Ramy Soliman, CEO of Stater Global Markets explains,
We have spent the last six months assessing the leading technology vendors in this industry across all key areas of the business – from front-end platforms and pricing aggregation tools to bridge and connectivity providers. Our strategy is to offer best of breed solutions to our client base and I am confident that our rigorous procurement process has enabled us to identify the highest quality technology partners.
We have not only been reviewing technology vendors but have also been assessing Liquidity Providers in order to offer a greater choice to clients. Our fund and retail broker clients, in particular, were keen for us to extend our product offering beyond Spot FX liquidity and this seemed a natural evolution for our business. We now offer CFDs in indices and commodities, with high quality pricing from our top tier non-bank counterparties.
Stater Global Markets offers clients direct access to Tier 1 bank and non-bank liquidity, clearing and institutional grade technology. The London-based firm is a matched principal broker which takes no risk. All trades are passed on to Liquidity Providers on an STP basis.
