Saxo Bank is boosting its FX prime brokerage solution with the addition of a cross-collateralisation facility between PrimeXM sites in New York, London and Tokyo where it provides FX direct market access.
The facility will enable the firm’s prime clients with global liquidity needs to further optimise their collateral by synchronising balances and exposures across the three primary global FX locations.
Saxo says the cross-collateralisation facility is a natural step in the evolution of the service which will help its clients avoid over allocation of capital by giving them the ability to use a single pool of collateral across the three major global FX sites, while maintaining a pre-trade credit check per site.
Louisa Kwok, head of prime of prime sales and products at ADS Securities London, explains to Profit & Loss deputy editor, Galen Stops, why there’s room for numerous different prime services models in the FX market.
With many of the traditional FX prime brokers (PBs) being increasingly selective about who they will offer their services to, this has created a gap in the market that many firms appear eager to fill. Subsequently, numerous prime services offerings are being touted to market participants under the banner of prime-of-prime.
