NEW YORK – March 21, 2019 – IPC, a leading global provider of secure, compliant communications and networking solutions for the financial markets community, announces that institutional investors can now access an array of crypto-asset exchanges and OTC providers through the IPC Connexus Cloud, thanks to a new partnership with Omniex, an institutionally focused investment and trading platform for digital assets. The strength of the companies’ joint end-to-end solution security protocols, combined with the expanse and composition of IPC’s institutional community of over 6,400 global financial market participants, represents a groundbreaking milestone in the digital asset trading arena.
“IPC is about access, community, and intelligence — exactly what institutional investors want and need from digital assets,” said Bob Santella, CEO of IPC Systems. “The interest, technology, and customers are robust, but until now, securely connecting all three has been a challenge for the market. Through our Connexus extranet ecosystem, the Omniex platform can provide the groundbreaking, secure, intelligent channel for cryptocurrency trading that the financial community has been clamoring for, including the vast number of major financial institutions IPC touches around the world.”
Transforming the Digital Asset Marketplace
In the last two years there has been intense anticipation over the possibility of institutional investment flowing into crypto-assets. The infrastructure for institutional-grade solutions has been rapidly developing, and security is a primary concern for institutional investors accessing any new or existing asset class. IPC already has a robust community comprised of the world’s top financial institutions, which rely on IPC’s network for orders, intelligence, and other mission-critical resources.
Moreover, this network is protected by Connexus’ robust extranet, keeping essential financial transactions secure and private, be they crypto assets or otherwise.
Omniex, meanwhile, is a complete investment and trading platform for institutional investors to seize the opportunities of the capital markets’ newest asset class, crypto. Recently named the first ever “Best Crypto Trading Platform” by Fund Technology and WSL Award for 2019, the Omniex platform provides portfolio and risk management, trade execution, investment operations, and compliance solutions for institutions.
“Omniex partnering with IPC Systems is a win-win for institutional investors,” said Omniex co-founder and CEO Hu Liang. “Omniex was purpose-built to provide comprehensive order management and execution capabilities for investors to access crypto-assets. With the established and comprehensive financial ecosystem accessible through IPC’s Connexus extranet, institutions can now easily and confidently make the leap into digital assets. As the sophistication level of investors increases, we strongly believe IPC’s Connexus network along with Omniex’s robust platform provide the right solution with the proper level of security for those institutional clients.”
