Atlantic Equities is a US equity brokerage firm based in London servicing European institutional investors.

Our Approach


Formed in 2003 by an established team from Cazenove, one of the most respected investment banks in the UK, Atlantic Equities conducts and publishes fundamental, bottom up research on mid and large cap US companies.

Atlantic provide order execution through a wide range of DMA products and algorithmic trading suites.

Highly-experienced analysts and salespeople who are in the same time zone as our European client base, enabling superior access and collaborative relationships.

A focus on actionable investment ideas that will enhance our clients' investment returns.

Close relationships with senior US management as exemplified by our outstanding programme of non-deal roadshows.

A London-based sales trading team covering US market hours, executing customer orders across a wide range of trading venues.

Corporate & Roadshows

Each year, Atlantic Equities organises European roadshows and investor meetings for over 100 US companies, introducing senior management to the key institutions that we know and speak with on a daily basis.

Our overwhelming priority is to put management teams in front of the right investors, either current or potential. We achieve this using our local knowledge of what European investors own and where their interests lie. Prior to investor meetings, we provide management with in-depth briefing notes and, afterwards, we compile timely, detailed and frank feedback. If you are an IRO or member of management at a US corporation then we would be delighted to have a “no obligations” discussion regarding the most effective means of targeting European investors. Please contact Lisa Traeger, our Corporate Relationship Officer, on +44 (0) 20 7382 2937 or email for more information.
