BCS Financial Group, the leading financial group for the Russian markets, today announces a partnership with Orc, the global leader in derivatives trading technology, which allows Orc's clients to trade Russian securities and derivatives on the Moscow Exchange (MoEx) and on the London Stock Exchange (LSE).
This partnership allows Orc users to send order flow via BCS and therefore obtain Russian market access on competitive terms using a state of the art trading platform. The new MoEx offering specifically targets investors who have no Russian presence and thus are excluded from exchange membership, with the new service most suited to propriety trading shops and brokers.
Audrey Faveeuw, Director, Intl. Prime Brokerage Sales, BCS said: "International investors increasingly want access to the Russian markets and expect the highest standard of trading infrastructure. This partnership with Orc is ideal for our clients as it includes BCS's Russian deep market knowledge and Orc's leading trading technology and electronic execution solutions."
Martin Nilsson, Head of Product Management, Orc Group AB said: "We are excited about this new offering, which complements our already existing Russian connectivity solutions. By working with BCS, a leading Russian broker, Orc is now well positioned to deliver on a growing business demand, whilst strengthening our market access offering."
Orc and BCS are also looking to extend the partnership to cover additional Russian markets, including currencies.
