Smart Order Routing

As sources of liquidity proliferate professional investors need more intelligent execution tools.

Citi’s Smart Order Router (SOR) adapts to differing market structures, regulatory frameworks and liquidity specifications to connect with a wide range of local exchanges and alternative venues.

The system queries the full depth of order books from ECNs, exchanges and other liquidity sources. It has direct, swift connections to multiple markets and order entry systems. Our patented technology integrates all this into a single execution interface that transmits orders to market venues. Trades are routed according to pre-determined execution criteria.
