This will be followed by the fourth-quarter introduction of the company’s prime brokerage solution that will allow real-time messaging through Trading Center and automatic notification of prime brokerage deals between banks through FXall’s Settlement Center.
FXall will charge a small flat fee per message and confirmation, a charge paid by the bank selling the currency to FXall clients, of which 57% are corporates.
