Institutional Services for SME's
Mt.Cook has invested significant resources in recent years in to both FX liquidity and technology and are able to offer an attractive wholesale execution and prime liquidity service to other retail brokers, HFT’s, hedge funds, prop shops, and emerging SME industry participants.
Contrary to popular belief, well priced liquidity is no longer abundant.
Banks prefer to keep it for themselves, leaving the common aggregators and ECNs with a smaller slice of the pie. This means that competition in margin FX has never been more intense than in recent years.
As a result, the vast majority of industry participants end up sourcing liquidity from the same pools, which results in a scenario where supply can’t keep up with the demand. It’s the participants in the middle (and their end clients) who end up suffering – but we are bridging the gap!
