BATS Global Markets

BATS Global Markets, Inc. is a leading global operator of securities markets, committed to Making Markets Better for traders, investors and issuers. BATS serves diverse market participants, including broker-dealers, institutional and retail investors who rely on the company’s regulated exchanges to conduct their trading activities efficiently and effectively in today’s competitive capital markets. 

In 2014, BATS merged with another major U.S. securities exchange operator, Direct Edge Holdings LLC, under the BATS Global Markets entity. BATS now operates four U.S. equities exchanges, which regularly rank BATS as the top market for Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and retail-driven liquidity, and a U.S. equity options exchange. BATS also has emerged as an important listing venue for U.S. ETFs and other structured products. 

The company’s global footprint extends to Europe where BATS operates BATS Chi-X Europe, the largest pan-European equities exchange. BATS Chi-X Europe offers exchange trading services across 15 major European markets, the region’s leading trade reporting service, known as BXTR, and the first pan-European listing venue for exchange-traded products. 

BATS developed its own world-class proprietary technology and operates each of its businesses with an emphasis on market quality, transparency, fairness and industry-leading customer service. The company is headquartered in Kansas City with offices in the New York area and London. Further information on BATS can be found at and on Twitter at @BATSGlobal.
