FCA-regulated prime brokerage and execution venue IS Prime has partnered with TradAir, the Israel-based provider of cloud trading technology solutions, to extend its multi-asset liquidity distribution.
The combined effort will leverage TradAir’s infrastructure and IS Prime’s price aggregation and matching capabilities to expand the companies’ institutional client base while continuing to service the retail brokerage, mid-sized institutions, and active professional traders.
More specifically, this collaboration enables banks and brokers to view and trade directly against IS Prime liquidity while allowing TradAir’s clients to benefit from a reduced latency and improved pricing when they opt to take IS Prime’s liquidity.
IS Prime, part of the ISAM Capital Markets Group, is a prime of prime business owned by the London-based hedge fund International Standard Asset Management. The group offers liquidity aggregation, prime of prime, agency execution, and non-fx liquidity. It has recently expanded its cooperation with a number of technology partners, including most recently with institutional trading platform Integral OCXTM.
