MetaTrader 5 increasingly adopted to disrupt the fund management industry

Rick Steves

PWE Capital plans to disrupt the fund management industry by redefining R.O.I. and transparency is core to that goal.

MetaTrader 5 advances its hedging functionality

Parker Winston Eckhardt (PWE) has launched MetaTrader 5 platform for hedge funds as it takes a modern approach to asset management for funds and family offices, based on algorithmic trading.

The implementation of the MetaQuotes platform grants PWE Capital a comfortable, flexible and productive environment for increasing client asset growth.

Manas D. Kumaar, Chief Executive Officer of PWE Capital, commented: “Given our dependence on speed, the performance features of MetaTrader 5, combined with the familiar algo engine, gave us the confidence that we had found the right partner for scaling our business in line with our requirements.”

“The fund management industry, particularly the currency market, is often seen as being shrouded in opaqueness. MetaTrader 5 empowers our fund by facilitating a transparent trading environment. This transparency is crucial to the performance of our algorithms. The transparency of MetaTrader 5 provides us with the clarity needed to execute high-frequency trades with consistent precision.”

Renat Fatkhullin, Chief Executive Officer at MetaQuotes, commented: “We are excited to support PWE Capital in its rapid business growth and strong partnership with MetaTrader 5. Our hedge funds platform provides the most advanced tools for professional algo trading, and therefore outstanding growth of investors’ assets.”

PWE Capital plans to disrupt the fund management industry by redefining R.O.I. and transparency is core to that goal. MetaTrader 5 for hedge funds is expected to meet the company’s business model based on machine intelligence, scalability, and speed of order execution.

Founded last year, the firm develops trading algorithms combined with a Direct-To-Bank trading environment to facilitate high-frequency trading in the currency, commodities, and derivatives markets.

MetaTrader 5 was launched to address the needs of brokerages, banks, and exchanges, but its updated version released in 2020 is also a breakthrough platform offering a turnkey solution for mutual funds, prop trading, and investment companies right out of the box.

MetaTrader 5, successor to the popular MT4, offers retail forex traders many features that were previously only available on institutional level platforms. MetaQuotes has been successfully onboarding retail brokers to its new MetaTrader 5 platform.

Tickmill has recently joined the trend as MT5 is packaged with its regular account types. The terminal is available on desktop, web, Android and iOS devices. Tickmill traders can trade a variety of CFD asset classes, including Forex, stock indices, metals, bonds and stocks.
