LMAX Exchange connects to 4OTC’s Libre Liquidity Bridge

Rick Steves

“Across all our exchanges the quality and depth of liquidity are key. The connectivity with 4OTC’s Libre service will enable more Liquidity Providers to price on LMAX Exchange execution venues, as well as leverage our distribution scale and global exchange infrastructure.”

LMAX Exchange, a prominent institutional exchange for global FX, and 4OTC, a provider of low latency connectivity services for Digital Assets and FX, announced their collaboration.

LMAX, which has recently launched NDF trading in Singapore, is now connected with 4OTC’s Libre Liquidity Bridge service, which facilitates ultra-low latency streaming of FX liquidity on LMAX Exchange venues.

FX Liquidity via LD4, NY4, SG1, and TY3

Libre offers connectivity to LMAX Exchange’s global execution venues in London (LD4), New York (NY4), Singapore (SG1), and Tokyo (TY3). This connection enhances the management of connectivity, attracts additional liquidity to the exchange, and reduces the time required for new Liquidity Providers to join.

4OTC specializes in technology solutions for Liquidity Providers, OTC trading desks, and exchanges in the FX and Digital Asset markets. Its new Libre service provides robust co-located connectivity to various Liquidity Providers and venues dealing in Digital Assets and FX.

“More Liquidity Providers can price on LMAX execution venues”

Daniel Karakanna, Head of Liquidity Management and Analytics, EMEA, at LMAX Exchange, stated, “Across all our exchanges the quality and depth of liquidity are key. The connectivity with 4OTC’s Libre service will enable more Liquidity Providers to price on LMAX Exchange execution venues, as well as leverage our distribution scale and global exchange infrastructure.”

Mark Price, Co-Founder of 4OTC, said, “LMAX Exchange is recognised for its industry leading proprietary exchange technology. Liquidity Providers making firm prices need consistent and predictable low latency and Libre has been architected to match these requirements. 4OTC is a specialist in ultra-low latency connectivity, which, combined with LMAX’s focus on performance, makes a great match for the Libre service. We look forward to continuing this successful partnership.”

Part of LMAX Group, LMAX Exchange provides an efficient market structure and transparent, precise, consistent execution for various market participants, including funds, banks, proprietary trading firms, institutional brokers, and asset managers.

LMAX Exchange operates multiple global institutional FX exchanges, an FCA-regulated MTF, and a MAS-regulated RMO. It enables institutions worldwide to trade on a central limit order book with firm limit order liquidity from leading global banks and non-bank entities.
