Joseph Ng, Business Development Director, FOREX/Bullion at Phillip Futures, commented on the announcement: “FlexTrade’s multi-bank streaming capabilities add value to our business in NDF, spot currencies and precious metals. Since we are enjoying an interest in demand from clients to trade NDFs, this capability not only provides them with easy execution of trades, but also gives them more competitive prices when they trade with us.”
According to Manish Kedia, Managing Director of FlexTrade Systems in Singapore, it was MaxxTrader’s diversity that convinced Phillip Futures to choose the platform. He said: “Handling spot currencies, NDFs and precious metals was a primary facet in their decision, but it wasn’t the only one. MaxxTrader also allows them to use two separate aggregators – one in London, the other in Tokyo – to service all the locations of their global business.”
