Mizuho Securities Co., Ltd. (hereafter, “Mizuho Securities”) and Tudor Investment Corporation (an investment management firm incorporated in the US, (hereafter, “Tudor”) ) have concluded a systems trading investment management agreement.
Mizuho Securities, as a member of the Tokyo Stock Exchange (hereafter, “TSE”), has built a high-speed, low-latency execution platform for high-frequency trading with the launch of TSE’s Arrowhead in January of this year.

Mr. Koichiro Sugii, Head of Mizuho Securities’ Equity Group, notes: “We believe this trading arrangement with Tudor further strengthens our capabilities in the area of systems driven execution, and helps to confirm the advanced nature of our new high-frequency execution system”.
Mr. Steve Evans, Managing Director of Systems Trading for Tudor, states: “We are pleased with the substantial synergies achieved through this trading arrangement, and believe that Mizuho Securities has built a world class trade execution platform.”
