ADS Securities Hong Kong Limited has today announced the launch of its Tokyo (TY3) server which will provide Asian clients with access to ADS Securities’ market leading liquidity and technology.
The TY3 server is built around ADS Securities proprietary OREX platform which is available via FIX API or an innovative GUI. Using cross connects unique liquidity, including bank and non-bank, can be tailored to client’s requirements. The OREX Optim platform currently offers currencies and precious metals, but it has been designed to trade multi-asset classes. These assets will be brought onto the platform through 2015 and will include CFDs, futures, forwards through to equities.
ADS Securities clearly understands the markets of the Middle East and Far East, as well as the importance of the growth of emerging exchanges in the regions, highlighted by the recent successes experienced by the Dubai Gold and Commodities Exchange (DGCX) and Singapore Exchange (SGX), both of which have weathered the low volumes storm very well indeed, having arrived at a time when all eyes began to focus on the Asian markets.
ADS Securities in this particular case is shrewdly placing itself in a position in which infrastructural enhancements to its trading system taps into Japanese liquidity and brings closer proximity to other financially developed nations in the region, as well as expanding its services into investment banking and asset management.
Desmond Yeo, ADS Securities MD of Asia, sees the opening of TY3 as an important step for ADS Hong Kong, he commented: “Institutional traders across the region are extremely competitive and demand a very high quality of service. Building our OREX technology into TY3 provides them with a low latency solution with access to very high levels of liquidity, excellent execution and low rejection rates.”
OREX Optim was designed from conception as a multi-asset platform with the ability to trade a range of financial instruments from a single screen. The architecture means that trading optimisation tools and risk management functionalities work across the platform allowing, margin to be calculated taking into account all underlying assets.
Mathieu Ghanem, ADS Securities Head of Sales for Asia believes that TY3 going live with the OREX technology will be of interest to a range of brokers, banks and funds who are looking for good liquidity backed by excellent technology: “We offer a low latency sophisticated trading platform with smart routing technology, drawing from the latest developments in equity markets, to aggregate and assign liquidity. As we have developed the technology we can customise all elements from simple cascading execution algorithms through to offering a full deep white label of the platform and associated risk management technology. What we offer is flexible, scalable and state-of-the-art.”
