Eurex EnLight Straight-Through-Processing: more operational efficiency, safe execution

Eurex has taken the next step in optimizing the off-book negotiation and execution workflow by implementing Straight-Through-Processing (STP) on Eurex EnLight. STP increases operational efficiency and execution certainty in the off-book market by eliminating manual entry and approval steps. The advantages at a glance:

  • Increases operational efficiency by reducing manual efforts
  • Automates the entry and the approval step 
  • No manual system approval necessary, all deals are automatically approved/executed when all preconditions are met.
  • Reducing errors and non-compliance risks

With Eurex EnLight Straight-Through-Processing you can focus on trading rather then on operational side processes.
