London-based Tradefeedr announced on Tuesday that it has launched an FX data and analytics platform with a wide network of both buy-side and sell-side firms.
The press release shared with Finance Magnates detailed that the fintech has onboarded more than 15 sell-side and more than 20 buy-side market participants. Earlier, the Tradefeedr revealed that some of the participants on its network are Goldman Sachs, UBS, XTX Markets and Insight Asset Management, stressing that all of them are global leading institutions.
Additionally, the company is in talks with 20 other market participants who are willing to join the FX network.
Commenting on the prospect, Tradefeedr Chairman, Seth Johnson said: “We are delighted by the overwhelmingly positive response from major FX participants who have now joined the Tradefeedr community.

Growing Demand for Data
Founded in 2018, the platform enables clients to improve trade execution by analyzing their FX trading data from participating liquidity providers and ECNs via a standardized API. It was founded by Balraj Bassi and Alexei Jiltsov and received a $3 million investment at the end of 2020 from the privately-owned holding company, IPGL.
“Since our inception, Tradefeedr’s vision has been to deliver superior data transfer across the global FX trading community,” Bassi said. “We are excited to now roll out the platform amongst our leading liquidity providers and consumers who will be able to submit and receive their trading data amongst each other and with ECNs & trading venues over a single API.”
Jiltsov added: “FX trading data and analytics are currently siloed between venues and the sell and buy-side. Users rely upon incomplete, inaccurate data, and before Tradefeedr, there has not been any method to work together with trading flows based on a common set of data. The significant adoption we have witnessed is a testament to the support for our vision and business model focused on transforming the FX marketplace for the benefit of all participants.”
