WHAT WE DO
Navigating the FX option market is fraught with obstacles and risk. The over the counter nature of the market presents major barriers to true liquidity access and frequent challenges to ensuring best pricing. Expert guidance is required for efficient expression of trade ideas.
Spectra FX Solutions offers a unique relationship with its institutional clients; as a non-proprietary intermediation firm we provide an environment in which to deliver market expertise via the strategizing and structuring of FX option trades combined with an unrivalled access to market wide liquidity. The result sets new standards in best execution, previously unavailable in the FX option market.
A UNIQUE SPECTRUM OF LIQUIDITY AND PRODUCTS
At Spectra FX Solutions we aim to provide our clients with complete, anonymous, market wide access to FX option pricing through our comprehensive bank liquidity network, with trades clearing through a single prime broker counterparty.
We have secured strong, deep relationships with the banking community, continually sourcing their respective product strengths in the FX option market, while also being mindful of their positioning bias on a real time basis.
Our clients receive pricing in vanilla options in G-10 currencies that is second to none. What’s more, the value of our service in less price-transparent products such as emerging market options, exotic options, and longer dated options can be even more significant.
A PROVIDER OF SOLUTIONS
With our extensive experience in the FX markets and ability to be on the pulse of FX related themes, flows and information at all times, Spectra FX Solutions is an invaluable resource to our clients, beyond just pricing.
Whether it’s devising a hedging strategy for a large equity based asset manager, advising a family office on the most risk efficient expression of a directional trade, or providing a full liquidity gateway for a small hedge fund, we look to partner with our clients in any way that we can to help them navigate the FX option markets.
We do not take any proprietary risk; our unrelenting focus is helping clients maximize performance.
