Credit Suisse has become the tenth liquidity provider (LP) for the FXSpotStream aggregator service of LiquidityMatch LLC. The move comes at a time when banks have tightened capital requirements for their broker counterparties in the aftermath of the Swiss National Bank induced black swan.
The addition of Credit Suisse compliments the aggregator service provided by FXSpotStream, which already delivers liquidity from a variety of major banks. The remaining nine are BofA Merrill Lynch, BNP Paribas, Citi, Commerzbank AG, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, J.P. Morgan, Morgan Stanley and UBS.
