About the Valutrades Team

Sales, Operations and Customer Support (including 24 hour emergency contacts) are all based in our UK Head Office, which is located at 51 Eastcheap, London EC3M 1JP. Our clients are always welcome to come and meet the team.

Whilst fully adhering to all relevant laws and regulations, Valutrades is committed to providing an efficient onboarding process, with a set up time of 24 hours or less for all new corporate accounts after the provision of the required due diligence documentation.

The executive management team all have extensive backgrounds in FX operations and technologies, meaning that Valutrades is extremely dynamic and well versed in the requirements of institutional market players. This greatly reduces any delays or friction during the setup process and delivers to each client their own customised solution tailored to their specific needs. In addition to this the agile team offers a very personal service.

Our Institutional Service

Valutrades holds a Tier 1 Prime Brokerage relationship with our own direct liquidity providers including banks, non-bank market makers, ECNs and Hedge Funds. Holding this type of relationship enables a sophisticated infrastructure with access to excellent liquidity provider lines and client order matching. Having our own liquidity provider relationships ensure an ability to create customised liquidity pools. Unlike other margin brokers, these relationships mean that we are never reselling recycled liquidity and have no limits to the number of streams available to us.

Valutrades’ wide scope of institutional, professional and retail business means that we are able to secure specific and preferential price feeds unavailable to other firms that focus purely on institutional services.

Valutrades Technology

Our extensive range of technology solutions are located across the globe in all major datacentres including NY4, LD4, TY3 and HK3. We are also members of oneZero's ecosystem which permits us to distribute our liquidity to other brokers and firms in the same environment at reduced fees for all participants.

FX and CFDs are accessible through a GUI or FIX API with various ECNs (Currenex, Hotspot, FastMatch) and oneZero, in addition to trading on MT4 and MT5. Our product range covers 100+ instruments including FX, precious metals, oils and indices.

Valutrades can provide a MetaFX multi account manager software which handles complex MAM setups on MT4 & MT5. Our proprietary and modern client portal allows for both “plug and play” and customisable white label setups on MT4 and MT5 with the additional provisions of website, client sign ups, client account management, client funding management and payment services integrations.

Our Banking Relationships

Valutrades has wide-ranging banking solutions given our relationships with major UK banks Barclays, Lloyds and Natwest, as well as regional payment solutions and e-wallet access such as Neteller and Skrill. This ensures both ease of funding and the safety of client funds.

Background and History

Valutrades was established in 2012 with the goal of becoming a leading provider of online trading in foreign exchange (FX, Forex), Commodities and Index CFD's.
