Dalzell Trading, the outsourced trading firm opened this year by David Dalzell, has selected LiquidityBook’s Outsourced Trader portfolio, order and execution management system to support its provision of US equity and options trading to emerging and established hedge funds and investment managers. According to Dalzell, the firm selected the LiquidityBook web-based platform on the basis of its flexibility and ease of management.
Dalzell explains: “Over the course of my career, both at BlackRock and later while running my own consulting firm, I’ve led or been a part of dozens of OMS reviews. LiquidityBook’s platform is one of the best I’ve come across, with its web-based model providing significant cost, management and accessibility advantages. Its ability to seamlessly conform to our clients’ workflows – EMS/OMS integration, regulatory and clearing firm reporting needs and so on – is also a huge benefit for a firm like ours that lacks massive in-house IT resources.”
Sean Sullivan, chief revenue officer at LiquidityBook, comments: “Dave is one of the most respected buy-side traders in the business. He and his team have spent their careers working with some of the biggest names in the industry to develop and implement best execution policies and procedures. The ability for managers to tap their expertise on an outsourced basis should be invaluable, as alpha preservation by the trading desk is more vital than ever.”
