Reactive Markets launches liquidity network for crypto OTC markets
“As institutional Crypto trading volumes continue to rise, we have seen a sharp increase in clients looking to improve their execution by trading directly with their Liquidity Providers using our Switchboard network.”
Reactive Markets has launched its OTC market utility for disclosed trading, supported by five of the leading institutional Crypto Liquidity Providers (LPs): Cumberland DRW, Flow Traders, Galaxy Digital, Genesis Trading and Wintermute.
Switchboard is the name of the newly launched cross-asset trading and price streaming network. The platform is an open and transparent liquidity network for Crypto and FX trading, where clients can trade on a fully disclosed basis with their relationship LPs at no cost, the firm stated.
Phil Morris, Chief Executive Officer of Reactive Markets, said: “As institutional Crypto trading volumes continue to rise, we have seen a sharp increase in clients looking to improve their execution by trading directly with their Liquidity Providers using our Switchboard network.

Folkert Joling, Chief Trading Officer at Flow Traders, commented: “Flow Traders is excited about the launch of Reactive Markets Switchboard and is delighted to be engaging as an early adopter Liquidity Provider on Switchboard. This low latency platform via a single harmonised API will enable Flow Traders as a leading Liquidity Provider to provide competitive disclosed OTC FX and Crypto liquidity and execution.”

Earlier this year, IS Prime, part of ISAM Capital Markets, launched a new trading GUI and risk system with Reactive Markets, particularly aimed at its growing client base of FX hedge funds and asset managers.
The partnership with Reactive Markets combines features of IS Prime’s back office portal, Terminus, and gives clients a more streamlined trading experience. Clients can view and manage their risk in a single place, whether using IS Prime’s desktop or mobile app.
