HSBC Announces NDFlex, a New Forex NFD Algo Suite
HSBC, the British multinational investment bank, announced the creation of NDFlex. This new algorithm suite platform supports five Asian currencies, including the Korean won, Philippine peso, Taiwan dollars, Indian rupees, and Indonesian rupiah, all against the US dollar.
According to a press release, the algo suite will be initially available in Bloomberg and BidFX. The bank is planning to extend the number of currencies, and it will add it to more platforms as soon as the fourth quarter of 2020.
According to rumors, the service's first addition will be Latam NDF markets with Brazil as a starting point.
HSBC's new global head of FX alternative execution service, Vivek Sarohia, said that the bank has been working on the NDF algos service for about six months with clients.
We have seen, like our peers, a significant uptick in demand for algos and this gave us the validation to expand our offering into emerging markets, which is a strong suit of HSBC.
