Multi-asset trading infrastructure provider, Object Trading, today announced the expansion of its Direct Market Access (DMA) Service Platform, after its fully managed services were made available at TMX Group’s co-location centre which provides access to the Montreal Exchange (MX), as per a company announcement.
The managed service is available to both buy-side and sell-side market participants and was described as being launched in response to the retrenchment that sell-side participants are experiencing as exchange volumes increase, and thus offering a means for them to access or create liquidity where such opportunities arise.
Dan Hubscher, Object Trading’s Director of Strategy, added regarding the news: “Our conformed broker community has its execution, clearing, and risk management infrastructure in place, and its related client onboarding processes active, on the Object Trading platform.”
