CIO VendorGil Mandelzis, CEO
In today’s evolving forex markets, banks need flexible trading platforms and tools that provide control over electronic pricing, distribution and hedging to meet the growing demands of their client base and improve internal efficiency through automation. In December 2014, London based ICAP (Intercapital plc) combined its electronic businesses, EBS and BrokerTec, electronic platforms for forex and fixed income to arm their clients with the modern day tools of trading. This resulted as a single business division, which is now known as EBS BrokerTec. As an e-trading technology and solutions provider, the company gives its customers access to multiple execution options and diverse, valuable liquidity. “We provide exceptional value to a globally diverse community of professional traders, by leveraging EBS and BrokerTec’s technology, resources, networks and extensive scale to quickly bring new products and services to market,” exclaims Gil Mandelzis, CEO, EBS BrokerTec.

The present day trading professionals require access to the right price, at the right time, and the right amount. EBS BrokerTec’s EBS Market platform provides access to unparalleled liquidity and depth, and supports a wide range of FX trading strategies, as well as API (Application Program Interface) and manual trading for buy, and sell side trading institutions. The platform connects buyers and sellers of currencies in over 50 countries across six continents, and is a trusted source of orderly, executable and genuine liquidity across all major and BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) currencies. Built by traders for traders, EBS Market facilitates a healthy FX market ecology—delivering the technology, connectivity and highly liquid, executable opportunities that professionals require to trade with each other on a level playing field.
