Equities

Meridian is an agency only broker dealer. We operate with zero conflict of interest and act 100% on our client's behalf. Meridian operates a full service trading desk centrally located on the NYSE floor. This desk has quickly grown to become one of the largest entities on the Exchange with tens of millions of shares being traded each day. In addition to accessing composite volume through all ECN's, algo's and dark pools, we employ numerous brokers throughout the NYSE floor, giving us a larger presence than many of the major banks. This complete and comprehensive coverage allows us to personalize each order while taking advantage of being at the point of sale.

Meridian has a broad, diverse and international clientele representing all strategies and market caps. We utilize a complete suite of algorithmic and dark pool solutions encompassing a wide variety of client order instructions. Meridian's soft dollar capabilities allow clients to achieve their desired research results while maximizing performance. Additionally, our veteran sales traders have the depth of experience and know how to locate hard to find liquidity if so directed.

At the core of Meridian's execution capabilities lies our expertise in spread trading-be it Merger Arbitrage, Pairs, Stubs, Rights and Warrants. Our ability and desire to tackle the more difficult, illiquid outright or spread trades coupled with depth of product range, cements our usefulness and trust with our clients. Meridian's secret to success is our unique ability to toggle back and forth between human and electronic execution. Having direct access to the point of sale via our NYSE floor operation gives us a setup and view of the markets that many of our peers cannot replicate. Quite simply, Meridian sales traders anticipate in a proactive way, capturing opportunities as they arise.
