Quants & HFT

One of Edge’s main differentiators?

The capacity to Develop AND Manage AND Execute, within a fully regulated environment, highly sophisticated Quants & High Frequency Trading strategies supporting up to 50,000 orders per second.

Edge Quants

We strongly believe that the future of our Industry lays in the development of Added Value services to Margin Trading, which is why we are investing extensively into Quants, HFT, and Asset Management activities.

We attracted some of the most experienced developers from the Institutional Banking space to structure and run Edge’s Quants and Asset Management business divisions. We aim at addressing the high-end Retail market as well as Small and Midsized institutions (Banking and Asset Management) with such solutions.

Edge’s Clients and Partners can now benefit from a direct access to proprietary Quants and Algos to manage their own funds, or their clients' funds.

Our Quants and HFT strategies bypass the MT4 platform’s limitations and instead connect to the markets via Binary Protocol (i.e. far superior to FIX API). They are powered by Edge’s proprietary “VFTS Core” server and frontend GUI, a truly cutting-edge IT infrastructure capable of executing up to 50.000 orders per second.

Our Partners do leverage from Edge’s infrastructure to launch a number of new products and services such as QUANTS, HFT and ASSET MANAGEMENT via our WL setup, alternatively by introducing these products via Introducing Broker Agreements, hence address a vast array of customers, expand revenue channels and further position their businesses as global industry players.

Edge is authorised and regulated to conduct Portfolio Management activities to all EU Member States.
