Global growth at CFH Clearing: With clear benefits for banks & brokers worldwide

With recent record sales, new team members and new office locations, CFH Clearing continues to experience significant growth. According to Global Head of Sales, Paul Jackson, “Business is strong because we have a compelling offering – in terms of technology and liquidity – for clients across the globe. Organisations who have found it difficult to secure a Prime Broker are seeing the benefits of working with us to access institutional liquidity and this has contributed to major growth for CFH Clearing and CFH Systems over the last year.”

Here’s a quick round-up from some members of the CFH team:

Paul Groves, CFH Clearing, Sales Director (Europe)

“The market in Europe is very mature and CFH Clearing, as an FCA regulated Prime of Prime Broker with a strong B2B offering, is highly respected in this region.  ClearConnect – which provides institutional clients with access to a diverse liquidity pool - has proved to be very popular. Our modular ClearVision technology also goes from strength to strength – particularly our risk management tool, ClearRisk, which offers a real-time overview of all client accounts. Perhaps the biggest change for us in recent months has been becoming more open-minded about putting CFH liquidity into other platforms and ECNs, such as Hotspot and Currenex. This was driven by client demand and we are open to adding our liquidity to other platforms moving forward.”

Marcus Willaume, CFH Systems, Regional Director (Switzerland)

“I am responsible for CFH’s Swiss office, where we have a growing client base of professional clients such as fund managers and asset managers. There are a lot of sophisticated proprietary organisations here in Switzerland who value the flexibility we offer in terms of choice of technology and liquidity. Our clients benefit from our local knowledge combined with the investment and developments of the CFH organization – such as our recent partnership with Olfa Trade, another Swiss business, which extends our portfolio of high quality white label solutions.”

“MENA, with Dubai and Abu Dhabi as the main hubs, is a complex territory for brokers to operate in, particularly in terms of regulation but it’s a region in which we are very experienced. We have helped many start-up and mid-sized brokers as well as ultra-high net worth individuals over the last six years. Relationship building is critical to success in the region and we spend a lot of time in the Middle East forging strong relationships with our clients and local business partners. It helps that we speak the local languages and understand the local business etiquette and protocols. CFH Clearing is highly respected in 
the region as a pioneer of STP interbank liquidity for retail FX brokers.”

“We can help brokers in China with their exact requirements.  They are generally looking for a reputable liquidity provider with low latency, tight spreads and a high volume of liquidity as well as a choice of White Label solutions. With our matching engine in TY3 and a Point of Presence in Hong Kong, we can reduce latency and enhance execution. Our team of Chinese speakers based in CFH Systems’ offices in Hong Kong and Shanghai further strengthens our offering as we are able to provide excellent 24 hour support.”
