Integrated Dealing Services (I-DEAL)

The buyside faces 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.

The solution is Integrated Dealing Services (I-DEAL) – a fully outsourced dealing desk offer provided by SGSS, which covers all asset classes and global markets and allows the buy-sides to gain in efficiency and agility while taking up a three-fold challenge: 

  • Maintaining the link between management and the market
  • Controlling and improving execution performance
  • Boosting the business capacity

In short, SGSS assumes an agent mode position while remaining broker neutral.
