FX brokerage Equiti Capital has deployed Lucera’s LumeFX aggregator as it seeks to open new markets without having to operate infrastructure.
“As a desk the high fill rates and aggressive pricing we provide to our electronic clients is paramount, the low latency of the co-located infrastructure provided by Lucera, coupled with the excellent liquidity management tools and analytics, helps us to this end,” says Benedict Sears, head of the FX desk at Equiti Capital. “Lucera’s LumeFX platform allows Equiti to provide customisable liquidity streams to every client, aiding the matching of client interests to reduce market impact, while monitoring risks, including pre-trade credit checks, to ensure business continuity even in volatility spikes without compromising our dynamic risk management.”
Frank van Zegveld, managing director of business development and sales at Lucera, adds, “Lucera’s LumeFX platform gives Equiti a new level of control of their FX operation, enabling Equiti Capital to dynamically manage every facet of how their clients interact and run their FX business.”
