smartTrade announces strong growth in 2018 sustained by product innovation and addition of new clients globally

smartTradeTechnologies, a multi-asset electronic trading pioneer, concludes 2018 with strong growth sustained by new product launches as well as the addition of new buy and sell-side clients in Asia, Europe and the Americas.

The company growth is backed by innovative product releases such as the launch of cryptocurrency support in LiquidityFX, smartTrade’s foreign exchange trading platform. On top of its 100 out-of-the-box connectors to liquidity venues, smartTrade added connectivity to the main crypto exchanges. smartTrade also continues to extend its footprint with smartAnalytics, its powerful multi-asset big data analytics, and smartFI, its flexible fixed income offering which have been implemented by clients looking to meet regulatory requirements and electronify their business. The fact that both platforms, smartFI and LiquidityFX, share the same core technology and support multi-asset trading has greatly contributed to smartTrade's adoption. smartTrade also keeps investing in R&D in multiple areas such as blockchain, machine learning and other AI technologies to stay ahead of innovation.

In 2018, smartTrade’s solutions received strong market recognition by industry experts and won multiple awards: best aggregation platform, best order management system, best solution for records retention system.

David Vincent, CEO of smartTrade said: “Now more than ever, we're experiencing strong demand from buy and sell-side firms looking for real cross-asset and cutting-edge trading solutions. Relying on a natively built cross-asset platform is a real asset for financial firms looking for a short time to market. Clients using our foreign exchange platform, LiquidityFX, have been able to add and trade cryptocurrencies in no time and to leverage crossing capabilities with other asset classes such as fixed income.”
