Why Instinet

Innovation is fundamental. Trust is essential. 

Since Instinet’s beginning, setting new standards for innovation in trading technology has been what has set us apart. But relationships have always been at the core of our business.

At the heart of these relationships is something that’s getting rarer in today’s complex and competitive markets: trust. We’ve been building trust and technology hand in hand for over 50 years, always working in our clients’ best interest, innovating to meet their real-world needs, and backing it up with consistent and impartial service.


Our approach

We operate with a client-first approach that’s focused on optimizing workflow and performance in every phase of the trade life cycle. It’s built on robust and adaptive technology
and decades of experience fine-tuning our capabilities to a constantly-shifting marketplace and the evolving objectives of our clients.

As part of the Nomura Group, we connect our clients to our comprehensive services as an agency-model* broker, electronic trading resource, and technology provider, as well as to the multi-asset Global Execution Services network.
