Eurex RFQ platform

Eurex RFQ platform

Addition to the Eurex Market Structure

Eurex takes another strategic step and further enhances its market structure by applying its core competences around transparency and process efficiencies to the Over the Counter market.

Eurex will further expand and enhance its existing market structure with an electronic price discovery service that allows banks and brokers to selectively contact market makers with requests for quotes in order to find a trading counterparty. Orders are then automatically transmitted to Eurex’ T7 Entry Service for exchange trade confirmation and post-trade processing.

New RFQ platform brings together Brokers and Market Makers to negotiate safely off-book and sends struck deals STP to the existing T7 Entry Service.

The fully automated solution replicates the core aspects of the voice business, while affording its users all the advantages of automatic electronic data collection and timely retrieval of all this information to meet Best Execution requirements. The increased electronification of the off book business will ultimately improve overall market liquidity and increase structural diversity.

Randolf Roth: ETD Off-Book business prepares for MiFID II

For the last two years Eurex has been heavily engaged with understanding how MiFID II will impact its business and how to address these new regulatory hurdles. Eurex was also determined to understand how the new regulatory regime would affect its members so that it might be able to use its existing expertise to solve not only its own compliance requirements, but also those of its members by providing genuinely innovative solutions. To this end, MiFID II has become a catalyst for change, presenting not only challenges around compliance but opportunities as well.
