Vela provided the client with a truly unique, lightweight direct market access offering without forcing or mandating any additional, non-critical components. The DMA platform enabled the client to continue benefiting from their broker’s risk management while the brokers retained full and independent control of the client’s trading risk.
The Head of Execution Services at the client’s broker, commented that switching to Vela’s DMA platform was “the best day of his working life,” removing a significant burden from his shoulders.
