Publication date: 25 January 2011
QuantumFX, a next-generation foreign exchange trading platform which powers the evolution of institutional Forex, has been launched today by the Alpari group of companies, a global provider of online trading services. QuantumFX will provide corporations, hedge funds, banks and high frequency trading institutions with access to a diverse and deep liquidity pool.
QuantumFX features anonymous trading via a central clearing counter-party model with multiple execution mechanisms: Executable Streaming Prices (ESP™); Request for Quote (RFQ)/Request for Stream (RFS) for spot, forwards and swaps. It also supports multiple order types and execution algorithms that help minimise market impact.
Daniel Skowronski, Chief Executive Officer of Alpari (US), says: “QuantumFX is an optimal liquidity solution, providing access to a completely anonymous trading environment. We have developed this online platform as a result of our in-depth market research into institutional investor behaviour and requirements. Now banks, corporations and other investors can enjoy unlimited access to our state-of-the-art Forex trading platform QuantumFX.”
QuantumFX leverages the sophisticated infrastructure of Currenex® to provide diverse access to high performance trading technology. It comes with integrated third-party access and reporting capabilities.
Mark Davison recently joined Alpari (UK) as Global Head of Institutional Sales. He says, “Forex trading is a fast-moving business which is driven by knowledge and technology. The team here at Alpari excels in both. We understand that institutional investors are under pressure to perform, whatever the market environment. Having the right tools and services at hand is essential and that is why we developed QuantumFX.”
Jermaine Harmon, Head of Alpari (US) Institutional Sales for the Americas, adds: “As with all Alpari products and services, QuantumFX is a platform clients can trust. It incorporates the very latest trading technology, making it an advanced execution tool on which institutions can rely and which enables clients to execute against a unique liquidity pool. Our customers benefit from the QuantumFX team’s extensive FX experience and the platform’s truly global reach.”
