Equiti Capital has deployed Lucera LumeFX’s aggregator that offers latency execution and expansive connectivity to the FX market.

As a desk the high fill rates and aggressive pricing we provide to our electronic clients is paramount, the low latency of the co-located infrastructure provided by Lucera, coupled with the excellent liquidity management tools and analytics, helps us to this end.

“Lucera’s LumeFX platform allows Equiti to provide customizable liquidity streams to every client, aiding the matching of client interests to reduce market impact, while monitoring risks, including pre-trade credit checks, to ensure business continuity even in volatility spikes without compromising our dynamic risk management.”
