MarketFactory provides a low-latency cloud that connects foreign exchange traders with 85+ exchanges to maximize their access to liquidity. As the FX market continues to fragment, connectivity is mission critical to trading. MarketFactory relieves the burden for internal IT departments by constantly adding venues and maintaining access through a single API. Further, MarketFactory is gaining momentum with their newly-launched pre-trade checks for brokers and funds looking to prevent runaway algos.
“MarketFactory’s platform provides detailed data about the currency market that helps traders to innovate. We are very excited to find the right partner in Accel-KKR who understands the market structure importance of our business and growth trajectory,” said Darren Jer, CEO and Co-Founder of MarketFactory.
