Global Execution and Outsourced Trading Services
CF Global extends the in-house dealing function with institutional execution services by providing seamless connectivity to our broad broker network and multiple electronic venues.
Our clients access an independent, global buyside trading desk that can work orders anonymously across diverse liquidity pools to minimize impact and support best execution. One connection unlocks significant cost savings and performance improvements which are backed by data-driven analysis.
CF Global also offers customized outsourced trading solutions which include
Fully outsourced: an integrated global trading team working across Asia, Europe and the Americas
Hybrid outsourced: extend dealing coverage of a central team, for example with a regional desk, an additional asset class or late-hours coverage
Global execution go-to partner: a liquidity channel to multiple brokers and holiday cover for a lean internal trading team
CF Global trades international equities on behalf of global asset managers. Clients value our differentiation as a trading partner, rather than a broker: we face the Street as buyside, providing broker-neutral and non-conflicted execution. Our services help clients reduce trading costs, improve execution quality and address regulatory obligations.
CF Global UK brings deep buyside experience to global bond trading. Our fixed income business leverages our independent model to trade everything from G20 government and investment grade corporate bonds through to high-yield and emerging market bonds.
CF Global offers a range of derivative services to portfolio managers, analysts and traders. Clients value our options expertise, as well as our ability to seek capital commitment pricing through a wide network of market makers. Our trade structuring service will help find the most efficient and appropriate trade for overlay, hedging, or leveraged directional views.
CF Global offers private securities execution services for institutional investors. We access crossing networks for late-stage, venture-backed pre-listing companies and provide a private agency broker service for our network of institutional clients.
Our Services Include
Pre-trade compliance checks. Trade optimization tools. Post-trade regulatory reporting. Clients leverage with CF Global the infrastructure, experience and data management of an established institutional trading desk. Orders hit our global blotter for immediate monitoring by traders who execute with discretion or to accommodate specific client instructions.
Our network spans 300 brokers and 50+ electronic destinations both dark and lit, including systematic internalisers, sell-side algorithms and cash desks. As funds cut their lists, we've done the opposite to give clients access to liquidity across 64 markets without maintaining their own connections.
We step past tick-box TCA to analyse trends with our clients so that they can demonstrate a ‘feedback loop’ as we look for ways to improve the execution process – a regulatory imperative. Ask us how we support investor due diligence as well.
We provide a single contact for settlement and reconciliation to simplify communication between the fund and back office staff at multiple counterparties. Services include electronically matching trades, uploading custodian files and pre-matching orders. Our global operations team embeds in the operations process as much as a fund wishes, reflecting trust in our team to manage a customer’s post-trade procedure correctly.
CF Global demonstrates robust regulatory compliance through a sound internal program as well as oversight by external consultants in each jurisdiction. Compliance functions are performed locally in each region and include MAR and AML checks.
CF Global is subject to regulatory controls in each of our operating regions. We handle both RTS 28 and assisted transaction reporting for asset managers with MiFID II obligations.
We’ve managed client broker commission payment pools such as CSA’s for more than 20 years, helping clients simplify process and save time. For asset managers that need to demonstrate MiFID II separation of payment for research from payment for execution, we’re an FCA-authorised RPA administrator.
Our Service Level Agreement sets out detailed protocols that cover the entire trade life cycle, from order transmission through to reconciliation and management reporting. The framework underpins clear communication in genuine partnership as part of a regular review program.
