Multi-asset brokerage based in Sydney and Hong Kong, Invast Global, has just announced its partnership with Cboe Global Markets. Invast Global is a provider of Prime Brokerage Services globally, allowing brokers, asset managers and hedge funds access to execution, clearing and custody services across a range of global markets in Equities, ETFs, Futures, Foreign Exchange and Precious Metals.
Invast recently launched a fully integrated API solution for brokers incorporating both market data and exchange execution for thousands of Single Stock CFDs. This offering provides clients with live exchange pricing and leveraged, long/short execution capability via Direct Market Access (DMA), to some of the world’s most liquid CFD markets. The offering utilises Cboe market data for U.S. and European equities.
James Alexander, Invast Chief Commercial Officer notes:
The Cboe equities data packages offer outstanding value not just for us as data vendor and the point of execution, but also for our broker clients. The fact that non-professional consumers of the data can access US and pan-European exchange data with no monthly access fees means that our Broker clients are able to disseminate this product to their customers in a much more cost-efficient way than has previously been possible. Ultimately this allows for brokers to distribute a more diversified range of products to more clients – which is a great result.
The delivery of an integrated data and DMA execution solution for CFDs is aided by the provision of full operational and technology support functions to reduce the operational burden for our clients. Market data reporting is also streamlined, with Invast acting as the vendor of record to our broker clients.
We feel that providing a streamlined offering including data distribution, DMA execution, ongoing corporate action support, infrastructure set-up and market data reporting is a huge step forward in bringing genuine multi-asset trading capabilities to our broker clients. This diversification should allow them to grow their businesses, even in the face of an evolving regulatory landscape.
