The necessity to provide more refined, broader liquidity is most certainly on the agenda for prime brokerages and liquidity providers.

Today, CFH Clearing has exemplified this dynamic by announcing that hot on the heels of the company’s selection of BNP Paribas as its new prime broker, the company has introduced a new liquidity service which has been launched under the designation of ClearConnect.

The new ClearConnect service provides institutional clients with straight forward connectivity to a range of FX liquidity providers through prime brokerage and direct bank relationships.

With the new ClearConnect service, a wide range of price feeds via a range of liquidity venues which include Tier one banks, multilateral trading facilities and ECNs such as Hotspot and Currenex can be accessed and tailored to suit the needs of the trader.

Nick Mortimer, Head of Prime Brokerage and Clearing at CFH Clearing today made a commercial statement on the launch of the new service

“This really bucks the trend where clients have found it increasingly difficult to maintain or enter the PB space due to increased capital requirements, trading conditions and costs. ClearConnect is an ultra-easy and cost effective way to access a diverse pool of liquidity that can be tailored to best suit the needs of the client’s underlying business and trading style”

CFH clients can access ClearConnect liquidity via various solutions which connect via FIX API, as well as multiple platform interfaces including ClearPro, ClearWeb, Tradable, NetStation, ClearVision and third party providers such as MT4 and OlfaTrade’s SFX.
