Supporting brokerage's rapid volume growth and expansion into new services
The TFB client is an established mid-size brokerage operating with high volumes in multiple markets around the world. The broker’s infrastructure includes over ten active servers.
Issues and pains affecting the business
The client required a money management product and a top-tier liquidity bridge solution to support their growing volume and tap into new markets by providing additional services to inexperienced traders.
The previous bridging solution was not scalable enough to guarantee the best performance under rapid growth, leading to several performance slowdowns.
The client also had a budget constraint that limited them in the money management solution options.
Additionally, the client was looking for a technology provider to help them set up and navigate MetaTrader 5, as they had no previous experience with MT5 servers.
Details of the project
The overall project took three weeks in total, from the initial discussion to the final rollout.
Several representatives from the client side were involved to ensure everyone’s interests and goals were taken into consideration. Tools for Brokers was represented by a technical specialist, a sales representative, and a customer success manager.
As a part of the project, the Copy Trading Plugin MT5 was customised and the netting functionality was added to meet the unique client’s requirements.
During the testing phase and the subsequent solution’s rollout, the TFB technical team was involved in helping the client:
The TFB team consulted with the client on MetaTrader 5 best practices and provided access to the MT5 knowledge base.
Solution and specific features offered
After careful analysis and several discussions with the client, the Tools for Brokers team suggested the following solutions:
The Trade Processor liquidity bridge for bridging and risk management capabilities, such as volume consolidation and backup LP that would ensure stable, fast, and secure performance even with rapid environment growth.
The Copy Trading Plugin MT5 for money management. The Copy Trading Plugin MT5 provides group copying options, allowing traders to easily copy trades and differentiate their trading strategies with minimal effort.
Combining the Trade Processor liquidity bridge with the Copy Trading Plugin MT5 achieved all the client’s goals:
- Stability and security of the trading process.
- Safe scaling with no adverse effect on the performance.
- Money management functionality to diversify the portfolio and attract new traders.
The two TFB products allowed the brokerage to limit risk by automatically taking counter positions and helping them to introduce more strategies.
One of the key factors for the client was to have solutions from the same provider that are 100% compatible and can be managed and maintained through a single partner.
The following factors contributed to deciding to go ahead with TFB:
- The solution is easy to start and use.
- Availability and ease of customisation.
- A vast pool of LP partners connected to Trade Processor.
- Cooperation and responsiveness on TFB’s end.
