Rick Steves

“It was specifically set up to satisfy B2B demand for essential infrastructure in digital asset markets and FX.”

Talos has integrated with London-based BCB Group to provide access to a complete suite of front, middle, and back-office digital asset trading solutions.

The institutional digital asset trading technology specialist was built by TradFi veterans to provide a scalable, market-proven, end-to-end platform offering market connectivity, smart order routing, and proprietary execution algorithms to financial firms worldwide.

BCB Group is a banking partner for major players in FX and crypto, enabling them to load fiat currency and cryptocurrencies for payments, operations, and trading purposes.

The partnership allows BCB Group to offer best pricing and execution in both crypto and FX, across a broad range of assets and quick settlement. The integration allows Talos to expand its footprint in Europe, where BCB Group is well established.

Essential infrastructure in digital asset markets and FX

Lux Thiagarajah, Head of Markets at BCB Group, said: “BCB Group has scaled rapidly under the leadership of top industry players in finance, regulation and technology. It was specifically set up to satisfy B2B demand for essential infrastructure in digital asset markets and FX. We are laser focused on delivering the best possible experience for our clients, and with Talos’s best in class offering and their incredible support, we are now able to offer best pricing and execution in both crypto and FX. This empowers us to provide market leading service across a broad range of assets and quick settlement, all through the gold standard UI for the job. We look forward to working with Anton and the team at Talos to provide more clients with institutional grade execution.”

Anton Katz, Co-Founder & CEO of Talos, commented: “Spurred on by unwavering institutional adoption of digital assets worldwide, Talos continues to expand its presence throughout the world. Key to that expansion is the ability to partner with like-minded service providers such as BCB Group who have a reputation for reliability and leading-edge technology to support their vision. BCB Group’s European base and specialist expertise serves our global growth ambitions well, and provides both client bases with a best-in-class, durable financial infrastructure to power the totality of their digital asset trading.”

Talos continues to expand its presence throughout the world

In November 2022, Talos welcomed Amber Group to its partner network of over 40 liquidity venues that includes leading exchanges such as Binance, Coinbase, and FTX, as well as top OTCs & market markers.

The platform caters to large and sophisticated market participants and their end clients and provides a trading platform, lending marketplace, data and analytics, and portfolio and settlement tools. These are all offered directly or through service providers on a white-label basis.

Through Talos, clients can transact end-to-end without concern for unnecessary intermediary risk or potential conflicts of interest.

In October 2022, 24 Exchange has joined the partner network of Talos, effectively becoming a Liquidity Provider for customers of the leading provider of institutional digital asset trading technology.

Talos users can now access liquidity found on the 24 Exchange global platform via its unique “central dealer” model in Crypto Spot. This model, where all counterparties face 24 Exchange Broker LTD, allows for seamless execution and settlement of Crypto Spot trades.

Founded by ECN technology specialist and former CEO of NY-based FastMatch, Dmitri Galinov, 24 Exchange provides a 24/7 platform for institutional participants looking for competitive fees and a high quality service on Crypto Spot, Crypto NDFs, FX Swaps, FX NDFs and FX Spot.
