LoopFX Collaborates with FactSet to Integrate Its FX Trading Technology into Portware System

Subscribe to our newsletter

LoopFX, the FX trading venue for large spot trades, has announced a strategic partnership with FactSet to integrate LoopFX’s unique ‘Peer-To-Bank’ matching engine technology into Portware, FactSet’s FX execution management system (EMS). Set to commence in early 2024, the integration is designed to streamline FX trading for FactSet’s clients, enabling them to access LoopFX’s services directly through their existing Portware trading interface.

LoopFX’s technology is designed to facilitate large FX trades, typically over $10 million, by offering a dark pool for large block liquidity. This approach aims to minimise information leakage, reduce trading costs and enhance execution efficiency for both buy-side and sell-side clients.
