FairXchange, the data science firm specialising in FX markets and part of the United Fintech Group, has launched Horizon Sentinel, an AI-driven alerting tool designed to instantly identify commercially relevant changes in a financial institution’s liquidity and counterparty activity. Sentinel aims to significantly reduce the time spent on analysing FX liquidity data, enabling financial institutions to maximise identified opportunities. The tool automatically notifies compliance and management teams of specific changes such as significant transaction cost variations or notable client trading activity shifts.

Available as an optional module within the Horizon data analytics platform, Horizon Sentinel complements FairXchange’s existing analytics by providing rigorous period-to-period comparisons and data-driven insights. The tool has been successfully trialled by several long-standing clients, including Sucden Financial.

Guy Hopkins, Founder and CEO of FairXchange, commented: “During our testing period, Sentinel has had an overwhelmingly positive response, transforming conversations between liquidity consumers and liquidity providers.  In high complexity trading environments, it is becoming progressively harder for people to keep on top of all the recent developments. Sentinel watches your business for you and provides timely, automated notification of important changes as soon as they occur. This improves productivity, substantially reduces opportunity cost and allows clients to focus on what adds the most value both to their own firm and their counterparties”.

Wayne Roworth, Global Head of FX at Sucden Financial, added: “We have been actively using the Sentinel AI tool in Horizon for several months, and it has had a substantial positive impact on our business. Our liquidity providers very much value the fact that we can play an active role in monitoring the flow, highlighting areas of potential concern that we can then work on together.  The dialogue that this data facilitates, and the speed with which we can act upon it, has resulted in numerous improvements to our liquidity that have allowed us to increase our client volumes and associated revenues.”
