PDF Version PDF format

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 8, 2008--Investment Technology Group, Inc. (NYSE: ITG), a leading provider of technology-based trading services and transaction research, today announced that March 2008 US trading volume was 4.6 billion shares and average daily volume (ADV) was 228 million shares. This compares to 4.0 billion shares and ADV of 182 million shares in March 2007 and 4.0 billion shares and ADV of 202 million shares in February 2008.

There were 20 trading days in March 2008 compared to 20 trading days in February 2008 and 22 trading days in March 2007.

"ITG's US volumes remained robust in March despite the ongoing market turmoil. In Europe and Asia, the market downturn affected market turnover, and to a lesser extent revenues, due to the ad valorem pricing model in these markets," said Howard Naphtali, Chief Financial Officer at ITG. "ITG continues to execute on its strategies for domestic and international growth, including the globalization of its product suite."

Monthly volume statistics reflect commission-generating US volume. These statistics are preliminary and may be revised in subsequent updates and public filings. Volume statistics are posted on ITG's website,, and are available via a downloadable spreadsheet file.
