Outsourced trading

Outsourced trading can be a strategic extension of your current trading capabilities and an opportunity to minimize the overhead costs of trading. Additionally, it can be used as a way to delegate middle- and back-office functions. At State Street, we use our scale, experience and robust technology platform to offer a multi-asset class outsourcing solution that supports the entire trade lifecycle.

Our solution offers 24/6 global trading, industry-leading analytics and local market experts in every region, while open architecture means seamless integration and smooth, accurate data flows. So you can confidently pursue nearly any opportunity in any market ꟷ without heavily investing in infrastructure or adding to your team.

When it comes to trading services, there really is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution. Whether you’re looking for a complete outsourced trading solution or more targeted support to help expand your reach or supplement your current operations, our trading services are custom-tailored to fit where you need them most, with low-touch, modular or full service options.
