The Challenge

As the industry moved away from using voice trading to hedge risk, Stone X Precious Metals needed to find a solution suitable for their precious metal client base, predominately physical gold traders, which would allow them to grow and develop the business. Their past solution offered a single price feed into their trading platform resulting in limited liquidity and lack of flexibility to respond to client pricing needs.

Requirements of new solution:

  • Robust platform, able to handle the high volumes while pricing competitively and managing risk
  • A scalable solution with the flexibility to support their growing business and still deliver the highest level of customer satisfaction
  • Greater access to liquidity for optimal client service
  • Managed costs and development
  • Rapid implementation

The Solution

Integral set up StoneX Precious Metals with its world-class integrated eFX solution that offers the most complete set of functionality on the market. As a cloud-based platform, it enabled StoneX Precious Metals to design and deliver a bespoke solution that supported their demands to serve their existing customers and add new business.

The solution includes:

  • Optimal Price Distribution — Integral provided StoneX Precious Metals with a richly featured price engine, giving them the capability to distribute prices both internally and externally
  • Industry Leading Pricing — Direct bank liquidity and unique sources
  • Risk Management — Implementation of Yield Manager, Integral’s complete risk management system which automates, manages and monitors the risk and yield of the most complex trading businesses
  • Cloud Hosted Solution — Zero data and hardware costs and ultra-low latency connection to a variety of providers and services
  • Post Trade STP
