Linear Investments Partners Integral to Expand FX Platform

Prime broker and hedge fund incubator Linear Investments has reached an agreement with Integral that will provide Linear clients with the same level of functionality for FX it already offers for equities, derivatives, and fixed income services.

The deployment of Integral’s cloud-based BankFX has enabled Linear Investments to customise its FX platform with sophisticated pricing and risk management tools. BankFX integrates with Integral OCX, an FX OTC exchange that gathers a wide variety of FX market participants into a single network of liquidity, adding an attractive feature to Linear’s offering.

Christopher Laird, head of institutional FX at Linear, says: “We examined a variety of options, and in selecting the Integral platform we are confident that we are providing our clients with a genuine ‘best of breed’ offering. While FX is not our core service, the addition of this capability will complement our existing investment services and enable clients to transact all their business under one roof, allowing easier flow of business, one point of contact and financial benefits of scale.”
