Vela to Facilitate Electronic Access to Eurex EnLight

FRANKFURT, Germany & LONDON & NEW YORK & CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#BestExecution–Eurex, Europe’s largest derivatives exchange, and Vela, a global leader
in trading and market access technology, have teamed up to facilitate
electronic access to Eurex EnLight, the new selective request-for-quote
(RfQ) platform, via Vela’s Metro Trading Platform.


This further supports market participants seeking to trade via Eurex
EnLight as Vela’s technology solution will be a new alternative to the
existing ways of accessing the RfQ platform. With this development,
market participants can expect further operational efficiencies,
regulatory compliance with data reporting tools and best execution,
improvements to accessing liquidity, and a reduction in quote response
times on the platform.

Vela’s Metro is a high-performance trading platform supporting
automated, algorithmic, and click trading strategies. It is a complete
solution for options pricing, execution, and risk management combined
with best-of-breed API extensibility.

“We are very pleased with the new solution as it creates easy and
convenient electronic access to Eurex EnLight,” says Randolf Roth,
Member of the Eurex Executive Board. “We will continue to extend Eurex
EnLight into the equity derivatives space in the first half of 2019.”

Ollie Cadman, Global Head of Product Management and Business
Operations at Vela commented: “We are delighted to be the first
technology provider to deliver custom RfQ tools for Eurex EnLight,
enabling request reception, negotiation and trading.” He continued, “The
addition of Eurex EnLight connectivity to Metro provides clients with a
streamlined approach to access this new platform. We look forward to
continue working with Eurex to deliver innovative solutions that
simplify electronic trading.”
