NYSE Liffe, the Europe-based derivatives business of NYSE Euronext (NYX), has unveiled two new options that will enable customers in Frankfurt to access the NYSE Liffe derivatives market faster and more cost-effectively than ever before.
Until now, customers in the German financial capital have had to connect to NYSE Liffe by using the existing telecommunications infrastructure to reach the Exchange’s Amsterdam or Paris Access Centres. From this quarter customers in Frankfurt will be able to order connections to one of two NYSE Euronext Secure Financial Transaction Infrastructure (SFTI) centres in the city. The SFTI network offers the lowest latency Exchange service from Frankfurt to NYSE Euronext’s markets and the two new options will offer customers much faster access prioritising, respectively, resilience or cost, depending on which option they choose.
Garry Jones, executive director of NYSE Liffe, said: “As automated, algorithmic trading grows, speed is paramount. In today’s tough market conditions, cost is everything. These new routes will meet the needs of our customers in Frankfurt by offering them quicker, cheaper access to the NYSE Liffe market.”
