In the late 1990’s, the advent of Alternative Trading Systems (ATS) and the adoption of decimalization forever changed the cash equity markets. Since that time, the equity markets have been among the most dynamic and evolutionary in the world. Dominated by revolutionary advances in technology, today’s equity markets demand a comprehensive understanding of the continually changing market structure landscape as well as the technology through which it is connected. Drexel Hamilton enjoys a unique complement often not available at a boutique broker-dealer that perfectly serves our customers – expert technologists paired with expert traders.
While technology dominates the cash equity business, Drexel Hamilton has never forgotten that this is still a “people business.” The most important connection we can make is the one we establish with our customers as we seek to understand their businesses, trading, and service requirements. We strive to serve as an extension of our customer’s interest, whether actively representing them in the market place or simply providing service into our customer in-between transactions.
