The move means that clients will be able to benefit from the licensing services offered by Deutsche Börse, which already acts as a licensing partner for a number of other trading venues, including BSE India, the Irish Stock Exchange and the Bulgarian Stock Exchange.
Hartmut Graf, Head of Data Services at Deutsche Börse, commented: “Our partnership with TAIFEX gives customers access to the full range of real-time, delayed and end-of-day data products offered by both exchanges under a single license agreement. This approach meets clients’ market data needs while reducing their administrative requirements and increasing overall efficiency”.
The market data partnership agreement is expected to enhance TAIFEX’s global reach and further strengthens the alliance between the Taiwanese and German exchanges which was first formed in May 2014 when daily futures on TAIFEX’s core products, TAIEX Futures and TAIEX Options, launched for trading on Deutsche Börse’s derivatives exchange Eurex.
Chang-Ching Lin, Senior Executive Vice President, Taiwan Futures Exchange, added: “Building on our strong performance in recent years, TAIFEX has grown into one of the key derivatives exchanges of the region. This cooperation allows TAIFEX to leverage Deutsche Börse’s international channels and alliances to significantly expand our market data client base and attract foreign investors to participate in Taiwan’s market.”
