Nyse TransactTools, a subsidiary of NYSE Euronext, today announced that Liffe, the international derivatives business of NYSE Euronext, is now available via the Secure Financial Transaction Infrastructure (SFTI).
Liffe's trading system LIFFE CONNECT features an open, high performance system architecture and a flexible Application Program Interface (API) that allows users to build or purchase trading or view only applications to suit their specific business needs.
"The ability to route order flow directly onto LIFFE CONNECT via SFTI, is a key milestone in the technology integration of NYSE Euronext, and will allow Liffe to attract order flow from the broad client base of NYSE TransactTools." said Fraser Cowie, Executive Director, Transatlantic Business Development, NYSE Euronext.
SFTI is the NYSE TransactTools communications network dedicated to the financial industry. It is designed to be resistant to man-made and natural disasters, while speeding recovery after a crisis. This highly reliable, resilient, and low latency network offers connectivity to NYSE as well as other exchanges, market centers and content service providers and also connects to over 800 market participants, including all of the National Market System markets in the United States. SFTI is FIX-enabled, providing open, standards-based access for data and trading. The OMS neutral FIX router enables customers to get to any destination through a single FIX connection.
"The addition of Liffe as a destination on the SFTI network is very important as it represents our expansion into Europe, said Sam Johnson, NYSE Euronext Executive Vice President and CEO of NYSE TransactTools. Now all SFTI clients have expanded reach to Liffe's markets in Europe through a single connection.
