GETCO is a leading global market maker. We use technology and talent to help investors transfer risk in the most efficient ways possible. Order by order, we close the gap between buyer and seller, so trades happen faster and markets work better.
The need to transfer risk is the core driver of financial markets. Explore how risk is transferred at each point of a trade, and how GETCO helps make these transactions more efficient.
A market participant needs to turn one form of risk into another. For example, they may need to turn the shares of one company into shares of another, turn euros into dollars, or turn bonds into capital.
Both sides of the trades go through clearing, settlement and analytics to ensure a sound and secure transaction.
Using the prices listed by a market maker or another trader, the market participant locates the right counterparty.Related GETCO Services:
