services we provide is in supporting our increasing network of day trading and High Frequency Trading clients who access our intraday trading services via our execution and prime brokerage platform. Typically, clients are trading high volume’s, so an efficient, reliable IT and technology stack are essential to deliver the low latency environment for these strategies to remain effective. We support this approach with our real time margin and market surveillance tools, which are monitored by our risk and compliance teams respectively.

Cost and leverage are also key factors which we manage through our established relationships with our Tier one execution and prime brokers.

We offer directed trading access (no internalisation) to global exchanges, both Lit and Dark. This includes access to over 25 exchanges in the US based upon a cost-plus model, whereby we can directly pass back to our clients any rebates/costs based upon their order flow.

Where clients would normally work with FIX 4.2 to direct their trading flow to Linear, we are also certified with a number of 3rd party trading platform providers such as Refinitiv Trading, FIS Trading solutions, Infront AS, TradingScreen and most recently Sterling Trader Tech, whose platform we are delighted to add to our growing partnerships.

Linear understands what our clients need, and we ensure our account management and sales teams alongside our 24/6 in house trading desk are on hand to guide you through uncertain times.
