In 2018 we launched IntelligentCross, the first US equities ATS that uses AI to systematically reduce the largest costs of trading: market impact and adverse selection.

"For the third quarter of 2020, Bernstein has traded $2.2 billion through IntelligentCross Midpoint, saving roughly $400,000 in post-match market movement at 20 milliseconds after the match, computed as the mid-to-mid markout for all their trades."
