Rostro Group, the Prime Brokerage and Capital Markets FinTech group of companies, has today announced that professional traders and institutional investors can now access an expanded universe of exchange-traded securities via the highly-regarded Iress Order Management System.

In addition to connecting to Rostro liquidity via a dedicated API, clients can now execute and clear both OTC and on-exchange markets, using Iress’ high-performance, industry-standard trading infrastructure.

Michael Ayres, Group CEO at Rostro, commented:
“We have been building out our reputation as a multi-asset, multi-market broker, attracting significant volumes of new business as a result. This integration allows us to add full DMA capabilities to our offering, facilitating access to an even wider range of exchanges and instruments. The Iress technology enables us to significantly accelerate our growth plans, which extends our market reach by placing our execution and product offering alongside that of many of the world’s leading institutions.”

Sam Steele, Chief Investment Officer at Rostro, commented:
“Customers can gain access to over 40,000 instruments, across Equities, both swap and cash, alongside our offering of FX, Metals, Fixed Income and Commodities. We continue to scale our high touch service catering to a strong customer experience, alongside the expanding technology capabilities to enhance their trading and investment needs. Iress, as a companion to our proprietary back-office suite, means our clients are able to gain access to extensive market coverage with the ability to also provide bespoke reporting to the end user.”

Debbie Kaye, Head of Iress UK Trading, added:
“We are delighted to welcome Rostro to Iress. This onboarding offers Rostro’s clients seamless access to trade CFDs, as well as Equity Options, via Iress Order Management system. Our cloud-native FIX Hub also provides connectivity to a broad pool of institutional trading brokers across global markets”.

Connecting to Rostro liquidity over the Iress trading solution is still subject to the usual onboarding and due diligence process, although the integrated approach removes any additional technical burden.

Rostro clients will now be able to access the full range of products, instruments and suite of execution strategies via Iress Viewpoint, Iress Professional and also Bloomberg EMSX.
