Scotiabank and BestEx Research To Build Next Generation Algorithmic Trading Platform Specifically Designed for the Canadian Equities Market

BestEx Research Group, LLC, a provider of high-performance algorithmic execution and measurement solutions for equities, futures, and foreign exchange trading, announced a strategic agreement with Scotiabank to reshape electronic trading for Canadian equities. Scotiabank will be the only Canadian bank to provide access to this trading platform in the Canadian market through its cross-asset electronic suite of products, ScotiaRED.

“We are pleased to work with Scotiabank to provide clients with innovative execution algorithms that strengthen electronic trading performance across Canadian equities,” said BestEx Founder and CEO Hitesh Mittal. “Our mission is to provide a fully customizable service to buy- and sell-side clients and deliver solutions that target their specific needs and evolve with ever-changing markets.”

BestEx Research’s algorithms are built on research-driven, quantitative order placement logic, a departure from the heuristic-based approach of most providers and includes a cloud-based Algo Management System (AMS) that provides unprecedented transparency and control over orders in real time. This next-generation platform, expected to launch in the second quarter of 2022, will build on Scotiabank’s commitment to investment, performance, and best execution, featuring state-of-the-art technology designed to serve the unique needs of the Canadian market, rather than relying on execution algorithms originally designed for U.S. markets.
