There's a better way to access global markets.
It's called AKJ ExNetTM and it's the heart of AKJ. 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 ExNetTM 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 ExNetTM 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 ExNetTM.
You can't go wrong with a system built on an open architecture. AKJ ExNetTM is scalable and designed to serve your institutional trading needs, from the moment the order is entered to the moment the order is cleared. It's designed to connect easily to any client/market/product without forcing any changes or special programming.
Moreover, unlike other order routing software or network providers, AKJ is not an intermediary. We provide you with the software and technology so you can get true STP connections that are integrated with the main line providers (we are, after all, partially owned by Transaction Network Services (NYSE:TNS), one of the world's major communications providers). We generate our income on the execution side, much like a brokerage.
You decide what trading system you'd like to use to place your orders. We can customize AKJ ExNetTM to interface with your existing trading and back-end systems. In fact, AKJ ExNetTM 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 ExNetTM 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 ExNetTM's reliability and flexibility has been field-tested and proven. AKJ ExNetTM has provided global connectivity to institutional clients since 1998.
Continuous, uninterrupted connectivity is ensured through a fully duplicated system controlled via automatic switch. In the event of a technical problem, the switch from one system to another will not impact the end-user, meaning trading and information flow is never interrupted.
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.
