Cürex Group Announces Agreement with Siemens Group to License Cipher Data Analytics Platform

NEW YORK--()--The Cürex Group, a New York City-based institutional foreign exchange execution services and data analytics company, today announces an agreement with Siemens to provide it with advanced pre- and post-trade data analytics through Cürex’s CipherSM platform.

Siemens and Cürex have maintained an FX trading relationship since Cürex introduced its unique, no-last look ECN and executable FTSE Russell/Cürex FX Benchmarks. As a leader and promoter of best execution practices, Siemens has supported Cürex’s efforts to bring greater transparency and fairness to the buy side community. Siemens’ decision to employ Cipher will help them better manage their FX trading decisions, lower their trading costs and improve their trading outcomes. Siemens has also agreed to provide input to Cürex in the future as it introduces additional tools and enhancements to the Cipher platform.

Cürex introduced Cipher in mid-2021. Cipher comprises comprehensive pre- and post-trade analytics, as well as real-time analytics that are available to customers who execute their algo trades in Cürex’s liquidity pool. Cipher’s pre-trade suite includes a trade cost estimator, risk transfer price comparison and streaming volatility analysis, among other features. Cipher’s post-trade TCA allows customers to measure relative bank algo performance based on Cürex’s independently derived benchmarks, risk transfer comparison, slippage and performance against the market’s existing conditions at the inception of the client’s trading decision. Cipher’s ability to link post-trade outcomes with pre-trade conditions is fundamental to improving FX trading performance.

Commenting for Cürex, James Singleton, Chairman and CEO, said, “Siemens is a sophisticated and valued client. They have supported our efforts to improve the buy side’s trading outcomes in a marketplace where there is minimal support to achieve such outcomes. Their decision to use Cipher underscores the value of Cipher’s streaming analytical content. Our data drives better insights compared to the alternatives available through other providers. We are grateful for Siemens’ endorsement of our platform and our best execution efforts.”

Peter Rathgeb, Group Treasurer for Siemens, added, “In today’s fast changing environment, digitalization and interdisciplinary collaboration are key drivers of innovation and business success. Our longstanding partnership with Cürex led to the development of a unique and independent trading analytics platform that will help us monitor and achieve best execution protocols and further transparency in our FX trading activities. We are pleased to continue to build our relationship with Cürex and support their efforts to improve trading outcomes for the buy side.”
