Subscribe to our newsletter

QuantHouse continues to build out its API Ecosystem with the addition of CMC Markets. This will give financial firms within the ecosystem easy and efficient access to CMC’s platform, which supports trading in global single stock constituents, equity indices, FX, commodities and treasury derivatives.

Recent additions to the qh API Ecosystem include Jane Street Financial’s systematic internaliser (SI) and Exchange Data International.

Commenting on the inclusion of CMC in the ecosystem, Anthony Edwards, institutional sales manager at CMC Markets, says: “Our clients have been asking us to give them the ability to access additional asset classes, so with this in mind we have been developing our new CMC Prime platforms and API technology. This will allow our institutional counterparties to directly access an extended range of instruments, all from a single provider.”

The tie-up makes CMC execution services accessible to hedge fund and brokerage clients in more than 22 financial data centres across the globe through the QuantHouse network. QuantHouse’s client and partner community of more than 500 participants will also be able to gain global access to CMC services.

Stephane Leroy, business co-founder and chief revenue officer at QuantHouse, says: “CMC Markets shares the same ethos as QuantHouse – to provide easy API connectivity on a low latency basis. This tie-up ensures QuantHouse’s clients will benefit from quick, efficient and low-cost access to trading on the CMC platform. At the same time, CMC clients will benefit from easy access to the API Ecosystem for a number of trading services made available by our members.”
