Flow Traders enters FX Market with MarketFactory


Flow Traders, a technology-enabled liquidity provider specialising in exchange traded products (ETPs), and MarketFactory, an industry-leading FX technology platform, are teaming up to enable investors to trade FX directly with Flow Traders on FX trading venues across the globe.

Flow Traders has a long history of trading FX as part of its hedging strategies, and identified the opportunity to further expand its role in the FX market. MarketFactory’s API product, Whisperer, underpins Flow Traders’ strategic ambitions to become a leading liquidity provider in FX.
“Given our in-depth knowledge combined with evolving technology, now is the time to open up as a liquidity provider to FX markets,” says Robbert Sijbrandij (pictured), Head of FX, Flow Traders. “In the new regulatory landscape, Flow Traders will continue to contribute to fair and transparent markets. This cooperation will enable counterparties to directly trade FX more effectively and efficiently than ever before, creating a more level playing field for investors.”
Flow Traders chose to partner with MarketFactory as they are the top connectivity provider in FX, with access to over 70 FX global trading venues, and their technology is best-in-class.
“We are thrilled to be helping Flow Traders grow and expand into the USD5.1 trillion daily foreign exchange market,” says Darren Jer, CEO, MarketFactory. “By managing the software connectivity for Flow Traders, we’re hoping they can focus on the critical risk management, hedging and trading activities.”
