Omniex Holdings, a Silicon Valley company which developed a trading platform for institutional investors in crypto-assets has announced a number of its initial clients including Circle, Jump Trading, OSL, Galaxy IP, BKCM, Crescent Crypto, DV Chain, Wyre, and others.
The Omniex Edge platform provides an end-to-end solution for portfolio and risk management, trade execution, investment operations, and compliance to support the needs of buy-side and sell-side institutions. It enables direct market access and connectivity to some of the largest liquidity venues for crypto-assets, including leading crypto exchanges across the world and multiple OTC desks.
Beyond a full-featured portfolio management system (PMS) and order management system (OMS), Omniex provides a high-performance execution management system (EMS) with an intuitive GUI plus a high-performance FIX API.
Additionally, it provides algorithmic execution and smart order routing services, which are grounded in the team’s decades of experience in high-frequency trading and execution optimization.

We’re grateful for the industry’s support and eager to work with our first wave of clients to pioneer crypto as a new asset class in institutional finance.”[/perfectpullquote]
In August, Omniex appointed former SEC Chairman Arthur Levitt and former Chair of the FDIC Sheila Bair to its Board of Advisors, Maartje Bus, former Head of Capital Markets at Thomson Reuters as Director of Strategic Partnerships, and Tom Eidt, former head of KCG’s regulatory affairs as General Counsel & Chief Compliance Officer.
