Execution & Dealing Services (I-DEAL)

The buyside is faced challenges like never before in execution.

Regulatory constraints such as MiFID II, a fragmented liquidity environment and growing pressure on costs have made the execution environment more challenging than ever.


I-DEAL, SGSS’ dealing and execution solution, is a fully outsourced dealing desk covering the entire value chain, from order reception to middle office support services, across all market places and all asset classes, thus allowing buy-side companies to improve their efficiency and agility while addressing a triple challenge:

  • Selecting the market representation model best suited to their needs (« agency » or « principal »)

  • Monitoring and improving execution performance

  • Increasing their business capacity

In short, all your transactions are executed by SGSS with market counterparties, both for execution and for delivery against payment.

I-DEAL is part of CrossWise, our turnkey fully integrated front-to-back outsourcing solution:
