Access the world’s most liquid financial market
Through our financial strength, expertise and established infrastructure, we provide superior FX liquidity and a full range of FX services. We offer this through direct relationships with many top-tier banks, regional specialists, select non-banks and three prime brokers.
Our in-house experts provide a personal service, customising liquidity pools and solutions to suit your needs, and our specialist teams in London and Hong Kong provide round-the-clock support. Our clients can monitor their positions with our real-time FX trade and risk-reporting portal. Our product offering includes FX spot, forwards, swaps, OTC options, NDOs, NDFs and deliverable FX, across multiple execution venues. We also offer third-party credit intermediation, direct ECN access and FX clearing.
We provide customised eFX solutions to a wide variety of global institutions, including banks, hedge funds, proprietary trading firms and retail brokers. We offer superior liquidity through our relationships with top-tier banks, regional specialists and select non-banks who offer a true risk price. Our scale and position in the markets means we can offer individually tailored competitive pricing, minimising your trading costs.
OTC FX options have traditionally been dominated by primary-dealer banks and a small number of inter-dealer brokers. Electronic access to truly competitive pricing and independent pre-trade analytics has been limited, until now.
We provide an extensive deliverable product offering, with same-day payments, together with forward FX hedges, flexi-forwards, time options, covering a comprehensive spectrum of currency pairs. You can control how and when you execute transactions through market, limit or stop loss orders, by voice or through one of our electronic solutions, all with extremely competitive pricing. Our 24-hour service and your own account manager mean you can manage your FX risk at any time of day.

Commentary and analysis covering OTC currency option pricing, volatility and positioning.
Metal prices have rallied so far in 2021, in line with improving economic data and risk appetite, largely due to improving vaccination rates across the globe. Europe was slow to roll out vaccines, and as a result, has seen lower economic growth and weaker metals demand. However, the disconnect between supply and demand is set to continue in the near term as supply struggles to keep up. The global chip shortage is having an impact on the auto market, and there is no quick fix to this problem. Physical traders in China are reluctant to pay the high prices, but the fund community remain heavily involved. We expect metal prices to remain supported in Q2, but we are seeing early signs that supply is responding, but this will be more of a factor in H2 2021.
