Prime brokerage firm Shoreline Trading Group has announced that it is now providing its clients with access to overseas markets, including the Americas, Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa.
The New York-based firm specializes in prime brokerage and agency execution for emerging and established hedge funds.
“Due to the ongoing contraction and volatility in the domestic markets, U.S.-based asset managers are increasingly looking for access to international investment opportunities,” said Michael Murray, a partner at Shoreline Trading Group.
According to Murray, the firm’s clients benefit from its clearing and custody relationships with Goldman Sachs Execution & Clearing, JPMorgan and Credit Suisse Securities. Additionally, its clients now have direct market access to local markets through the firm’s affiliations with multiple executing brokers.
The new initiative, Global Prime Services, is supported by Shoreline’s client service teams in New York, Los Angeles and Santa Monica.
“Our firm has been built with a complete focus on client service and a commitment to providing our clients with the prime brokerage and agency execution tools they require to increase alpha,” said Murray. “Many opportunities today, for all investors without regard to capital under management, require access to global markets.
