London-based prime of prime (PoP) brokerage Stater Global Markets has just expanded its optionality for a growing institutional client base. This includes the extension of ECN trading venues available for clients, adding both Cboe FX and FastMatch, Finance Magnates has learned.
The new availability of Cboe FX and FastMatch on offer constitutes some of the biggest name ECNs in the FX market. Previously, Stater Global Markets’ clients were limited to choosing from Currenex, Integral, Flextrade, and PrimeXM. The addition of Cboe FX and Fastmatch now grants Stater Global Market’s clients access to the largest pool of liquidity to date.

This stance was reiterated by Ramy Soliman, CEO, Stater Global Markets, who commented: “we offer our own direct liquidity to clients but are aware that some of our institutional investors also want access to ECNs and alternative venues. By adding Cboe FX and FastMatch to our choice of trading venues, we are broadening the options available to clients, reflecting our agnostic value proposition of quality, flexibility and choice.”
Today’s extension of ECN optionality further reflects Stater Global Markets’ commitment to its institutional client base. The extension of Cboe FX and FastMatch as available ECN trading venues is the second marquee development for Stater Global Markets in 2018. Back in January 2018, the group also expanded its front-end trading platforms to include MetaTrader 5 (MT5) in light of growing client demand.
Since then, Stater Global Markets has delivered its entire product suite to clients via MT5, offering access to exchange-traded futures, precious metals, FX, and CFDs. Earlier this year, the group also unveiled plans to roll out a cryptocurrency offering available through MT5, though has not yet set an official date on its availability.
