CSFB's New Buyside Program

By Staff Reports

One of the biggest algorithmic trading firms on Wall Street is looking at more order flow from hedge funds. Credit Suisse First Boston (CSFB) plans to encourage this potentially lucrative volume with a new deal it signed with an electronic equity and option execution service firm.

This vendor, FutureTrade, has entered a strategic alliance with CSFB. Lake Forest, CA.-based FutureTrade will offer CSFB's Advanced Execution Services platform (AES) to FutureTrade's roster of hedge funds and institutional money managers. An official at FutureTrade said the firm has some 120 customer firms. Most of these are hedge funds. Manny Santayana, director of sales for AES, says CSFB will be able to offer "buyside traders an integrated, user-customizable means of accessing CSFB's global algorithmic trading platform."
