Q. Can I create a unique client list to show prices or specific requests for prices?
A. Yes the LFEX systems flexibility allows users to show interest to one counterpart, all counterparties or a specific group of counterparties that you chose. The system is built to be as flexible as possible, replicating real world processes, but automating them making it much more efficient.
