Goldman Sachs Form ATS Amendment Filing, which Governs Operations around the Firm’s SIGMA X US Platform
On June 2, 2014, Goldman Sachs publically disclosed its most recent Form ATS Amendment filing, which governs operations around the firm’s SIGMA X US platform. SIGMA X US is owned and operated by Goldman Sachs Execution & Clearing, L.P. (“GSEC”).
Goldman Sachs has had a longstanding position with respect to transparency of exchanges and ATSs and first advocated for an SEC rule requiring that Form ATSs be made public in a comment letter filed in June 2010 relating to the SEC’s Concept Release on Equity Market Structure. The letter is available on the SEC website: http://www.sec.gov/comments/s7-02-10/s70210-243.pdf
Since that time, the firm has continued to advocate for transparency of market venues, most recently in the Wall Street Journal Op-Ed article published in April: http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702303563304579447692855042948
