IPC, a global provider of secure, compliant communications and networking solutions for the financial markets community, announced on Thursday it has formed a partnership with Omniex, an institutionally focused investment and trading platform for digital assets, to allow institutional investors to now access a variety of crypto-asset exchanges and OTC providers.
According to IPC, over the last two years, there has been intense anticipation over the possibility of institutional investment flowing into crypto-assets. The company noted that this 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.”
Speaking about the collaboration, Bob Santella, CEO of IPC, stated:
“IPC is about access, community, and intelligence — exactly what institutional investors want and need from digital assets. 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.”
Omniex Co-Founder and CEO, Hu Liang, went on to add:
“Omniex partnering with IPC Systems is a win-win for institutional investors. 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.”
