  • Are there barriers that keep you from trading in multi-bank platforms today, and how well do you believe APAC buy side firms understand the value prop of the likes of FxAll/Thompson Reuters, Bloomberg FXGO, 360T, Integral, and LMAX Exchange?
  • From your experience, what due diligence questions do you ask to ensure that one or several of your "must-have" trading requirements will be met by a prospective new FX liquidity provider?
