Quantave

Silver

Quantave - The institutional gateway to digital asset liquidity Quantave is opening up the digital currency market to professional market participants by providing a robust and secure trade-lifecycle infrastructure. For the first time investors such as family offices, fund managers, FX/CFD providers, brokers and market makers (including Authorised Participants) will have access to multiple sources of digital asset liquidity via a single gateway - delivering a deeper pool of liquidity whilst enhancing price discovery. This single point of access is underpinned by fully integrated custody, settlement and post-trade functions. Professional investors need to be reassured that digital currencies (such as Bitcoin, Ether and Litecoin) are an appropriate investment and that their assets can be securely safeguarded. Uniquely, we have partnered with dedicated, specialist intermediaries to make a clear distinction between the "execution" and "custody" functions - unlike existing digital currency exchanges - to remove any potential conflicts of interest. Our solution greatly reduces the complexity currently faced by new entrants to the digital currency markets whilst delivering greater capital efficiency and mitigating counterparty risk. This single gateway facilitates straightforward access by providing Trading UI or direct FIX options, managing connectivity and facilitating post-trade reconciliation and settlement.
