Features

Algorithmic Trading
Portware FX offers traders an embedded suite of customizable execution strategies that can help firms increase trading efficiencies, automate workflows and improve execution quality, all while maintaining relationships with their global liquidity providers. In addition, Portware provides integrated access to a wide range of algorithmic strategies from third party providers, including all leading FX dealer banks. Firms wishing to run their own trading strategies can easily develop, back test and deploy proprietary algorithms directly in Portware FX, or use Strategy Server in conjunction with our liquidity aggregation engine for ultra-low latency algorithmic order execution.
Transaction Cost Analysis
All Portware FX clients have access to FX Liquidity Monitor (FXLM), Portware’s TCA and post-trade reporting toolset that gives traders greater visibility into their trading performance. Users can benchmark their performance against an array of data points and compare execution quality and pricing across all liquidity providers, either in real-time or via comprehensive month end reporting.
Support for all Order Types and Trading Strategies
Portware FX supports spot, forwards, swaps, and NDF’s. Clients can execute versus streaming prices, leverage request for quote (RFQ) and request for stream (RFS) order types, use one of Portware’s embedded algorithmic strategies, or engage an algorithm from one of our broker partners.
End-to-End Systems Integration
Portware FX integrates seamlessly with all order management systems (OMS’s), as well as all downstream trade reporting and reconciliation systems such as Traiana and Logiscope. The system supports all internal compliance rules and restricted broker lists, bringing at-trade risk management to the front office.
Flexible Deployment Options
Clients can deploy Portware on site or leverage Portware’s global cloud solution for reduced operational overhead, streamlined deployment and ease of access to all liquidity providers.
