JonesTrading announce opening of London office


JonesTrading Institutional Services are set to open a London office in order to expand their services to Europe.

Recent client demand has dictated a regional growth of the firm’s relationship based model for block trading and execution services, its ancillary capital market and independent research services.

JonesTrading CEO, Alan Hill, said: “We are poised to provide our block trading relationship based model to European institutions – both traditional asset managers and hedge funds. With the continued shifts in global market structure, our ability, consistently proven over decased, to access liquidty and build blocks designed to meet client intent is more essential than ever. Providing European clients with this capability will build our franchise, as we continue to align our interest solely with our clients”.

The firm has been an FCA registered broker since 2002, and hopes to have the London office fully operational by the second quarter of this year. The effort to expand the client base with a focus on cross border trading between Europe and the U.S. is being led by Gary Cunningham – who has more than three decades of experience in both UK and U.S. equities markets.

Within the last several years, JonesTrading has expanded its international footprint. It now includes global trading in the U.S. as well as trading Asia securities. A fully staffed London office appears to be the next logical step in continued international growth.
