Established in 1978, UOBBF provides trading access for a comprehensive suite of products including leveraged foreign exchange, over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives, futures and options, commodities and securities on all major exchanges in the world.
TradAir positioned itself as an ideal solution for many of the brokerage firms in the region as the company already deploys servers locally in Singapore. 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.”
