Spotex clients access Cobalt’s dynamic credit solution

RELATED TOPICS​

Cobalt, a multi-award-winning provider of FX and Digital Asset risk and settlement infrastructure, has partnered with Spotex, a developer of FX technology solutions, to provide clients with dynamic credit management tools. 

Through the partnership Cobalt’s Risk Hub will be available for clients of Spotex’s FX electronic communication network (ECN).   
  
Cobalt’s Risk Hub provides centralised management of real-time updates of exposure and credit risk. Spotex is the latest partner to offer its clients access to Cobalt’s full suite of automated real-time credit limits and controls, including designation notices, and credit optimisation.  
  
By providing a solution to the overallocation of credit, the Cobalt and Spotex partnership directly addresses ongoing pressure points in the FX markets. Both companies alleviate the risks of legacy technology while protecting clients’ exposure by providing automated monitoring solutions  
  
Darren Coote, CEO of Cobalt, says: “As today’s FX markets continue to evolve, new technology is needed to solve old problems with credit management front and centre. Our work with Spotex in consolidating our dynamic credit offering is doing precisely that. Through the partnership, we are able to deliver our suite of real-time automated credit management and monitoring tools to more market participants at a time where transformation is gathering speed.”  
  
John Miesner, Spotex CEO, says: “Credit runs at the very heart of our markets – but often, the details of managing credit opens up too much risk and unwanted exposure for banks and intermediaries. With Cobalt, we are able to provide our FX clients with a complete real-time picture of their risk. Through our low-latency technology, we are providing banks and financial institutions with a very tangible solution for the age-old credit problems in FX. Additionally, as we broaden our product offerings, specifically in NDF’s & FX Forwards, along side the Cobalt infrastructure, partnering with Cobalt was a logical decision. Furthermore, as Digital Asset opportunities continue to grow, we feel Cobalt’s existing involvement in the digital space will be beneficial to Spotex as we enter this arena.”
