Thousands of FX traders use Quasar eFX from Aphelion every day. Quasar eFX has replaced many of the eFX systems on the market but it has never been replaced by another platform.
Our FX software offers access to a wide range of liquidity providers. We provide all the required eFX functionality a bank or institution needs to effectively meet modern cash investment requirements in order to grow business within FX trading.
Aphelion collaborates with all the major liquidity providers, including banks such as;
Currently we have over 30 liquidity provider adapters, as well as adapters to your selected distribution channels, SDP (white label), FXall, 360T, Bloomberg and Currenex among others.
Aphelion has built an FX technology software structure, Quasar eFX, that supports the trading side of your FX business as well as the distribution side. Everything in Quasar, every piece of functionality, is built in the same tier-level in the architecture and each component is programmed with the purpose of being part of the whole solution.
Being true end-to-end, performance is not hampered by the fact that different systems are involved in getting a price out. Latency decreases when there is no need for external protocols and intersystem communication. There is simply no integration points that can lose information in Quasar. This gives our clients the millisecond advantage they need to gain higher hit-ratios and more volumes.
The results for our Quasar eFX-customers have been immediate:
We have customers pricing into 360T, FXall and Bloomberg that have gone from First-to-Respond-Ratios (FRR) between 9-14 percent to reach over 90 percent when switching to Quasar eFX. The combination of getting a more accurate and tighter price, faster out to the end-customers, has had a major effect on these clients hit-ratios on the multibank platforms.
Besides performance, having an end-to-end suite also give our clients a stable and contained environment as well as high flexibility when it comes to adapting new requirements and new functionality to the system.
Another benefit of having an end-to-end suite is the resources required when the platform is being deployed differs very much from most of our competitors.
Many of them have teams of developers and consultants involved with building and integrating different parts to form the structure. As Quasar has everything in one solution, a minimum set of resources is required on both the client side as well as on the Aphelion side when the platform is being implemented, as it is a true plug-in-solution. In addition, there will be no future integration costs since new requirements will be developed within the existing architecture. This makes the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for Quasar very competitive.
Aphelion hosts the infrastructure in Equinix NY4, LD4/5 and TY3 to which we connect the required liquidity providers and selected distribution channels, branded SDP, FXall, 360T, Bloomberg, Currenex, etc.
