Designated Market Makers

Designated Market Makers (DMMs) are among the most active traders on NYSE and NYSE Amex. DMMs are obligated to facilitate price discovery and act as dedicated liquidity providers contributing to more narrowly quoted spreads, deeper markets and greater price stabilization.

Our Founder, Chairman and CEO, Vincent Viola, began his career as a local market maker on the floor of the New York Mercantile Exchange. This heritage and commitment to floor trading, combined with Virtu's cutting-edge, electronic market making platform, afford Virtu an unparalleled perspective on liquidity provision. We believe that recent and continuing advances in the distribution of price information and the increased number of market venues highlight the critical need for committed, regulated market makers across asset classes and geographies that fulfill concrete and meaningful obligations.
