Leading London-based Prime of Prime Broker, Sucden Financial has announced the results of its global research into key requirements from brokers, banks, fund managers and professional traders when selecting a Liquidity Provider. The survey responses highlight the main changes in priorities pre and post SNB events. They reveal that over one third (38%) of brokers, banks and fund managers who responded to the survey have or are considering switching Liquidity Providers post SNB and identify a particular focus on depth of liquidity, tight spreads, low counterparty risk and high service levels. Peter Brooks, Co-Head of e-FX at Sucden Financial explains, “We are able to meet all the key requirements as identified by our research. One of the largest shifts in priorities is a focus on counterparty risk, which was a very low consideration prior to SNB events. Sucden Financial is able to attract a lot of business as it is highly diversified organisation, with a net worth over $100 million. It’s a huge advantage in the current climate that we have a strong track record from operating in the financial markets for over 40 years.” Read more about the research findings on page 82.
