PALO ALTO, SINGAPORE (02 October 2023) – Integral, a leading currency technology provider to the financial markets, has today announced that Orient Futures International (Singapore) Pte Ltd (“Orient Futures Singapore”), a global provider of futures and foreign exchange (FX) brokerage services, has deployed Integral’s end-to-end currency trading solution to empower its growing global client base, streamline trading operations and access a broader market.
The move to adopt Integral’s platform comes after Orient Futures Singapore – owned by Shanghai Orient Futures Co. Ltd, the top brokerage company in China in terms of trading volume – witnessed surging demand for its services in Singapore and the broader region globally. In 2022, Integral became the first complete cloud-based FX workflow SaaS platform deployed in the SG1 data center. Orient Futures Singapore will benefit from its end-to-end, fully integrated eFX trading solution deployed in SG1, offering clients the ability to streamline, automate and optimize every stage of their workflow, complete with SG1 implementation.
Marcus Goi, CEO of Orient Futures Singapore, said: “Our top priority is to ensure that every of our clients get the best trading experience and a bespoke solution catering to their evolving needs. This includes availing access to a wider range of comprehensive trading platforms like Integral, as well as a plethora of global exchanges. Notably, we are the first brokerage firm in Singapore to provide entry to the Brazilian B3 exchange.
Our collaboration with Integral empowers our teams to swiftly address client needs and streamline cross-border trading for both international and Chinese clients. By forming this partnership, we position ourselves at the forefront of technological innovation within the financial sector.”
Harpal Sandhu, CEO of Integral, added: “This demonstrates Integral’s commitment to supporting brokers, such as Orient Futures Singapore, to better service their fast-growing customer community with our flexible SaaS technology offering. With China and the broader region’s continuing growth in FX trading, we are delighted our technology has been chosen by such a prominent and reputable brokerage. Asia has historically been one of the most under-served regions in terms of cutting-edge financial technology, but Integral is well-placed to support firms on a local and global scale.”
