“We’re honored to receive this recognition because it represents direct input from market participants,” said Clearpool Group CEO, Joseph Wald. “Autonomy is truly a category breakthrough in the private label algorithmic trading space, and a great deal of effort by our technology team has gone into making it an offering that completely re-thinks how a trader can exercise complete control over their algorithms and benefit from full transparency into the routing and execution process.” Since its introduction last year, Clearpool has on-boarded 75 new clients of Autonomy.

Web-based Autonomy obviates the need for end-user development or a large investment in infrastructure by the client. Included with Autonomy are liquidity sourcing, schedule driven and dynamic/adaptive strategies, as well as agency executions across exchanges including dark and lit centers. Autonomy enables the sell-side to easily customize strategies, and deliver value and service in meeting the discrete trading and execution requirements of buy-side clients. Further control may be achieved by traders as they utilize Autonomy to select their own execution and order routing protocols, and provide a level of transparency their clients demand.

“While we do not solicit the buy-side,” said Clearpool Group President, Brian Schaeffer, “they are hearing about Autonomy, talking with us and subsequently leaning on their sell-side relationships to take a closer look at the technology.”

Autonomy was highlighted in a December 2015 report by Aite Group: “White-Label Execution Services: Next-Generation Vendors Fill the Gap”. A free copy may be obtained at the Clearpool home page: www.clearpoolgroup.com.
