ICAP, part of TP ICAP group, is a leading markets operator and provider of execution and information services. The Group matches buyers and sellers in the wholesale markets in interest rates, credit, commodities, foreign exchange, emerging markets and equity derivatives through voice and electronic networks.
ICAP's businesses are based fundamentally on connecting customers through its wholesale financial networks. There are three primary pillars to ICAP's business; hybrid voice broking, electronic markets and information services.
What we do:
Electronic and voice broking
ICAP uses voice broking or electronic networks to bring buyers and sellers together, facilitating price discovery and receiving a commission when a transaction is entered into. In many of the markets where ICAP operates, voice brokers help to create liquidity and facilitate the price discovery process.
Voice broking is particularly important in non-standardised, bespoke markets where the number of parties willing to enter certain transactions may be limited. In more standardised markets with higher and more frequent participation, such as spot FX and government bonds, ICAP operates electronic broking platforms. ICAP's combined solution offers access to markets across all asset classes and levels of liquidity.
ICAP information empowers customers to make trading decisions with authoritative, independent and consistent OTC market information, across a range of asset classes. Our data is the intelligence behind algorithmic trading and research models for customers and it is a key source of mark-to-market data for the industry.
ICAP's businesses are distributed across more than 70 locations in 32 countries worldwide with a strong presence in all major financial centres in EMEA, the Americas and Asia Pacific.
