Deep Bench with a High Level of Trading Expertise

Dalzell Trading has brought together highly skilled traders from the buy-side and sell-side to provide our clients with a unique solution to their equity and options trading needs. Our team includes former Heads of Trading at BlackRock and Janney, a Managing Director and head of several businesses from Goldman Sachs and Wells Fargo, and senior traders from BlackRock.

Our scope of experience gives us an unparalleled perspective of your trading needs. We are experienced in trading for virtually all types of managers, algorithmic trading, block trading, options trading, basket trading, protecting trades from predatory high frequency trading.

No two clients are alike, so Dalzell Trading provides our clients with custom-built trading solutions based on their specific needs. The range of our current client base varies from quant-based hedge funds to larger, long-only investment managers.

Our traders have covered their manager's needs during a wide range of market conditions, from severe corrections to benign markets, to bull markets. We are not the typical prime broker or sell-side trading desk where most of their traders may have less than five years of experience.

View Us as Your ALIGNED Buy-Side Trading Desk

At Dalzell Trading, we don't think of our Firm as "outsourced", but as a Firm ALIGNED with YOUR strategy and best interests.

We combine current trading technology with the skills of our highly experienced traders to tailor trade execution solutions that are specific to each client’s needs. We have created a client-focused approach at Dalzell Trading that fosters professional and close-knit trading relationships with each client. We ask "what is important to you?", we gain an understanding of your investment strategy and your desired trading outcomes, and then we develop trading strategies that work best for you.

This allows us to execute as your dedicated buy-side trading desk. We are an independent, conflict-free firm – this is unique in the world of outsourced trading. Our clients trade with anonymity as our counterparties only see Dalzell Trading executing trades. Additionally, we protect our client’s orders from information leakage as we do not “shop” orders to the street and we have no prop trading – further ALIGNING the interests of Dalzell Trading with our clients’ interests.

We will also act as an extension of existing buy-side trading desks who wish to keep their in-house traders. Traders can utilize our exclusive, proprietary trade execution venues & strategies. Additionally, managers who wish to have a robust DR/BCP are able to retain Dalzell Trading for complete trade execution services during disaster recovery or when traders are out of the office.

Regulatory Advisory Services

Our team of experienced professionals can provide unique solutions to many of the regulatory challenges that professional money managers face today.  We have advised and consulted for large institutional managers and start-up managers providing best execution policy and procedure, best trading practices, and compliance solutions.  Our experience providing solutions to clients in these areas gives us a unique value add for our clients.
