We offer a broad range of services to our clients

The products and services we deliver can be deployed individually or, as is most commonly the case, combined to deliver the optimum solution. This is entirely dependent on a client’s precise requirements.

Tier 1 Liquidity Aggregation

LD4 and NY4 Connectivity

Fully customisable liquidity with access to Tier 1 banks, brokers and hedge funds, delivering unique, robust DMA FX trading across 80+ crosses, as well as access to non-FX products including indices and commodities.

Our quant teams are in regular contact with their peers at the major bank and non-bank liquidity providers to discuss all elements of the flow that is directed towards us. We believe that open and transparent dialogue of this nature is of paramount importance in ensuring we receive the best pricing available.

By comparing our execution metrics on latency, aftermath and inception points with our providers we can confidently offer an aggregated liquidity panel to our clients that has been uniquely designed for their business.

Agency Execution

Interbank market access

As a natural extension of our brokerage services, IS Prime has constructed a separate technology and liquidity environment geared towards an Institutional client base. Our agency platform is centrally cleared by our platform provider, a leading UK Banking Institution.

Liquidity is available via an API or GUI, with the latter offering a multitude of execution order types and extensive algorithmic capabilities. Contributors to the liquidity pool comprise of the major market making banks, non-bank LPs and selected ECNs. Clients therefore benefit from a deep, anonymous and unique liquidity solution.

Technology

Technology is at the heart of our business

In today’s challenging trading environment, a robust, efficient and bespoke technology offering is central to our clients' needs. We have made significant investments in our trading and clearing architecture and we will continue with this strategy to ensure that we are always leading, and not lagging, the market.

Our philosophy is to deploy high-end off the shelf trading engines and components together with in-house developed software thus creating an almost perfect hybrid model. This allows us to review each client’s specific requirements and tailor make the appropriate solution.

Prime of Prime

Front to back institutional solutions

In addition to our liquidity offering, we have substantial lines with our Tier 1 Bank prime brokers. These relationships allow us to offer tailor made and robust Prime of Prime services to our clients. Clients benefit from a full suite of front-to-back hosted solutions together with pre-trade risk checks and competitive margin terms.

The Prime of Prime business offers multi-venue liquidity, coupled with real-time reporting with positions netted and margin/risk alerts based on the net positions.

Non-FX Liquidity

Index swaps – indices, energy and metals

IS Prime has created a proprietary Index Swap API through which clients can access the most popular instruments based on underlying index and commodity products.

In line with our overall firm-wide philosophy we create bespoke offerings for each and every client rather than providing a ‘one size fits all’ product. This approach allows clients to differentiate themselves in ways that have not been possible before.
