“Our traders needed a customizable FX trading solution that would allow them to execute orders against any bank, ECN or interdealer platform and leverage next generation automated trading strategies,” says Fredrik Wingren, Head of Trading at IPM. “Portware FX provided the highest levels of customization, functionality and system flexibility, enabling our traders to increase trading efficiencies, streamline workflows and maximize alpha capture.”

Portware FX is a comprehensive FX trading solution that aggregates liquidity from all global providers and offers customizable algorithmic trading strategies to bring new efficiencies to FX trading. The platform also includes Portware's FX Liquidity Monitor (FXLM), an FX transaction cost analysis (TCA) and post-trade analytics package that gives traders increased visibility into their trading performance. Clients can also take advantage of Portware FX’s new cloud-based model, which offers fast deployment, ease of access to all liquidity providers and significantly reduced operational overhead. Leading asset managers, hedge funds and broker dealers worldwide have deployed Portware FX to meet their most complex trading requirements, leading to dramatic growth in Portware’s FX business over the past 18 months, including a 24 percent quarter-over-quarter increase in FX trade volumes in Q3 alone.
