Pershing, a BNY Mellon company, has introduced a new multi-asset class trading execution solution Nexus Execution Services for private client firms. The new offering provides integrated agency execution through Pershing's proprietary technology platform Nexus.

Nexus Execution Services enables financial professionals to trade multiple asset classes through a single platform. The trading solution provides agency execution across global equities, exchange traded funds, exchange traded commodities, investment trusts, global government and corporate bonds and foreign exchange.

Nexus Execution Services is designed to offer clients a simple order entry via a single desktop ‘route to Pershing trader’ option and 24 hour coverage by Pershing trading services desks located in London and the US, staffed by over 100 sales and trading personnel covering multiple global time zones.

The solution provides streamlined trading, clearing and settlement services including algorithmic trading and straight-through processing.

Michael Horan, director and head of trading services at Pershing, said: “We are committed to providing superior services for our clients and we’re pleased to be able to now offer Nexus Execution Services as part of that commitment. Through Nexus Execution Services, we’ll build on that service by providing a cost-effective trading solution that truly gives our clients global reach.”

Sandra Blease, head of trade execution at Standard Bank, said: “The timely and accurate execution of trades is critical. Pershing’s highly professional team consistently delivers the service that we need to help grow our business.”
