Invast Global has announced that the prime brokerage is adding its liquidity to the London oneZero Hub located on the premises of Equinix (LD4). Retail brokers in Europe will gain better access to the liquidity that Invast Global is providing to its clients.
The move follows up on the partnership that was announced between the companies in 2017 when Invast Global used oneZero’s infrastructure in New York to deploy a hub in NY4. The prime brokerage will be offering multi-asset liquidity to retail brokers, hedge funds, proprietary trading firms and banks. The new LD4 Hub includes FX, metals, index CFDs and commodity CFDs.
Commenting on the news, the Chief Operating Officer of Invast Global, Jon Leung, said: “We have built a strong relationship with oneZero since implementing our NY4 hub in 2017. Adding the LD4 hub to our coverage will allow our UK and European clients to benefit from our exceptional cross-connected liquidity via their own oneZero bridges.”

The co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of oneZero Financial, Andrew Ralich, stated: “Over the past 12-18 months, we have seen a significant increase in demand for locally sourced liquidity via oneZero Liquidity Hub instances hosted in our Equinix LD4 DataCenter location.”
“We are very excited to add Invast to the list of EcoSystem providers available out of LD4. Invast has historically provided a very strong liquidity offering to our mutual clients, backed by a strong regulatory footing, client-focused support model, and solid balance sheet,” Mr. Ralich elaborated.

oneZero moved its European headquarters to Cyprus in early 2017, however, oneZero’s presence in the London market was recently renewed. The company committed to the acquisition of new talent, with the addition of Mukrram Ali. The tech provider has been growing its presence on the institutional side of the market with its software solutions and direct data center presence in LD4.
Invast Global has been focused on the Asia-Pacific region for years, and its expansion globally is only a logical continuation of its effort to diversify its business. The company is providing pre- and post-trade access to several banks, non-bank liquidity providers, and ECNs. The company also provides its clients access to a suite of execution algorithms that cover a variety of order types.
