TMX Atrium, provider of smarter infrastructure solutions for the financial community, today announced that Aquis Exchange, the pan-European equities exchange, has joined the TMX Atrium community.
Aquis Exchange, established in October 2012 and successfully launched on 26 Nov 2013, operates a pan-European trading venue that introduces scaled subscription pricing and diverse connectivity options for various participant types across the European trading landscape. The decision taken by Aquis Exchange to use TMX Atrium is in direct recognition of TMX Atrium’s ability to help new exchanges launch and, enable growth through access to a wide range of trading participants. TMX Atrium’s reach across Europe, North America and Russia, delivers flexible connectivity and enables easy expansion when new venues join.
The flexible connectivity model used by TMX Atrium complements Aquis Exchange’s ethos of offering choices to members in connectivity, clearing and technology. Aquis Exchange operates a subscription pricing model, whereby users are charged according to the message traffic they generate rather than a percentage of the value of each stock they trade.
Emmanuel Carjat, Managing Director, TMX Atrium said, “We are delighted that Aquis Exchange has chosen TMX Atrium to address their connectivity requirements. The addition of Aquis Exchange to the TMX Atrium community delivers yet another trading venue for our members.”
Commenting on the agreement, Alasdair Haynes, Chief Executive Officer, Aquis Exchange, said, “As a newly launched trading exchange, having TMX Atrium come on board as one of our authorised extranet suppliers is very exciting. We are very pleased to be working with TMX Atrium.”
