Welcome to a different kind of brokerage.
AKJ is a unique hybrid – both brokerage and software company. But we couldn't be one without the other.
Our brokerage origins give us the knowledge, experience and insight to connect our clients - both DMA and hedge funds - with the global markets, products and liquidity they need. Our proprietary technology and software savvy allow us to customize our clients' global order routing structures and reduce latency and market impact.
We're also independent and flexible. Which means we're free from the bias, cronyism or reciprocal interests that would keep us from getting our clients the best possible access to global liquidity.
Our Business Model
Seventeen years ago, AKJ was founded on a radical idea: that pursuing the client's best interest was in our best interest. The economics were simple. Create a viciously healthy cycle by attracting as many clients as possible with high-end technology, low-cost, efficient routing, a one-stop back office, and wide access to global liquidity.
More clients meant higher volumes, which led to lower prices, more intelligent technology, and an ever-expanding routing network, which in turn attracted more clients.
Today, that cycle continues, with satisfied institutional clients in over 37 countries -- the main investment banks and hedge funds in the world. In addition we provide the Accelerator; a turnkey, tier-one hedge fund platform that allows the emerging hedge fund manager to focus on his investors and performance leaving the hassle and distractions to us. We continue to do what it takes to provide global solutions for our clients because our clients are our lifeline.
