Currently available in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, FlexNOW already has more than 200 live users with firms such as Albar Capital, PSG Capital and Wesleyan Assurance Society recently joining as new clients. FlexNOW’s availability across other regions of the globe will be announced in the coming months.
“FlexTrade is doing a great job for us,” said Michael Perry, COO of Albar Capital. “Their collaborative approach and fast response time means that we regularly see the benefits of our feedback incorporated in a same-day platform update.”
“We chose FlexNOW based on FlexTrade’s proven track record in the trading technology space, the easy installation process, and because of the platform’s access to a wide array of market data providers. Overall, we find FlexNOW to be an easy-to-use EMS that allows us to focus on trading and best execution,” said Lucas Howarth, Fund Manager at Wesleyan.
