Boston, May 1, 2014 – Increased market competition has defined global equities markets for well over a decade, and innovation in the alternative trading system market continues undeterred. Four new venues—Aquis Exchange, IEX Group, Thomson Reuters Block Connect, and Tripleshot—have staked their reputations as the next generation of electronic equities venues.

This Impact Note profiles four new ATS competitors that are shaking up the ATS status quo and highlights their innovations. The piece is based on qualitative interviews with new ATSs as well as feedback from leading broker-dealers and buy-side firms.
