NEW YORK, July 15, 2011 -

Saxo Bank, the specialist in online trading and investment, has
won the “Best Liquidity Distribution Service” award at the annual
eFX Awards
2011 hosted by FX Week in
New York on Thursday evening.

At the core of Saxo Bank’s offering is its White Label solution
for banks that require a market leading on-line trading platform
for their clients. The key benefits of the solution are:

  • It facilitates ownership and control of banks’ relationships
    with their clients whilst maintaining full  client anonymity
    from Saxo Bank.
  • Access to a fully branded and customised trading solution.
  • A facility for banks to distribute their own FX liquidity to
    their clients via the white-label platform.
  • A multi-asset offering with more than 20,000 financial
    products, including FX, Stocks, CFDs and commodities.
  • Flexibility and control allows banks to distribute liquidity
    from the asset classes with tailored commission pricing to their
    own clients, based on their own local and regional

For institutional clients, such as hedge funds and retail
aggregators with sophisticated high trading volumes, Saxo Bank’s
trading API compliments their needs by making its multi-asset
product range available in the client’s own systems via a low
latency VPN, standard FIX protocol API. The trading API extends
Saxo Bank’s distribution services and makes available its range of
FX crosses and order routing for CFDs, Stocks and Futures in the
client’s proprietary systems.

The founders and co-CEOs of Saxo Bank, Kim Fournais and Lars
Seier Christens
said in a joint statement:

“Saxo Bank acts as a facilitator linking liquidity from
Tier-1-banks and access to over 20 exchanges across the globe to
our institutional and retail clients via our integrated platforms.
The award acknowledges this business model. It makes us very proud
and we are honored to accept the award.”

Saxo Bank was also nominated for the “Best Retail Platform”
award. The award was won by Citi. The CitiFX Pro platform is
powered by Saxo Bank.

This year the awards were judged by industry experts, Joel
