Trading technology and financial infrastructure provider Itiviti has launched Itiviti FX, a foreign exchange trading solution that the firm says is built for today’s dynamic FX market landscape and designed for compliance with the latest regulatory requirements including MiFID II.
Using a modular, app-based architecture Itiviti FX combines out-of-the-box FX trading capabilities with flexibility, enabling highly scalable and easily customised solutions. It offers cross-asset trading functionality, including algorithmic trading, distribution service, order and pre-trade risk. It also features a liquidity aggregation service, which allows for mixing of different types of liquidity from multiple sources.
SEB has announced that it is the first Scandinavian bank to offer FX algo trading to its clients through multibank portals Bloomberg and FXall.

The bank says clients will completely own their order execution, and will be able to select their preferred strategy and follow the execution without the need to contact their salesperson at the bank.
