Indeed, on January 22, Mr. Eaglstein is scheduled to moderate the first panel of the day at the iFX EXPO in Macau, which focuses on which FX product is becoming hot property in the Asia-Pacific region.
With regard to the new position, Mr. Eaglstein today demonstrated his intention to take the company’s institutional business forward as a result of his new position: “I am responsible for growing BT’s FX eCommerce department, eCommerce being our Institutional Trading division where clients trade on credit instead of margin,” he said.
“In this capacity we act in a similar way to Lucid markets by providing unique liquidity as a Non-Bank provider,” Mr. Eaglstein continued. “We are already integrated as a liquidity provider on venues including Integral, GAIN GTX, Currenex, HotspotFX, FXAll and First Derivatives, so it is simple for clients of these venues to add BTPrime FX eCommerce as an LP.”
“We also have direct API connections with certain clients that do not use one of these popular venues and have all in house technology supporting our liquidity offering. Firms can post margin at their existing prime broker and trade with us via 4 way give up agreements. We have a robust technology infrastructure in London, Tokyo, New York/New Jersey (Equinix) and have a sophisticated quant team which optimizes our pricing. We are able to provide granular liquidity solutions tailored by currency pair, trading style, trade size, venue and client to meet the liquidity needs of our trading partners,” he concluded.
