Avant-Garde Trading Securities and Canadian crypto-asset broker Voyager Digital have engaged in a new partnership to offer zero-commission trading of crypto assets for the US-based broker dealer’s clients.
This collaboration allows Avant-Garde to offer its customers the ability to trade cryptocurrencies through integration with Voyager’s execution services and the aggregation of crypto exchange data feeds.
Avant-Garde, which plans to go live in nearly three months, provides its community with a proprietary technology to trade on stocks, options, exchange-traded funds, futures, and forex markets.
Voyager’s app trawls through multiple cryptocurrency exchanges and trading venues to find the best buy and sell price or that is closest to the price that had been offered to the user. Avant-Garde and Voyager are actively integrating the systems with a target launch planned for Q1 2020.

“Their state-of-the-art platform and technology will provide our clients with a tremendous opportunity to invest in this growing asset class,” said David Gompert, CEO of Avant-Garde Trading Securities.
Voyager has a long list of deep-pocketed investors
Voyager already offers commission-free trading for at least 30 major cryptocurrencies, as it intends to take on Robinhood, the market leader in no-fee crypto trading. The startup also allows instant account opening and funding in the US dollar with a $10 minimum.
Avant-Garde is the latest partner to line up into Voyager’s network, which has recently added Market Rebellion, Tiger Trading, Sterling Trading, CoinDust, Blockforce, and Arwen.
The licensed crypto asset brokerage has a long list of deep-pocketed investors, including Uber co-founder Oscar Salazar. Voyager is headed by Stephen Ehrlich, the former CEO and founder of retail brokerage Lightspeed Financial who also previously ran the professional trading arm of online stock broker E*Trade.
“Voyager Digital is committed to transforming access to the crypto market, and, in just the last month alone, we have announced three important partnerships. Our partnership with Avant-Garde Trading Securities is part of this transformation and will connect investors to the best crypto-asset platform out there today,” said Steve Ehrlich, co-founder and CEO at Voyager Digital.
