Quick Corp, a Japanese financial information vendor, has launched Quick FX, a new multi-bank foreign exchange (FX) trading platform supported by technology from FXall, an electronic FX platform.
Quick FX will be available to Quick clients using their existing Astra Manager or Quick ActiveManager solutions. This will provide Quick users with electronic FX trading through a single user interface for the first time, leveraging FXall’s Request for Quote functionality. Quick clients will benefit from access to expanded liquidity from more than 70 providers, including several Japanese institutions, through FXall’s platform.
Phil Weisberg, chief executive officer (CEO) at FXall, said: “The appetite for FX services in Japan continues to grow and participants are becoming increasingly sophisticated in their FX trading activity. FXall’s comprehensive and flexible trading offering makes it a natural partner for a market leader such as Quick and we look forward to further developing our relationship in a key market for FXall.”
