SmartTrade Technologies has announced that SMBC Nikko Securities has signed up to take its Liquidity FX platform for its Japan business.
“We were looking to partner with a vendor with a proven track record and a strong local presence,” says Takuya Shinahara, managing director, global markets technologies, at SMBC Nikko Securities. “SmartTrade’s Tokyo-based development and operations teams fully understood our business challenges and worked with us to deliver quality results in a timely fashion.”
David Vincent, CEO and founder of SmartTrade Technologies, adds, “SmartTrade was able to draw on its expertise in local markets to tailor our solution to the specific needs of SMBC Nikko Securities. Liquidity FX’s end-to-end functionality will enable the company to expand and enhance its FX business and to offer an improved service to clients across its network of branches. Having a fully operational office in Tokyo meant that we could offer an exceptionally fast time to market as well as first-rate client service. We are fully committed to the region and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with SMBC Nikko Securities.”
