SS&C Technologies Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSNC), a provider of comprehensive financial services software, has agreed to terms with Old National Bank, to implement and push foreign exchange (FX) trading capabilities for the bank’s clientele, according to a SS&C Technologies statement.
SS&C Technologies has worked with a variety of banking and institutional venues, offering its solutions suite for several venues dealing with multiple asset classes. The new initiative with Indiana-based Old National Bank will help integrate SS&C Technologies’ FX Trading Portal, which helps bring a unified trading solution to banking clients, as opposed to going through a sovereign broker.
As such, Old National Bank will utilize SS&C’s web-based FX trading solution for its commercial, corporate, and institutional customers with direct market access. In a unique offering amongst US banks, clients will also gain access to not just G10 currencies but also a robust basket of emerging markets (EM) currencies, with additional options to spot, forwards, and swaps.
