(SI).

The concept of Systematic internalisers was introduced by MiFID regulations in 2007.

SIs are institutions large enough to match client orders internally, or against their own books.

SIs differ from broker crossing networks, which may route client orders between a number of different institutions.


An SI is defined in MiFID as:

  1. An investment firm which
  2. On an organised, frequent and systematic basis,
  3. Deals on own account by executing client orders outside a regulated market (RM) or an MTF (Multilateral trading facility).


A firm does not need specific authorisation from its competent authority to carry out systematic internalisation.

However, similarly to MTFs and RMs, they are required to conform to some transparency requirements, such as providing public price quotes.


Only a few (generally large) firms have set up SIs.
