Interdealer broker ICAP, which operates spot FX trading platform EBS, has expanded its suite of electronically-traded currency pairs with the introduction of a sterling/Swiss franc pair.

The sterling/Swiss franc currency pair is the fourth sterling currency pair tradable on EBS. It follows sterling pairs with US dollar, yen and euro.

β€œThe addition of sterling/Swiss Franc builds upon our continued growth in other sterling currency pairs, notably sterling/US dollar,” says Darryl Hooker, new markets manager, ICAP Electronic Broking.

The sterling/Swiss franc currency pair is the latest addition to the EBS platform. ICAP has introduced a range of new currency pairs and precious metals to EBS throughout 2007 in response to trader demand.

These include the Russian rouble/US dollar, New Zealand dollar/US dollar, Australian dollar/New Zealand dollar, platinum/US dollar, palladium/US dollar and sterling/yen pairs.
