"FX trading with fully disclosed, relationship pricing continues to generate incredible recognition in the regional banking community as the most effective means to service their clients," said newly elected board member and Chairman Joe Allegra, General Partner at Edison Ventures. "TraderTools is well positioned to meet this growing demand."

"Our ongoing interactions with banks and their liquidity providers verify the need for true one-to-one relationship pricing," said Yaacov Heidingsfeld, Chief Executive Officer at TraderTools.
