FXSPOTSTREAM®‘S PRICE AGGREGATION SERVICE EXPANDS WITH THE ADDITION OF FX FORWARDS AND SWAPS. AUGUST ADV SURPASSES PRIOR JUNE RECORD BY 28% AND GROWS 274% YEAR ON YEAR JERSEY CITY, N.J. – FXSpotStream® LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of LiquidityMatch LLC, today announced the continued expansion of its Service with the addition of FX Forward and Swap price streams from its sites in New York, London and Tokyo. FXSpotStream®‘s liquidity providers, which include BofA Merrill Lynch, BNP Paribas Citi, Commerzbank AG, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, J.P. Morgan, Morgan Stanley and UBS, are now able to seamlessly stream Spot, Forward and FX Swap and Spot Precious Metals prices using the existing connection. Alan F. Schwarz, CEO, stated: “As we approach the 3 year anniversary of our business we are extremely pleased with the continued growth of the Service. The addition of FX Forwards and Swaps, together with RFS functionality, is a natural extension to the existing Spot FX and Precious Metals price streaming offering. At the same time, we have remained intently focused on supporting our liquidity providers and clients. As a result, we have seen the volume supported by the Service continue to increase at a rapid pace. August was yet another ADV record for FXSpotStream® exceeding the prior ADV record set in June by 28%. Year on year August ADV increased by 274% with August ADV surpassing ADV in July by 33% supported by an 88% year on year increase in clients in August. BNP Paribas is also now live globally and trading with clients. The utility model underlying the business and the alignment of our cost structure with the need by our liquidity providers and clients to reduce the significant fees incurred in transacting with each other is meeting its objectives. As we look ahead, we expect to continue to expand the offering with the addition of products, functionality and liquidity providers.” FXSpotStream® provides a multibank FX aggregation service to clients for the purpose of executing FX Spot, Forward and Swap and Spot Precious Metals trades. Banks connected to FXSpotStream® serve as liquidity providers to clients. FXSpotStream® functions as a market utility, providing the infrastructure that facilitates the GUI and multibank API routing mechanism to route trades from clients to liquidity providers. Clients access a GUI or single API from co-location sites in New York, London and Tokyo and have the potential to communicate with all liquidity providing banks connected to the FXSpotStream® solution. FXSpotStream® does not charge brokerage fees to clients or liquidity banks. Liam Hudson, BofA Merrill Lynch’s Managing Director and Global Head of FX Ecommerce Trading, said “BofA Merrill Lynch has been involved with FXSpotStream® from its inception and we continue to be impressed by how quickly the Service has grown with the addition of new liquidity providers, clients and functionality. Take up among our own clients has been extremely fast and we now have clients trading in all regions. The no brokerage fee model combined with a transparent and fully disclosed trading environment works well for us and our clients.” “We are delighted with the company’s growth, stability and reliability as it supports a growing number of liquidity providers and clients transacting more volume over the Service,” added Paul Scott, Global Head of eFX at Commerzbank Corporates & Markets. “The increased volume supported by the Service has exceeded our short term expectations. The addition of FX Forwards and Swaps to the existing product range will provide us and our clients with further opportunities to benefit from the Service.”
