Marex Spectron, a global commodities brokerage, announced its return to the foreign exchange (FX) markets on Tuesday, with the launch of its new platform for FX and precious metal spot trading.
The platform, which is available through a desktop and mobile app, offers FX execution services for over-the-counter (OTC) and exchange-traded derivatives (ETD) across spot, forwards and futures, non-deliverable forwards (NDFs), options and FX price hedging.
The platform is targeted toward institutional investors – financial institutions, commercial users, hedge funds, commodity trading advisors and proprietary trading houses. The platform leverages the aggregated liquidity of multiple banks and FX liquidity providers.
Commenting on the launch, David Govett, the Head of FX and Bullion at Marex Spectron, said: “With the increased volatility in FX markets, there is demand for such a service from our clients. We also understand that our clients need more than just a telephone dealing service, with desktop and mobile applications important parts of any offering.”
