DESIGNATED MARKET MAKING
Knight serves as a Designated Market Maker (DMM) for approximately 675 securities on the New York Stock Exchange and NYSE Amex. Knight is one of the only firms with a DMM operation on both exchanges, which makes for a smooth transition when a company transitions from the NYSE Amex to the NYSE. We are able to draw on decades of experience to provide service and market color with our position as a leading DMM firm on the two exchanges.
Knight has taken advantage of the ongoing consolidation on the floor of the exchange, expanding our operations to build the presence we have today. Our strategic growth plan has given us the size and structure necessary to provide our issuer clients with tailored services that meet their needs.
Trading expertise, leading technology, capital commitment and issuer client communications serve as the cornerstones of our DMM business. Knight strives for the highest level of excellence by consistently providing superior liquidity opportunities markets for all of our clients, regardless of their size.
We have built our reputation by serving the floor community with fairness and trading integrity. Recognizing that each of our issuer clients represents a valuable asset with unique requirements and communications profile, Knight provides the service that contributes to our listed companiesí long-term success.
As Knight responds to the constantly changing dynamics and structure of future markets, we stand prepared to continue our tradition of efficient trading and communications excellence with a promise to keep issuer client satisfaction as our number one objective.
