Provide 24/7 Pricing to Clients

Source Liquidity

Spread Markups

Automatically enhance the spread by marking up the bid or ask to customize the prices delivered to your customers. Create multiple client groups to deliver VIP clients the best prices while extracting higher profit margins from less price-sensitve clients. 

Order Flexibility

Provide clients with a simplified experience to transact only on a market-based RFQ or market order basis, or add limit order support so clients can place resting orders at specific price levels with your spread markup calculations automatically included.

Effectively Manage Trading Activities

Book Management

Automatically offset risk in a back-to-back trade with your preferred liquidity provider or manage client deal flow against inventory already in your book. You have complete flexibility for how you manage your OTC book.

High-Touch Trades

Take orders via IM & phone and use the order ticket to quote a firm price to your client that dynamically calculates the spread markup and goes through the same automated workflow as-if the client was placing the trade on the electronic platform.

Amplify Trading

Connect to the leading spot exchanges in the world in order to conduct exchange operations or trade crypto options, futures, & perpetual swaps at the top derivatives exchanges for enhanced risk management or to create OTC options & structured products. 

Efficiently Support Clients & Run Operations

Apply Limits

Set collateral & trading limits with predefined configurations. Options to pull account values from your official books & records system, schedule a daily file upload, or manage manually. Provide trusted clients with credit limits so they can trade freely and without interuption.

Track Revenue

See spread markup revenue accumulate in real-time as client trading activity occurs and drill down into individual trades to track the trade price delivered to the client, the price of the offsetting trade with the liquidity provider, and all event details during the trade lifecycle.
