British multilateral trading facility (MTF) for FX, LMAX Exchange, has announced that it will widen the distribution of liquidity from its Tokyo-based matching engine via PrimeXM.
The announcement comes after PrimeXM has completed the setup of an institutional grade hosting infrastructure in TY3, with XCore execution engine and MT4 servers co-located and cross-connected to LMAX Exchange liquidity.
Through the use of PrimeXM’s hosting framework, clients are able to access the unique no ‘Last Look’ liquidity from LMAX Exchange at ultra-low latency and benefit from robust, reliable and consistent execution, whether connecting via FIX or MT4, as a white label solution or through their own MT4 server.
This is the latest step in expanding client access to LMAX Exchange liquidity into new regions and trading segments.
Richard Bartlett, Head of Global Sales at PrimeXM, said: “This partnership demonstrates both firms’ on-going commitment to extending our market leading services throughout the globe. Any operation that has a presence in the Asia Pacific region can now take advantage of this unique relationship, by connecting to LMAX Exchange liquidity in TY3 at sub-millisecond speeds via the use of PrimeXM’s world renowned bridging and XCore technology.”
“We have worked very closely with LMAX Exchange on many successful projects over the last few years, and as both firms share the same passion for being leaders in our respective fields, it made perfect sense to bolster our relationship further by establishing this high quality offering in TY3.” concluded Mr. Bartlett.
Andreas Wigstrom, Head of International Development at LMAX Exchange, added: “Institutional traders in Asia Pacific are an important growth segment for us, and we are excited to offer them exchange quality execution and access to our streaming, firm limit order liquidity from top tier banks and financial institutions, via PrimeXM’s leading technology and dedicated infrastructure in TY3.
