IQ-EQ enters strategic alliance with Alpha Group

16 Mar 2023

We’re pleased to announce that IQ-EQ has entered into a strategic commercial alliance with Alpha Group in relation to the provision by Alpha Group of account opening and currency management solutions.

IQ-EQ is constantly reviewing the services we offer our clients to ensure we meet their ongoing and evolving needs. Following client feedback, we identified the need to support clients’ access to account opening and foreign exchange services and undertook a comprehensive scoping exercise with a number of providers. Ultimately, we selected Alpha to provide our clients with these offerings in a timely manner, coupled with their strength as a listed and regulated firm.

These services will be provided directly by Alpha to IQ-EQ clients, following an introduction made by IQ-EQ. For more information on Alpha’s products and services please click here.

  • Centralised online platform, enabling all accounts to be managed in one place

Benefits of Alpha’s currency management solution:

  • Currency management strategies that are tailored to clients’ profiles and are presented upfront and at no cost
  • A personal and proactive service, delivered by a team of specialists with expertise in the alternatives space
  • Flexible credit facilities to support clients
  • Speed, flexibility and pricing power that comes from Alpha being a global, publicly listed company
  • Clients can be onboarded for currency management solutions in a matter of days

Commenting on the new alliance, Sandeep Rai, IQ-EQ’s Head of Debt Restructuring, said:

“We are pleased to announce the launch of a strategic alliance between IQ-EQ and Alpha Group, which will provide our clients with access to account opening capabilities and Alpha’s extensive experience in the foreign exchange market.
