Daniel Coleman, global head of equities and client services for Getco - which has a history stretching back to 1999 - noted the "hi-tech, high-touch model" used at the NYSE fits in perfectly with his company's market.

"We are pleased to expand the services we offer to a wider range of investors and issuers," Mr Coleman remarked.

As well as this, the specialist observed the position of his firm offers organisations "increased liquidity, better pricing and unique market insights".

Getco will be the designated market manager for around 650 companies once the transaction has been completed.

Earlier this year, the firm acquired 100 per cent ownership of proprietary trading firm Automat.
