Fintech provider Mobile Trading Partners has re-branded as MTP. and is making its first public appearance with the new branding on stand 56 at iFXExpo Asia in Hong Kong this week. Presenting the new brand image, Head of Design Katherine Irwin explained that this was “a reflection of the fact that the company provides technology on the back-end and middle tier, as much as the front-end of trading, and the use of the word ‘Mobile’ in the company name has therefore become a bit limiting”.
Still best known for the quality of its UX Design and its front end trading applications, MTP also provides a broad range of other trading technologies to its broker and bank clients. With a presence in major financial centres and connectivity to tier 1 banks, MTP has designed and delivered everything from advanced trading bridge technology, market data and order routing systems to the best native mobile apps and web trading front ends.
David Mercer, CEO of LMAX Exchange Group, said: “We have enjoyed a productive and positive working relationship with MTP, one of our key technology partners, for a number of years. We value their contribution in assisting LMAX Exchange Group to develop and design client facing applications across our global exchanges”.
It’s fairly well known that MTP designs and builds white label trading front ends and applications for customer acquisition and retention: high-profile clients like LMAX Exchange Group and Monex Investindo Futures are happy to share that MTP was the provider of their mobile apps and related technologies.
What is less well known is that MTP is an established service provider to its clients and has a footprint in NY4, LD4 and TY3. With hardware in many other locations, and with connectivity to major banks and liquidity providers, MTP server applications route market data and orders for its clients around the world, storing terabytes of historic data and providing charts, analysis and reporting.
During the last year, MTP delivered the third complete version for a deliverable FX system for one of it’s large clients, covering everything from a trading back end with automated hedging, admin tools and reporting, through to the front end trading tools that their institutional customers use.
In another project last year, MTP built and delivered a full featured trading bridge with connectivity to a tier 1 bank, which connects on both sides with FIX protocol for high frequency trading, and includes a comprehensive admin GUI for operations teams to use.
MTP CEO Paul Smith is “looking forward to continuing our partnerships with our bank and broker clients, to deliver better Fintech to serve the optimisation and growth of their businesses in 2019”.
Paul Smith will be on stage at iFXExpo at 11am on Thursday this week as a panel member for “FX Technology Catchup: Looking for A Silver Bullet”.
MTP is headquartered in London, with its Design Studio in Berlin, development teams in Europe and India, and a presence in Hong Kong.
