Discover what ION can do for you

A complete, end-to-end foreign exchange trading solution

Aphelion eFX provides everything you need for foreign exchange pricing, trading, and distribution.

With Aphelion eFX, you can connect to a range of liquidity providers and ECNs, including major global banks, your white-label single dealer platform (SDP), FXall, 360T, Bloomberg, and Currenex.

And as a complete, integrated solution, Aphelion eFX is quick and simple to implement, with no need for extensive development or integration teams. What’s more, new requirements are developed within the existing architecture, so you can avoid integration costs in the future.

Together with our secure hosting, this makes the total cost of ownership (TCO) for Aphelion eFX highly competitive.

A low-latency pricing and trading solution to grow your FX business

The Aphelion eFX end-to-end solution allows you to provide fast, accurate, on-market prices thanks to our low-latency architecture that’s free from integration points, intersystem communication, and external protocols.

Our clients pricing into 360T, FXall, and Bloomberg have seen their First-to-Respond-Ratios (FRRs) rise from between 9-14 percent to over 90 percent. Sending tighter, more accurate prices faster to end-customers, boosted their hit-ratios on multi-bank platforms.
