United Fintech plans to fully acquire FairXchange
FairXchange is a data science firm specializing in Foreign Exchange markets founded in 2016 by Guy Hopkins, a former Bloomberg veteran and head of FX at Morgan Stanley. Specializing in microstructural analysis of financial markets, the firm offers better transparency around execution performance.
FairXchange has no affiliation with any liquidity providers or trading venues, and is already being used by an extensive client base including several global financial institutions. The company’s analytical product, Horizon, analyzes all relevant transaction and pricing data and helps facilitate mutually profitable data-driven discussions with its liquidity providers and liquidity consumers.
In 2021, United Fintech acquired a minority stake of 25% in FairXchange for an undisclosed amount, with the intention of fully acquiring the firm over the next few years through a multi-stage takeover. In the meantime, FairXchange partnered with several big names within the FX industry, including FXSpotStream and 24 Exchange,
