POSIT is a leader in block crossing, helping traders anonymously source liquidity while minimizing market impact since 1987. POSIT delivers cost-effective execution and opportunities for price improvement, while employing Liquidity Guard*, a powerful and proprietary set of dynamic and scientific safeguards, to maintain liquidity quality.

Available in 35+ markets worldwide, POSIT is one of the deepest pools of institutional liquidity in the world. Offering seamless access through ITG Triton® and ITG OMS as well as major EMS and OMS providers, POSIT uses price/size pro rata matching logic (favoring size over speed) and offers only a few basic order types, thus reducing execution complexity.
