12 July 2018

London & New York – ParFX, the wholesale electronic spot FX trading platform, has been named ‘Best e-FX Trading Venue’ at an award ceremony in New York last night (11 July).

The FX Week e-FX awards recognise industry excellence in electronic foreign exchange among banks, brokers, vendors and the buy-side. The highly competitive ‘Best e-FX Trading Venue’ award recognises the platform that offer the best service to clients, high levels of liquidity, low costs, transparency and pre-and post-trade services. Innovative solutions to prevalent issues such as credit and counterparty mix were also prioritised.

ParFX was selected as the winner of this prestigious award by an expert judging panel made up of senior financial market consultants, industry analysts and FX Week editor, Eva Szalay.

Roger Rutherford, Chief Operating Officer at ParFX, comments:“We are very pleased to win this prestigious accolade. It demonstrates the widespread support for ParFX from a broad section of the industry and validates our vision and determination to promote good trading behaviour in the FX market.

“Although we are entering our fifth year of business, our vision and model set out at launch remains futureproofed in many ways. The call for fairness, equality and transparency from our founders is reflected in the FX Global Code and aligns strongly with our core values. ParFX is, without doubt, as relevant and differentiated now as it was then.”

ParFX was founded in 2013 and remains governed by a group of leading FX institutions. Last year, ParFX was one of the first trading platforms to commit to the FX Global Code and it continues to attract business all segments of the FX market.

Its top ten most active participants are now equally split between the largest bank and non-bank market participants, demonstrating how all market participants are attracted to the platform’s principles and seek to engage in good trading behaviour in a fair and transparent trading environment.
