The addition of Jefferies Financial Services into the oneZero Ecosystem will bring extra liquidity and access to the prime broker’s electronic client trading platform with FX market making in over 50 instruments.
oneZero Financial Systems has announced that Jefferies, the American multinational investment bank and provider of capital markets services, institutional brokerage, securities research, and asset management, has joined the oneZero Ecosystem.
The ecosystem is a distribution channel of multi-asset class liquidity for the largest global network of brokers, prime brokers and hedge funds. Members are able to deliver their liquidity to other end-customers through oneZero’s Liquidity Hub, as well as manage their trading book and customize their liquidity through comprehensive credit, reporting and risk management tools.
Andrew Ralich, Chief Executive Officer of oneZero, commented: “Jefferies joining our EcoSystem is great news for our existing users. Jefferies has been a leading financial services company for over 55 years. Their participation gives our customers new access to liquidity and clearing from a top-tier investment banking firm.”
Brandon Mulvihill, Global Head of FX Prime Brokerage at Jefferies, said: “We are excited to join the oneZero community. This partnership unlocks institutional liquidity directly to brokers within oneZero’s EcoSystem, creating a direct to source offering.”
Brad Bechtel, Global Head of Foreign Exchange at Jefferies, added: “Over the last year, Jefferies has taken considerable measures to boost the firm’s eFX capabilities and scale to better improve our client offering. We are thrilled to join oneZero’s EcoSystem to distribute our prices to global brokers.”
Other market participants have recently joined the ecosystem, including the New Zealand-based retail FX broker Fullerton Markets and CMC Markets Institutional, the B2B face of the financial derivatives dealer.
In late March 2018, CMC Markets Institutional joined the ecosystem in order to disseminate its multi-asset liquidity feed to a wider range of accredited counterparties, using a seamless automated solution for market connectivity and price distribution.
