, the UK FCA-authorized prime brokerage solutions provider, has launched a new joint clearing venture in partnership with Abu Dhabi investment firm Noor Capital. Called ‘Noor Clearing,’ the new unit is now open for business and provides B2B solutions for a broad institutional client base in the region.
The new clearing brand offers interbank liquidity pools via a proprietary technology to institutional clients, ranging from retail FX brokers, to banks and fund managers. It secures access to a choice of platforms and a range of relevant solutions including liquidity, risk management and reporting tools. This liquidity can be integrated using APIs into multiple trading venues and third party platforms.
The new collaboration is expected to be an important growth driver for TradeTech Group’s liquidity provider, which aims to complement its existing product suite and attract new players to the market. It also leverages Noor Capital’s license, local bank relationships, and regional expertise to further promote CFH’s multi-asset institutional liquidity and technology.
This expansion of CFH Clearing’s services and distribution network makes its liquidity also available to a broader set of market participants in the Emirates and the wider Gulf region. Enabling clients’ access to such a broad list of B2B derivative products under a unified technology and clearing solution is a highly progressive model for the region, both in terms of software and brokerage.
