Performance, meet efficiency.

Designed to help you maximize efficiency and enrich the broker experience, the Streetscape® brokerage workstation offers one-click access to account details, advisor sales tools, and educational and marketing resources. Our version of this robust platform unlocks all features that are commonly locked down by other firms, allowing you to integrate best-in-class third-party providers to allow for customization and scale.

Real-time quotes.
Market updates. When they happen.

Through an alliance with Thomson Reuters®, you have access to a robust solution for streaming quotes, news, and analytics. You have the flexibility to choose between two options, depending on your market data needs. The basic package provides you with access to slightly-delayed quotes, charts, market overview, and company profiles. The select package, on the other hand, is a great option for users who do not need streaming data, but prefer access to real-time (static) quotes and news. Streaming data is also available, should you need it.
