Actinver chose FIX Flyer for the core FIX components since the solution because of its ease of use, allowing them to bring new electronic services to market quickly. In addition, Actinver needed to ensure that the solution would give all of their client’s comfort that they can handle a dynamic and quickly emerging marketplace in Mexico. Because of Flyer’s unmatched proficiency and expertise as an overall FIX solution, Actinver realized early in their evaluation process that Flyer extended their support and tools beyond the other conventional solutions. FIX Flyer works in the most demanding trading environments in the world, and that experience makes the product valuable to Actinver.
