Rick Steves

“We built our SaaS technology for our customers and it’s an absolute pleasure to work with SFC. It’s the perfect example of why we do what we do: to help our customers be the best version of themselves with the help of our technology and allowing them to focus on what matters most to them, looking after their customers and growing their business.”

Brokerage firm Swiss Finance Corporation has selected Integral as its cloud-based SaaS technology to modernize their offering and bring eFX trading to their customers.

SFC was founded in 1988 and offers Spot FX, Options, Forwards, NDFs, precious metals, equities, fixed income, payments, and more.

Integral’s end-to-end workflow and eFX trading technology was rolled out in a matter of weeks, allowing SFC to focus on growing its business and optimizing its yield.

“Highest standards of pricing, liquidity and reliability”

The SaaS solution includes liquidity aggregation, price generation, distribution, risk management, and analytics, and enables clients to run their trading businesses more effectively.

Integral is the currency technology partner to hundreds of financial institutions, including banks, brokers and cross-border payment companies. Its SaaS solution is offered at a fixed subscription cost.

Harpal Sandhu, CEO, Integral, commented: “We built our SaaS technology for our customers and it’s an absolute pleasure to work with SFC. It’s the perfect example of why we do what we do: to help our customers be the best version of themselves with the help of our technology and allowing them to focus on what matters most to them, looking after their customers and growing their business.”

Paul Hayward, Leadership Team, SFC added: “Swiss Finance is committed to providing its clients with best-in-class products and choosing Integral as our trading platform technology partner is further evidence of this. As a multi-asset financial services provider operating 24 hours a day, our customers demand the highest standards of pricing, liquidity and reliability. Integral has an excellent reputation and we are confident that this partnership will complement our ambitious growth plans in the years ahead.”

Integral launched trading and client distribution platform for crypto

Earlier this week, Integral announced the launch of Integral Digital: a full extension of its trading and client distribution platform, traditionally catered to FX, to support cryptocurrencies and fiat-backed stablecoins.

Integral Digital was developed in conjunction with Mint Exchange Inc. and supports Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Stellar, CoDEX, and 100+ ERC-20 tokens. The platform caters to both regulated and unregulated digital asset businesses globally.

Services include aggregation and connectivity to over 30 crypto liquidity providers, desktop and mobile client trading, risk management, and hot and cold wallet custody solutions.

Available on a monthly subscription basis, the platform can easily integrate with in-house and third-party providers via FIX and Rest APIs.

Integral Digital also offers a fully integrated Prime Brokerage solution providing direct market access to multiple exchanges and market makers via a single account. This maximizes netting across multiple venues and reduces collateral requirements.
