State Street Corporation is enhancing FX Connect, its FX execution venue, with new trading technology to provide a more agile and innovative platform for clients.

“In today’s highly competitive environment where firms face increased complexity and regulatory requirements, it’s vital that we work with our clients to shape our product and solution strategy,” says Beverley Doherty, global head of FX Connect. “Our new enhancements will be instrumental in helping us accomplish this goal, demonstrating FX Connect’s ability to innovate and improve products that create solutions for our clients’ evolving needs.”
Through a complete transformation using HTML5, FX Connect is creating a trading ‘cockpit’ that provides order management and execution through a single, secure interface. Platform upgrades will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of execution for the real money community. Developments also include live indicative rates, the estimated percentage away from an order’s limit price, colour coding of orders based on their percentage away from their custom threshold settings and customisable order alerts.
A key pillar of the roadmap for 2019 will also be further integration with BestX, its Foreign Exchange and Fixed Income Best Execution Analytics platform, to build a monthly summary Transaction Cost Analysis report for all its clients based on their FX Connect trading data. Enhancements will be provided around the granularity and the breadth of data sets that clients can access and move into a real-time mode.
