Leading technology and bridge provider oneZero Financial Systems has announced the acquisition of Capital Market Access Partners (CMAP). The deal mergers partners, as the two firms have had an active business relationship. In addition to the deal, oneZero announced the launch of oneZero Hosted Services, a new division focusing on providing customers with an array of new services ranging from the hosting of end-to-end retail FX broker solutions to remote cloud-based resource monitoring.
In a letter to clients, Stephen Leahy, President of CMAP explained that being acquired by oneZero will provide clients availability of more solutions and greater support. Leahy stated “We have important and exciting news for you and your firm. After three years of working in a close partnership, Capital Markets Access Partners has been acquired by oneZero Financial. For you, this means even better responsiveness and support, plus more solutions and services at your disposal. As oneZero rolls out the next generation of its risk management tools for MT4 and other platforms, CMAP Private Label clients will continue to have access to the same products and features as the world’s largest brokers, with the additional benefit of a combined, streamlined entity.”
With CMAP’s expertise in sales and marketing, the acquisition provides oneZero with an opportunity to target additional brokers seeking customized trading solutions. Andrew Ralich, CEO of oneZero Financial, explained “We have seen a growing trend over the last few years toward SaaS solutions for brokerages. Many of these solutions lack back-end flexibility to allow the broker to choose from a wide range of risk management and liquidity providers. CMAP, as a leader in this space, presented a clear opportunity for us to get a jump start on our new oneZero Hosted Services offerings.”
