Trading FX markets seamlessly on the desk

Published on 5 December 2022

Foreign exchange trading takes place across a fragmented marketplace, which can be challenging for traders to aggregate into a single view and execute across efficiently.

With different approaches needed for trading, according to policy, procedure and risk appetite at different firms, asset managers need flexible support. Some split trading between low-touch high-touch trades, others handle execution holistically. Either way the entire trade lifecycle, from order generation through to execution and settlement, needs to be seamless and reliable.
