BTIG, a global financial services firm specializing in institutional trading and related brokerage services, announced today that it has expanded its foreign exchange offering with the launch of TradeSave FX, the firm’s new electronic FX trading platform.
Complementing BTIG’s high-touch FX capabilities, TradeSave FX offers institutional investors direct access to competitive multi-dealer spot FX prices as well as order matching and liquidity aggregation around the clock.
As an institutional electronic platform for foreign exchange, TradeSave FX is an offering for more sophisticated low-touch execution clients. The platform provides anonymous execution of spot currency pairs and contingency orders, including stops and limits, and supports client-to-client trading.
