List Group, a leading provider of global trading solutions, today announced it has integrated its multi-asset platform FastTrade with CME Globex, the electronic trading platform at CME Group, the world's largest and most diverse derivatives exchange.
The connection enables List's buy- and sell-side clients to access benchmark products across all major asset classes, including futures and options based on interest rates, equity indexes, foreign exchange, energy, agricultural commodities, metals, and alternative investment products. These products are centrally cleared via CME Clearing, substantially mitigating counterparty risk.
Stefano Falciani, Managing Director List UK comments: "Giving our clients direct access to CME Group's derivatives exchange adds greater product diversity for their multi-asset trading strategies on a global scale."
FastTrade currently connects to more than 30 electronic markets for equities, bonds, futures, options and repos. Its single interface integrates with external electronic markets, brokers, information sources and internal markets. Its functionality includes market making support, algorithmic trading and risk management. In addition, FastTrade provides all the components needed for the creation of external and internal electronic markets.
