Owned by the Singapore Exchange (SGX), BidFX offers an array of services within the FX trading industry. The company has partnered with several trading providers, including Global Prime, State Street and Nomura, and enhanced its trading platform with the latest data and analytics suite.
In addition, the company launched its flagship desktop forex trading application on OpenFin, an operating system for the financial industry, last September.
“It’s exciting to see the continued growth of our global relationship with Commerzbank via the integration of their algo suite, which is largely being driven by our asset management clientele,” said Rory Sheen, Head of DACH Sales at BidFX.
“As buy-side market participants continue to increase their usage of FX algos to source the best liquidity and execute efficiently for their end investors, Commerzbank’s algo strategies are a welcome addition to the BidFX algo hub.”
