LMAX Exchange - Optimised, exchange quality FX execution
The unique LMAX Exchange business model addresses the fundamental changes happening within the FX market, and solves two key industry problems:
- Lack of transparency of the true cost of OTC traded FX
- Lack of precise, consistent & reliable FX trade execution
LMAX Exchange delivers conflict free, neutral execution and transparent cost of trade to both, the buy-side and sell-side. LMAX Exchange is not a market-maker, and unlike some ECNs, the open order book is driven by streaming, non ‘last look’ limit orders supplied by top tier banks and institutional liquidity providers.
