NEW YORK, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- UNX LLC, a leading provider of innovative trading technology solutions, is now offering access to Credit Suisse's acclaimed equity algorithms and electronic trading services through UNX's Catalyst® Portal and EMS.

Catalyst users also can access Credit Suisse's internal crossing network, Crossfinder, the #1 alternative trading system (ATS) in the U.S. by volume matched.  Clients can send orders to Crossfinder directly, or through any trading strategy offered by Advanced Execution Services (AES), Credit Suisse's suite of algorithmic trading strategies, tools, and analytics.

The AES suite now offers individual algorithms that support core strategies, as well as more specialized tactical, portfolio, conditional and dark strategies, including Guerilla, Sniper, Pathfinder and Reserve.

"We are pleased with the speed and ease of the entire deployment process using Catalyst's revolutionary open technology, and look forward to harnessing the UNX SDK to increase our breadth of content and offerings."

"Credit Suisse AES is a major global provider of liquidity and algorithmic trading strategies, so UNX is excited to welcome them into our broker distribution network," states UNX CEO Thomas Kim.  "And now that they're onboard, our 'plug and play' technology gives them the ability to add additional content and updates whenever they want — putting them in the driver's seat."
