BidFX 日本の外国為替市場に進出

日本のリアルマネーの世界に最初の外国為替電子取引プラットフォームが登場してから20年余りが経ちました。それ以来、テクノロジーは元より、データ、セキュリティ、コンプライアンスなど、外国為替取引に関わるさまざまな要素が劇的に進化してきました。同時に、マネーマネジャーの取引ライフサイクル全体を管理するオーダー・マネジメント・システム(OMS)も、過去20年間一部のレガシー取引プラットフォームがほとんど変化していないのに対し、継続的に進歩しています。これはリアルマネーにとって、STPソリューションと統合された「最良執行」の形態が、ほぼ完成形を迎えていることを意味するのでしょうか。 BidFXは、一部の最先端の機関投資家がさらなるアルファを獲得するために、従来ヘッジファンドが利用してきたプラットフォームを活用して新しいレベルのゲームに挑戦していることを知っています。これは、リアルマネーがヘッジファンド的な取引手法を目指しているということではありません。旧来のプラットフォームまたはテクノロジーでは実現不可能であった新しいアルファの生成を、ヘッジファンド・モデルを利用し追求する試みです。 BidFXは、長年に渡り旧型プラットフォームを使用してきた機関投資家やヘッジファンドの皆様に、新たなイノベーションとさらに高度なサービス・レベルをご提供するという強いコミットメントを掲げています。そして弊社は、次世代レベルのワークフローの効率化、リスクの最小化、最良執行の機会を市場参加者にご提供することが、お客様の成功とマーケットへの貢献に通じる唯一の道であると確信しています。     This article was written by Tak Koyama, Sales Director, BidFX. tak.koyama@bidfx.com
