Barx does online equity structured note trading

Barclays Capital has expanded its electronic trading platform to offer secondary market liquidity in all the bank’s equity structured note offerings.

Barx (Barclays automated real-time execution) clients can now trade equity structured notes online as well as access secondary market prices, trade ideas and research, says Barclays Capital. “As the Barclays Capital platform has expanded over the last five years we’ve seen a huge up-tick in the amount of structured notes that we’re selling to private banks and to third-party retail distributors. With those increasing volumes, we need to focus on the service we provide our clients as much as pricing and innovation,” says Giles Rothwell, Barclays Capital’s London-based head of investor solutions.

Click and trade

Users of the system, which will not be end retail buyers themselves but rather private banks and other intermediary distributors, can “click and trade” on a broad range of underlying securities. The bank estimates it has close to 1,000 equity contracts listed that are now tradable. Rothwell says the expansion of Barx to include equity structured note trading should make both the bank and its customers’ businesses more efficient.
