abdelaziz Fathi

Gavin White, Invast Global CEO, was invited to join a panel session on prime liquidity at the Finance Magnates London Summit 2022 taking place on 22-23 November 2022. This session will highlight some serious challenges to the liquidity provision in the financial markets and bold potential solutions.

Since its launch in 2012, the London Summit has earned the trust of key finance and Fintech influencers and is renowned for generating business, networking and the famous FMLS awards. This year, upwards of 3,500+ attendees, 130+ speakers, and 100+ exhibitors are expected to participate, constituting leading retail FX brokers, fintech startups, investment banks, crypto exchanges, and service providers.

Featuring a wide range of distinguished speakers, panel discussions, and hands-on workshops, the London Summit will have something for all attendees.

Invast Global CEO, Gavin White, will be featured in one of the most anticipated panels in the main Speaker Hall on November 23.  Titled ‘Prime Time: Liquidity Between Retail Institutional Trading’ the industry veteran of over 30 years’ experience will discuss in depth brokers’ pain points. These include several areas of focus, including their execution needs and the evolution of the FX space.

In what has been an interesting year of developments for the Prime Broker industry, this panel will prove very insightful heading into 2023 as we hear from the experts at the coalface of the rapidly changing and always dynamic industry.

Invast Global has made headlines last month when it revealed plans to acquire GMO-Z.com Trade UK, the FCA-regulated subsidiary of GMO Internet Inc. (TYO:9449). This expansion into the UK will give the Australian headquartered Prime of Prime broker a foothold into the UK market.

Invast Global has been also ramping up hiring to capture more market share in a booming PoP environment. Traditionally, only the largest funds and institutions have been able to get access to the benefits provided by the non-bank market makers. This is because access has relied on the client having a tier one prime broker relationship.

The recent expansion also follows growing global demand for Invast’s PurePrime facility. Tailored for institutional clients, brokerages, hedge funds and sophisticated traders, PurePrime offers optimised FX and CFD liquidity via multiple trading GUIs or API, backed by tier one prime brokers.

The acquisition of GMO-Z.com, whilst still seeking approval by the Finance Conduct Authority (FCA), will be another milestone reached as Invast Global builds a global network of distribution channels in jurisdictions widely regarded for their regulatory standing.

Gavin White commented: “The acquisition will speed up our global expansion plans that began with the office in Cyprus. This gives us access to the UK market that will further enhance our value proposition to our existing clients and enable us to continue to grow and service more clients”
