A new way of thinking about markets

Plato Partnership is a not-for-profit company comprising asset managers and broker dealers who are collaborating to bring creative solutions and efficiencies to today’s complex equity market place.

Plato Partnership will use the revenue it generates to commission academic research through MI3. This research will identify ever better ways of executing trades, as well as lowering the cost and improving the quality of the broad range of processes and data required to support the execution lifecycle.

Taking a truly collaborative approach to enhance the reputation of equities markets and improve the trading experience for the benefit of all market participants.

The Board is supported by three key groups; the Turquoise Plato Expert Group (TPEG), The Market Innovator (MI3), and the Plato Strategic Initiatives Group (PSIG), and all Board members are dedicated to supporting one of these groups.

Underpinning these groups there are three partner focus groups; the Plato Lab, Turquoise Plato Senior Advisory Group and the Incubation Lab, and this is where we’d like to ask you, Plato’s future partners, to get involved. New partners will be invited to join the Plato Lab, the Incubation Lab or the Turquoise Plato Senior Advisory Group to get involved and feed into the Plato Partnership network.
