The co-location greatly ‎improves the competitiveness of the service and the quality of FX liquidity that ‎clients can offer to their customers. Singapore is one of the largest FX nexuses in ‎the world, behind London and New York, with daily volumes approaching $380 ‎billion on a daily basis. TradAir has also offices in London, New York and Tel Aviv.‎

Commenting in the press release, Paul Blank, VP Marketing at TradAir, said: ‎‎“UOBBF are a highly respected Singapore brokerage, and securing them as a client, ‎is a testament to the competitive strength of our solutions. Earlier this year, we ‎deployed local servers in Singapore, opened of local office and expanded our ‎support staff, all of which demonstrate our strong commitment to service the needs ‎of the brokerage community in Singapore and the APAC region.”‎
