LeapRate Exclusive… Multi-asset prime brokerage Invast Global, in cooperation with MetaQuotes Software Corp, has developed a simple “one-click” MT5 liquidity solution allowing it to provide Hedge Funds, Asset Managers and global brokerage firms with single-stock pricing and execution across a breathtaking array of global stock exchanges including leveraged long / short market access.
Invast Global is the first prime broker to launch full multi-asset trading capability within MetaTrader 5 and it is expected to be a popular launch at the upcoming iFX Expo in Cyprus.
With connectivity to over 30 stock exchanges, the service will allow retail brokers across the world to begin offering up to 30,000 single stocks alongside the traditional FX, Metals and Index instruments on MT5. Invast Global provide full operational support, including server configuration and management of corporate actions.
The prime broker has struck unique pricing distribution agreements with the various global exchanges, which simplifies the process for brokers significantly, meaning they only need to have one price distribution agreement with Invast Global rather than a separate agreement with each exchange.
We believe, by solving the operational issues around corporate actions and stock borrow, we have suddenly made the prospect of multi-asset a high-value, achievable proposition for retail brokers.” commented Invast Global CEO Gavin White. “When you then consider that we have also solved the other major headache of exchange price redistribution – and add in the fact that this can all be delivered to retail brokers via API along with Invast Global’s award-winning FX, Index and Metals liquidity, we think we have potentially enabled a tipping point for the industry to begin the migration to multi-asset capability. There is no reason for brokers to confine themselves to the traditional retail offering any longer.
Invast Global has offices in Sydney, Tokyo and Hong Kong and operates under an Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL) issued by ASIC.
The JASDAQ-listed Japanese parent company – Invast Securities Co. has a 60-year history as a FX and Securities brokerage and enjoys stable, long-standing relationships with numerous tier-1 bank prime brokers.
