London-based EasyScreen has signed European independent trading group Curvalue to its ASP service, EasyXchange.
Curvalue is a pan-European financial services group with offices in The Netherlands, France, Switzerland, Gibraltar, Greece and the UK.
EasyScreen will provide Curvalue with exchange connectivity and trading services from its data centre in London. The trading group will initally use the system to connect to Euronext Paris, Euronext Brussels, Liffe and Eurex exchanges.
Under the agreement, Curvalue will be able offer its clients a white-label version of EasyScreen's front-end dealing screen, Easy Active Trade (Eat). The platform includes the vendor's risk Management software, EasyShield.
Richard den Drijver, CEO of Curvalue, says EasyXchange will benefit retail traders who are not exchange members: "These traders may be transacting their business through small trading arcades or banks but want to share the same cost and access benefits as the big players, so that they can compete with them on equal terms."
