Work

Seamless global execution

DCA has a specialised team providing execution services 24 hours a day, six days a week, delivering overnight execution and trade book management coverage for both buy and sell-side clients. The DCA team melts into existing infrastructure to deliver superior trading results for client firms and their customers.

On the sell side, DCA integrates completely into the FCM’s system and compliance framework. With full 24-hour visibility of activity and audit trail of chat, email, messaging, and voice calls as well as executed trades, cancellations and trade confirmations. We are completely aligned to the FCM – the FCM is DCA’s client and all client information stays with the FCM just as it would if trading were being carried out internally – but with less cost and risk, and more expertise.

Global sell- side Institutions using this service also enjoy the ability to promote their businesses in markets outside of their current geographical locations. We provide support for multiple trading desks within a global organization, with inter-desk anonymity. We also act as a support and service desk for end customers using the various execution platforms, as an extension of our clients’ own support facilities.

DCA’s utility desk service provides an avenue for internal staff to offset trade overflow. The service provides a single point of contact for clients that integrate into the firm’s after hours execution service, working in conjunction with the follow-the-sun model for multiple trade centres.

Clients wanting to develop, maintain or upgrade their own purpose-built solutions will also benefit from DCA’s expertise.

Business continuity

DCA provides a physically segregated and live solution to business continuity planning, ensuring that staff and clients have a 100% reliable execution desk in the event of a business-disrupting issue at firm level.
