Lime Brokerage Signs with Trillium Surveyor for Trade Surveillance

New York, NY – June 13, 2018 – Trillium announced today that Lime Brokerage will now use Trillium’s Surveyor platform for trade surveillance.

Lime Brokerage has recently merged with Lightspeed Trading and efutures to share efficiencies and extend product and service offerings. As a result, Lime, which offers low-latency brokerage services to algorithmic trading firms, accounting for roughly 1% of the U.S. market in equities and options, has recognized the success Lightspeed has had with its trade surveillance platform, Surveyor. The now larger brokerage will adapt the Surveyor platform to its Lime offerings in addition to the existing Lightspeed implementation.

“We have been using Surveyor for several years in our Lightspeed division and feel confident using this product,” said Lime CEO Farid Naib. “Surveyor’s accurate alerts and intuitive interface has saved our compliance team a vast number of working hours. It was a no-brainer to expand our relationship with Surveyor after the completed merger.”

“We are grateful to Farid and his team at Lime for their continued support,” said Trillium CEO Barry Schwarz. “Lime offers industry-leading technology and market access for the automated and electronic trading community, and we are proud to be a part of their infrastructure.”

Surveyor is the only trade surveillance software that qualifies alerts using full depth-of-book market data. Competing software just uses top-of-book data, missing real market manipulation and producing useless false positives.
