LoopFX dark pool
Big Trades, Small ImpactThe dark pool for Foreign Exchange
What Is LoopFX?LoopFX is a dark pool pioneering a new protocol in Foreign Exchange called PeerToBank matching. LoopFX allows Asset Managers and Banks to match large offsetting trades with zero information leakage at a mid-market rate. Asset Managers access LoopFX within their existing workflows through collaborations with market leading platforms like FX Connect. Banks are paid for liquidity matched in LoopFX, completely reversing the paradigm.

  • 1. RFS, 2. Send to Algo.. And now, 3. Send to LoopFX.
  • LoopFX facilitates PeerToBank matches and PeerToPeer matches.
  • By keeping Banks central to matching in LoopFX, the FX ecosystem is respected and improved for all.
