Professional and institutional clientele can gain access to Britannia’s deep Spot, FWD and NDF liquidity pool over Voice, GUI or API.
Our FX servers are based in LD4 ensuring ultra-low latency. Clients have access to both Lucera and Flextrade with smart order routing systems to ensure the best possible fill ratios whilst FIX back office integration allows deals to hit instantaneously a client’s back office or prime broker.
Britannia can deliver bespoke streams that suit your latency and fill ratio requirements with both full amount or aggregated streams. Liquidity can be constructed using bank, non-bank, ECN pools or using the internal Britannia network.
Our prime broker relationship with Standard Chartered or Natwest ensures we can accept both give up and margin FX accounts.
Britannia also operates a fully serviced options dealing desk, providing voice coverage on Plain Vanilla, Barrier, Exotics and Payout options on all major currency pairs, crosses and EM currencies.
The Non Deliverable Forward (NDF) markets have seen considerable growth in recent years particularly in the emerging Asian economies. Imposed FX restrictions have led private companies, investors and non domestic players to seek an alternative for their hedging and speculative needs.
No exchange takes place of the two currencies principal sums. The only cash flow is the movement in the difference between the traded NDF rate and the fixing rate at expiry. The P&L is transferred on settlement in the convertible currency; generally in US dollars (multiple fixing mechanisms are available). Once a trade has been established the position can be closed or rolled at anytime or left to expire and be cash settled against the fix rate.
