Virtu is the global leader in electronic market making. We actively make markets across a broad range of asset classes including equities, foreign exchange, commodities, options and fixed income, providing two-sided liquidity on over two hundred market centers around the world. As market makers, we lower costs for both retail and institutional investors by supplying competitive bids and offers, without seeking to take on risky directional positions. Virtu's liquidity provision plays a vital role in the overall health and efficiency of the global financial markets, especially in times of market turbulence.
Innovation + Technology
Virtu is successful because we focus not just on the trade but on every aspect of the "life cycle" of a trade, from market structure knowledge and execution technology to post-trade processing and relationship management. At the core of our business is the development of innovative, proprietary technology, designed to automate market making and post-trade activities. Virtu is the new model for a financial services company.
Virtu's corporate headquarters is located in New York with trade floors and development groups in North America, Europe and Asia. Each office is comprised of a complete team of traders, developers, risk managers and IT personnel fully able to focus on the growth and opportunities in their specific region.
