Technology you can rely on to get connected.
Our proprietary technology and software established us as a new kind of brokerage – one whose global connectivity and service is unrivaled in the industry. Today, with the innovation, reliability and proven reputation of our software and systems, AK Jensen is positioned at the forefront of global institutional trading.
It’s called AKJ ExNet™ and it’s the heart of AK Jensen. Used by institutional clients in 37 countries for order routing and connectivity, it’s one of the most stable and fastest systems in the marketplace. Without knowing it, you may already be using AKJ ExNet™ through your current destination brokers.
We know you’ve got a way of doing things. You may have legacy systems and preferred trading system providers. That’s why AKJ ExNet™ is open and scalable, independent and flexible. You can select any of our system providers or have us connect to your preferred third-party system. And our back-end can be customized to deliver a single consolidated report in a format of your choice.
Let’s talk for a moment about the technology behind AKJ ExNet™.
You decide what trading system you’d like to use to place your orders. We can customize AKJ ExNet™ to interface with your existing trading and back-end systems. In fact, AKJ ExNet™ works with a wide array of trading systems and is compatible with most destinations, connectivity systems, price feeds and clearing agents.
All inputs and outputs can be translated into client or market-specific nomenclature. This means unique internal identifications can be easily translated to meet external requirements.
AKJ ExNet™ is structured to be independent, which means we will never sell order flow to intermediaries, or trade against a principal or agency book. We also allow you to connect to non-AKJ agency destinations and providers at no charge. With one connection you can trade on all markets, choose between different destinations, automate your own trading, rebalance, and offer remote access to your end-clients – without the burden of integration.
AKJ ExNet™’s reliability and flexibility has been field-tested and proven. It has provided global connectivity to institutional clients since 1998.
It reports in real-time.
Customers can choose to receive back office reports in real-time or at the end of the day via e-mail, file transfer or web access.
The transparency you need is now at your fingertips.
AKJ OpTracker™, our online back office portal, makes managing the post-execution process simpler than ever. Here’s how.
Log in securely via our website any time any place for all the information you need about your trades, including trade details, trade confirmations and commission management reports. You can even view your account details and allocate trades.
As soon as you log in, AKJ OpTracker™ presents you with a high level summary of your activities and account structure, including an account overview and your latest trade confirmations.
With a click of a button, all reports – whether they’re summary reports, general activity overview reports, commission rebate reports or commission sharing reports – can be viewed by market, date range, or currency of your choice.
AKJ OpTracker™ stores the details of all your executed trades, going back to your very first trade with us. You can search using different variables, such as trade or settlement date, currency, market or symbol. You can also download any trade confirmation in any format, including PDF and Excel.
Need your trade confirmations or reports to include an additional piece of information? Not a problem. Just ask. We can tailor reporting to fit your needs.
Want to eliminate network costs?
With AKJ ExNet™, you get the AKJ Network™ at no additional cost. Which means your life just got a little easier. Unlike other order routing software providers or connectivity networks, AK Jensen is not an intermediary. Because we generate our income on the execution side, much like a brokerage, our network is not a source of revenue.
Route orders to your own destination relationships through the AKJ Network™. Enjoy a single and consolidated middle office while we service and maintain your connectivity structure, including all your third-party connections and gateways.
Take advantage of a single, integrated back office for all your markets, brokers, connections and products. We will also deliver reports and confirmations from all your global destinations in custom formats that meet your portfolio system requirements. It’s all free.
And of course, you get all your connections in one, including FIX integration of your softing relationships; management and FIX reporting of your phone orders; FIX integration of your prime brokers; for-research brokers; and other non-AK Jensen agency execution providers.
Once you’re connected through AK Jensen, we can then complete your global reach by giving you access to selected destinations where you don’t hold memberships. We make our money back when you execute trades, so from time to time, just route a portion of your agnostic orders through our destination brokers, and we’ll be happy. How’s that for a fair trade?
