February 26, 2021 - FCA regulated institutional broker ATFX have announced today that they have partnered with a tier-1 Prime Broker. The collaboration is part of ATFX's business expansion strategy to offer direct market access to Institutional clients from the relationships they have with Tier-1 Bank and Non-Bank providers.

ATFX transitioned into an institutional broker in 2019 after launching ATFX Connect, its Multi-Access professional trading platform. The platform serves as an automated trading venue, delivering a tailored liquidity solution to financial institutions including Hedge Funds, Asset Managers and Private Banks.

With the addition of a Tier 1 Prime Broker, ATFX have introduced an Agency Model account to accommodate institutional clients who wish to trade FX and Precious metals without having to post margin. The service has already attracted clients who can trade on tailored aggregated pricing streams and now have direct market access to multiple Tier-1 Bank and Non-Bank liquidity providers.

"The key to ATFX's success will be driven by the innovation of our experienced IT department and the continued first class customer service provided by our dedicated global team. ATFX is well-positioned as a long-term fintech partner to institutional clients and the launch of the AGENCY MODEL demonstrates our commitment to constantly deliver new products that fulfil the needs of our clients." said Wei Qiang Zhang, Managing Director of ATFX.

ATFX have continued to develop their Institutional platform and have added several new order functions designed to give clients more options and flexibility when trading. ATFX Connect offers low latency, quick order entry and competitive pricing in a stable environment with a choice of Agency or Margin configuration.

ATFX Connect also provides a bridge solution for Margin clients via oneZero, giving them access to institutional liquidity in Spot FX, Precious metals and CFDs.
