About Solid

Making a
difference in the
world of FX

Solid is a fintech company, offering foreign exchange trading solutions for the institutional market. Its best-known product is Solid FX, the only true multi-bank ECN in mainland Europe. For clients who require a more tailored approach, Solid offers disclosed market making services through Solid Investing. All technology is developed and maintained in-house, to guarantee quality and reliability.

The Solid team has a deep understanding of markets, financial products and trading strategies and is able to build a bridge between these disciplines. Solid fills the gap in financial knowledge that most IT companies display and speaks the language trading firms expect, providing its clients with deep liquidity for spot FX, with transparency and complete anonymity.

Solid is backed by RBS and Standard Chartered as prime broker and central party for clearing and settlement.

02. — History

From humble
beginnings to
great ambitions

Solid was founded in 2009, by two young but experienced algorithmic traders, with extensive knowledge of both the FX market and HFT technologies. Rather than continuing to work for large, impersonal firms, they decided to start a boutique trading house focused on quality and performance. Solid would not just provide liquidity to the market, but also provide the personal and tailored services that finance professionals require.

Since then, the company has continued to grow into a tightly-knit team of experts in trading and technology. In the Solid office in Purmerend (just outside of Amsterdam), two things are paramount: firstly, helping our clients achieve business success and secondly, making sure the process is straightforward and enjoyable for all parties involved.

03. — A word from our CEO

Patrick Fleur

“In 2018, after twenty years in the FX business, I decided to take on a new challenge. And what better choice than this relatively small, but ambitious company.

“There are key challenges for this company and the industry as a whole: credit intermediation, finding liquidity and improving transparency for the clients by way of analytics and reporting.

“I believe that technological progress is the key to success in the FX world, provided it is driven by real world requirements and sound, creative ideas. With the experience and the passion of the Solid team, we can make a real difference and shape the future of FX trading.”
