Commenting to Finance Magnates on the revamped offering, the co-founder and CEO of Atom8 David Andrews said: “Atom8 has always designed its offering for a professional/institutional client base and we have worked very hard to continually upgrade every aspect of our liquidity provision in accordance with our Best Execution obligations.”

“We believe the clients require institutional standards of service and we have made recent changes to our liquidity offering to provide new products, institutional level depth, and exceptional execution. Our recent staff hires underline our commitment to this space and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. For us, 2016 has been the beginning of a period of dynamic growth for the foreseeable future,“ he added.

Elaborating on the changes to the foreign exchange liquidity offering, Andrews said: “Many firms display extremely tight spreads at the top of book price, however, the amount of liquidity at that price is so low that the client has almost no chance of actually getting executed at that price.”

“Atom8’s has worked with a group of select new partners to customize aggregated liquidity pools with minimum $1 million top of the book, while maintaining transparent, competitive spreads and pricing. To minimize the spread, liquidity providers from different regions were added to these liquidity pools to maintain competitive spreads during all time zones.”
