Alfa Capital Holdings (Cyprus) Limited announced this Tuesday that it is the latest to partner with Your Bourse in a deal that will see the EU-regulated investment firm provide access to its liquidity.
Alfa Capital provides spot foreign exchange (forex) to retail brokers, HFTs, asset managers and other institutional investors, among other instruments. Under the agreement, Your Bourse will enable access to the investment firm’s liquidity flow for retail brokers.
In particular, Alfa Capital provides liquidity aggregation for G10, emerging market currencies and precious metals. Therefore, brokers with Russian ruble (RUB) trading flows will have access to institutional spreads and fast execution. This will be supplied via the Your Bourse platform, so retail brokers can access the liquidity directly via their MT4/MT5 connectors or direct FIX connectors.
Alfa Capital focuses on institutional offering
Commenting on the partnership, Alfa Capital’s CEO, Dinos Hadjisavvas said in the statement: “We are delighted to commence our partnership in offering our FX liquidity through Your Bourse platform. We are looking forward to a successful cooperation between our respective companies and clients coming onboard through the platform.”

Last year Alfa Capital announced that it would be focusing more on its institutional operations, after no longer offering its services to individual clients and other users which are categorized as “retail” under MiFID, from the end of June 2019.
Alfa Capital made the strategic decision to focus on providing “premium trading services” on forex and related products to institutional market participants through its existing trading platforms.
Your Bourse expands Liquidity Hub
As Finance Magnates reported, Your Bourse has been expanding its Liquidity Hub, with numerous market partnerships. This has seen the likes of Equiti Capital UK, CFH Clearing, FXCM Pro and more all joining forces with Your Bourse.
“We are happy to welcome Alfa Capital to the network of Your Bourse liquidity providers. The partnership was triggered by high demand for Russian Ruble liquidity in the recent months. Integration with Alfa Capital allows our clients to add a reliable liquidity source for RUB pairs to their FX offering,” added Your Bourse CEO, Andrey Vedikhin.
