July 23 (Reuters) - Singapore Exchange Ltd (SGX) said on Friday it would buy currency trading platform MaxxTrader for $125 million as the bourse operator expands its currency offerings. 

With the acquisition, SGX hopes to create a currency platform that will be Asia's largest venue for international foreign exchange (FX) over-the-counter (OTC) and futures participants, the company said in a statement. 

Founded in 2008, MaxxTrader has more than 100 banks, broker-dealers and hedge funds connected to its platform, with an average daily volume of $17 billion as of June-end, SGX said. 

"Our next step is to offer clients a full suite of FX futures and OTC solutions, by building a primary FX OTC marketplace anchored in Singapore," said Loh Boon Chye, SGX's chief executive officer. 

 SGX will buy the white label trading platform from FlexTrade Systems in a deal expected to be completed by December.
