Samsung Futures, a leading Korean institutional futures commission merchant (FCM), and Trading Technologies International, Inc. (TT), a global provider of high-performance professional trading software, infrastructure and data solutions, today announced that Samsung has signed an agreement to offer connectivity to the Korea Exchange (KRX) via the TT platform. In doing so, Samsung will be the first FCM to connect to KRX on the TT platform, extending TT’s connectivity into Korea for the first time.
With this agreement, Samsung’s internal execution desks and global customer base will be able to trade KRX using TT’s enhanced suite of cutting-edge functionality, including ADL®, Autospreader® and advanced options functionality. TT users will also have the opportunity to contract directly with Samsung to access KRX on the TT platform.
“This is an exciting opportunity for us,” said Mike Ahn, Managing Director of Samsung Futures’ International Sales Division. “The TT platform will benefit our current clients with more customized services, as well as open the door to new potential markets for us to reinforce Samsung’s position as the number one derivatives brokerage firm in Korea.”
“We’re pleased to be partnering with Samsung to bring the TT platform to Korea,” said Michael Peters, TT’s Regional Executive Sales Director, APAC. “This relationship not only highlights our commitment to the APAC region, it provides an invaluable endorsement of our brand and reinforces TT’s reputation as the platform of choice amongst the top-tier global FCMs.”
