Hedge Funds' Top Equity Trading Firms

Alpha’s Top Trading Firms ranking shows that in a world where trading is increasingly electronic, the human touch still matters.

Goldman, Sachs & Co. handily earns top honors in Alpha’s first annual ranking of the world’s top equity trading firms, based on an exclusive survey of nearly 300 hedge funds that rely on their services.

This summer’s market turbulence — and record trading volume — was a sometimes painful reminder for hedge fund managers that the best electronic systems sometimes fail and that there is no substitute for the market color and insight that human traders can provide. The firms that score well in Alpha’s ranking all provide a strong mix of human interaction and tech savvy. Alpha’s ranking indicates that Goldman has struck the best balance of the two qualities in the eyes of its clients.
