FX

With competition becoming fiercer and the structure of the FX market changing rapidly in response to global political and economic events, Saxo’s clients benefit from our strategic investments not only in new technology, but in compliance and the promotion of the efficient, fair and orderly operation of the FX market.

Technology Driven FX Prime Brokerage

Our strong focus on technology means that, unlike traditional prime brokers, we can service the middle tier of the market in a viable way. Saxo’s FX PB solution offers what mid-tier institutional clients are looking for: full electronic access to a broad range of liquidity with a comprehensive back-office solution.

Saxo utilises the latest technology including pre-trade risk management and kill switches, meaning that we are able to manage risk in real-time and allocate credit more efficiently.

Order Driven Execution

Saxo is constantly enhancing our solutions and offerings to ensure that our clients keep ahead of the market and develop their business further.

The adoption of regulatory requirements and applicable codes of conduct, including the FX Global Code, are key drivers towards differentiating ourselves in the industry as the most transparent and responsible foreign exchange trading provider.

For FX Spot and FX Forwards, Order Driven execution provides increased liquidity, transparency and control, with the potential for benefitting from price improvement.

  • Aggregated liquidity feeds from Tier 1 banks: DB, CITI, BARX, MS, JPM, NOM, GS, CS, UBS, BNP, HSBC, RBS, Commerz, ANZ, RBC and State Street
  • Non-bank liquidity: XTX, Citadel, Virtu and others
  • ECNs: EBS, Reuters, Currenex, Hotspot, Bloomberg Tradebook, Fastmatch, Gain GTX, LMAX

Responsible leverage

Saxo offers tiered margin methodology as a mechanism to manage political and economic events that may lead to the market becoming volatile and changing rapidly.

Customised orders

Saxo offers Resting and Immediate or Cancel (IOC) orders that enable clients to assume greater control of their trading through user defined Price Tolerance.

Transparency in pricing, execution and liquidity

In an increasingly complex reporting and compliance environment, Saxo’s fully digitised and transparent value chain helps clients meet regulatory requirements.

At Saxo, price improvements are passed on to clients.
