Spotware partners with Citi to offer liquidity through its cTrader and cAlgo platforms

Spotware Systems today announced a new partnership to fully integrate CitiFX TradeStream with its cTrader and cAlgo FX platforms.

Spotware Systems, a financial technology provider developing solutions for the eFX industry, is making fast headway in the world of retail eFX. Its flagship trading platform, cTrader, has been adopted by more than 25 brokers and banks in 2012.

CitiFX TradeStream is a market-leading liquidity and margin solution that allows mid-sized institutional customers to access high-quality liquidity sourced from multiple contributors without the need for a prime broker or a third-party aggregation solution, all whilst facing Citi as a single counterparty.

Andrey Pavlov, Spotware Systems CEO, says that the partnership with Citi is a meaningful step in cTrader’s continuous enhancement of its liquidity options. “CitiFX is one of the most trusted names in the industry. That’s why we’re delighted to have integrated with CitiFX Tradestream as we advance our efforts to provide our clients with trading solutions that harness powerful partnerships with some of the world’s leading providers.”

cTrader is a direct market access platform which has been attracting brokers looking to enhance or introduce NDD and STP solutions. The platform is widely viewed as a means of access to an increasingly sophisticated client base concerned with issues of trust, latency and transparency.

Alex Knight, Global Head of FX Margin Trading at Citi, commented “Spotware is an excellent choice of partner for CitiFX Tradestream as we continue to expand our global presence with this exciting new product. We’re delighted to collaborate with a company that places as much importance as we do on fast, deep and transparent liquidity. cTrader users will be the ultimate beneficiary of the work that we do together to provide leading liquidity solutions through the platform.”

Ilya Holeu, Spotware’s CMO and product manager, added “With the quality of trading technology from Spotware, and a best-in-industry liquidity solution from Citi, the platforms become an even more enticing offer for brokers who want scalable eFX technology, while delivering higher ROI than traditional third party platforms
