BidFX, a trading platform and provider of electronic foreign exchange (forex) trading solutions, announced this Thursday that RBC Capital Markets has added its Algo suite to the company’s Execution Management System (EMS) platform.
Under the agreement, RBC Capital Markets’ Algo suite is available to all RBC clients immediately. On BidFX, the offering has already seen a great demand from institutional clients, the statement released today said.
BidFX, which is a subsidiary of TradingScreen, has been expanding into the institutional buy-side. During this process, the company has noticed a high demand for RBC and their Algo offering, according to John McGrath, the Chief Revenue Officer of BidFX.
“Algo’s are now one of the most common methods for buyside’s to measure their FX execution which is why it is so pleasing to add more providers of RBC’s quality to the BidFX platform,” McGrath continued.
