ESG offerings

Exegy, ING, and Optiver have joined Sustainable Trading, a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) practices in the global markets trading industry.

They join a prestigious global membership network of investment managers, banks, brokers, exchanges, trading platforms and service providers committed to improving the sustainability of global markets.

Sustainable Trading will launch survey at TradeTech EMEA

Following the completion of the first phase of work, members are now making important progress as they implement the Sustainable Trading Best Practices and use the associated measurement framework to track progress, and benchmark themselves against peers.

Exegy is a global provider of real-time trading technology, ING is a Netherlands-headquartered global financial institution, and Optiver, a global market maker. The addition of these big names to Sustainable Trading follows the recent appointment of Eleni Coldrey of Equinix, Asha Patel of Instinet, and Ebrahim Patel of RMB to its Board.

Soon, Sustainable Trading will launch an industry-wide survey at TradeTech EMEA, in collaboration with Global Trading (formerly Best Execution), to gather insights into the experiences of employees working in the global trading industry.

“Their participation further strengthens our collective efforts”

Duncan Higgins, Founder and CEO of Sustainable Trading, said: “We are delighted to welcome Exegy, ING, and Optiver to our membership network. Their extensive experience of global markets, and common commitment to driving a more sustainable future for the financial industry, will bring invaluable insights to Sustainable Trading. Their participation further strengthens our collective efforts to drive positive industry change and greater sustainability in the global markets trading industry.”

Brian Pomraning, CRO of Exegy, commented: “We’re pleased that Exegy will stand alongside Sustainable Trading’s distinguished membership with the collective mission to drive positive change within the financial services industry. Together through collaboration and innovation, we’ll strive to contribute to a brighter and sustainable future for all.”

Gary Prince, Head of Financial Markets, EMEA at ING, added: “At ING, sustainability is a key part of our strategy; we’re excited to join Sustainable Trading because we’re passionate about shaping the future of finance and being part of their growing membership across the financial sector trading community. We look forward to continuing to improve in the ways we integrate sustainability throughout our trading business and harnessing the power of capital to drive positive change.”

Niall Quann, Global Sustainability Officer at Optiver, commented: “At Optiver, we view sustainability as fundamental to our operations, and we apply the same entrepreneurial mindset that drives our business to our sustainability goals. As the first market maker invited to join Sustainable Trading, we look forward to collaborating with the other members and bringing our unique perspective as a liquidity provider to this influential community.”
