LiquidityFX – Following The Market


smartTrade’s press release on LiquidityFX highlights one of the key drivers in the FX space over the last time period – “regional financial institutions”.  I suspect smartTrade is not talking Tier-1 banks here🙂 , but the smaller tier 2 and 3 banks, who’s customer based is obviously different to the major players, and ripe for electronic trading improvements.  From a technology perspective, it would be interesting to know what percentage of the overall regional financial institution market opts for hosted/managed solution (aka cloud) vs software package (self install) vs appliance.   I recall Kaazing used to offer an appliance, but due to demand I believe it was discontinued.  However, in the case of smartTrade, given the larger product offering they provide, and knowing the tier 2/3 market a little😉 , an appliance may have a better take up.

  1. Thanks for the mention. We completely agree with you. That’s why LiquidtyFX is offered as a hosted system, as an appliance, or as a software package that can be installed on the customer’s site
