FXSpotStream LLC announced this Thursday that Societe Generale has joined the company’s price aggregation service as a liquidity providing bank, bringing the total number of banks available for clients through the service to 15.
A wholly-owned subsidiary of LiquidityMatch LLC, FXSpotStream provides a multi-bank foreign exchange (forex) aggregation service for spot FX trading. The platform operates as a bank-owned consortium that provides the infrastructure to facilitate the route of trades from clients to liquidity providers.
Following the partnership with Societe General, clients now have access to another liquidity provider, with the French bank joining the likes of BofA, BNP Paribas, Citi, Commerzbank AG, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, J.P. Morgan, Morgan Stanley, MUFG, Standard Chartered, State Street and UBS.
Societe Generale is the second new liquidity provider added to FXSpotStream’s price streaming Service this year. As Finance Magnates reported, Barclays’ liquidity went live on the platform in February this year.
Commenting on the partnership, Alan F. Schwarz, FXSpotStream CEO, said in the statement: “After announcing the addition of Barclays last quarter, we continue the momentum and are pleased to welcome Societe Generale as the 15th liquidity provider on our Service.
