Licensed in 1997 (Pre FSR) as a securities dealer and then receiving its Australian Financial Services License in 2008, Alpha Trade was re-purposed in 2021 in order to bring aggregated institutional liquidity sourced from all major liquidity providers and execution venues to match the demands of any type of trader type. We solely provide liquidity across almost every asset class for qualified Wholesale / Institutional Clients with a strong focus on Regulated Asset Management firms and Hedge Funds.
The principals’ behind this business originate from a blend of institutional, professional and retail firms’ and their clients ranged top tier banks, hedge funds, sovereign wealth funds to professional asset managers and algorithmic trading system developers.
We concentrate on providing FX, metals and CFD focussed products to ensure that we can deliver the highest quality of execution services in products that we have a proven track record in delivering on over many decades.
As a firm we operate an agency execution only model and do not hold opposing positions to clients to ensure that our interests do not oppose that of our clients so as not to create a conflict of interest.
All client orders are routed through our aggregation engine where all our liquidity sources compete for your business on an equal basis. We have no preferential arrangements with any of our liquidity providers for order matching unless we agree a bespoke solution with you, our client, in advance as certain clients are better suited to having bespoke pools created for them.
Our infrastructure is best in breed and is co-located with our liquidity sources to minimise latency.
