FinanceFeeds Editorial Team

The FinanceFeeds Awards 2023 recognised the remarkable contributions of 26 Degrees Global Markets awarding them the prestigious title of “Outstanding Liquidity Solutions.”

In an environment where traditional bank owned Prime Brokers are facing into regulatory changes , 26 Degrees Global Markets has emerged as a shining example of innovation, reliability and excellence in the prime services industry. 

Whilst the broader prime services industry is in a state of flux, 26 Degrees has stood firm, demonstrating an unwavering dedication to offering a diverse range of quality multi-asset prime brokerage solutions that differentiates them from their competitors, according to the esteemed panel of judges. 

After a decade in the industry, the company recently repositioned itself with a new name (formerly Invast Global) and renewed focus with a clear strategy and resolve to make the most of the opportunities the changing landscape presents. The rebranding to 26 Degrees Global Markets in June 2023 coincided with their ten-year anniversary, a milestone that warranted a review resulting in an exclusive focus on serving broker dealers, emerging hedge funds and family offices affected by the growing scarcity of Tier 1 prime facilities, services and support.

With a global presence and an unmatched understanding of the market, 26 Degrees provides reliable, bespoke, high-quality access to prime services. This award for Outstanding Liquidity Solutions is a testament to their ability to thrive amidst broader industry challenges.

Aggressive pricing and robust executions are the hallmark of 26 Degrees’ liquidity offering and are delivered from a core foundation of highly resilient, low latency price delivery. World-class trading infrastructure is deployed to ensure clients of 26 Degrees have access to multi-asset trading environments across LD4, NY4 and TY3. This global infrastructure footprint allows 26 Degree to provide complete multi-site redundancy for both pricing and execution as well as optimising network routes for optimal speed of quote delivery, something that sets them apart from many peers.

One of the standout qualities of 26 Degrees is their commitment to transparency and informed decision-making. They offer their clients pre-trade and post-trade Transaction Cost Analysis (TCA) tools, providing insights for data-informed trade executions and workflow optimisations. This commitment to empowering clients with information underscores their belief in building relationships based on trust and transparency.

Global reach, prestige touch

With a global presence spread across Sydney, Cyprus and Tokyo, 26 Degrees is well-equipped to serve global clients with a multi-lingual team that spans both time zones and bridges cultural divides. 

Their commitment to personalised service, data-driven solutions, and forward-thinking approach is an example of excellence in the prime services sector. As the financial landscape continues to evolve, 26 Degrees remains steadfast in its mission to empower clients, drive innovation, and shape the future of prime services.
