Edgewater opens a new São Paulo office

Technology provider Edgewater Markets announced extensive new hires and a new São Paulo office. Its new office provides financial institutions with white label solutions, customized technology and liquidity aggregation.

According to the official announcement, the move is motivated by worldwide demand growth for the company’s FX trading technology and execution services.

Brazil is a tremendous market for us, and one of the fastest-growing participants in currency trading globally. Edgewater believes strongly in ‘boots on the ground,’ where our uniquely experienced FX professionals, armed with unparalleled local knowledge, are closest to the markets, developments and players. With our significant and growing client base in Brazil, we’re excited to have São Paulo join our offices in Santiago, Mexico City.

We’re excited to be contributing to the growth and development of FX in Latin America, helping domestic markets expand their reach into the global institutional buy-side and sell-side trading communities.
