(This article originally appeared on Bloomberg)
KCG Holdings Inc., one of the top market makers who handle stock trades on behalf of retail brokerages, said the practice would work well in currencies, Treasuries and other assets.
“I think it’s a good model,” Coleman said during a conference call with analysts to discuss the company’s second-quarter earnings. “What I’d like to see over the next three to five years is this model expand beyond U.S. equity retail,” he said. “There could be specialists for executing other products, whether it’s FX or Treasuries or things beyond retail.”
KCG’s shares fell 2.2 percent to $14.02 at 2:18 p.m. New York time following the second-quarter earnings report.
