MillTechFX, the FinTech affiliate of Millennium Global Investments, has expanded into Europe following the success of its multi-bank foreign exchange (FX) marketplace in the UK and North America.
Over the past year, the FX marketplace has been accumulating client business from asset managers and corporates across the globe. Its clients have already traded tens of billions of US dollars and usage is continuing to grow.
The firm has selected Paris for its European hub and is now ready to hit the ground running across the EU after receiving regulatory approval from both French financial authorities – the Financial Markets Authority (AMF) and the Prudential and Resolution Control Authority (ACPR).
MillTechFX is looking to change this with its multi-bank FX marketplace which allows asset managers and corporates to reduce both FX costs and the operational burden associated with FX execution and rolling hedging requirements. Its independent end-to-end currency solution provides direct access to wholesale FX rates from up to 10+ counterparty banks and transparent best execution.
MillTechFX aims to deliver a fairer, more transparent and cost-effective FX execution and hedging solution, building on decades of experience from Millennium Global which manages over $19.5bn in institutional currency mandates*.
Eric Huttman, CEO of MillTechFX, said: “Over the past 12 months we have seen terrific growth in terms of clients onboarded and volumes transacted on our FX marketplace. This success indicates that asset managers and corporate treasurers are actively moving away from traditional FX processes and partnerships in favour of cost-effective, efficient and transparent multi-bank solutions. As a firm with global ambitions, we look forward to extending the benefits of our marketplace to European corporates and asset managers via our hub in Paris.”
Stephanie Aufan, Directeur Général of MillTechFX Europe, said: “Paris is one of the top tech cities in Europe, boasting a deep pool of talent as well as excellent transport links to London and the rest of Europe. From our Paris hub, we will open the door to more transparent, efficient and cost-effective access to multi-bank FX execution, levelling the playing field for asset managers and corporates across Europe.”
