Bank of New York: Best site for FX trading for fund managers

Runners-up: Citigroup, JPMorgan

This category was separated from cash execution last year because there was a clear distinction between forex trading platforms that offered spot, forwards and swaps execution from those that also offered portfolio-management services such as order upload functionality, netting and pre- and post-trade allocations.

This year that distinction is dwindling as more execution platforms add orders and allocations.

The strength of this year's winner, Bank of New York, again lies largely in the post-trade services that it offers. "Based on the experience of all the platforms we are using, we feel BoNY is ahead of the pack," says one custodial client of the bank, who also uses rival platforms. "We like the support BoNY gives us, the ease of operation on iFX Manager, and the platform's Swift capabilities."

iFX Manager is the only system demonstrated to Euromoney this year that enables clients to work a global order book with ease.

Once orders are uploaded into the system, either manually or automatically, any authorized trader can take one or more and execute them without confusion.

Alternatively, auto execution is possible as Bank of New York offers fixing too, though some clients are unable to take advantage of it because of the lack of development on the other systems that they use.
