Deutsche Börse delves further into institutional FX
Earlier this week, Deutsche Börse AG reported a slight increase in net revenues year-on-year for the first quarter of 2019, thanks to solid performance by its subsidiaries 360T and EEX, among others.
Specifically, 360T, the foreign exchange (forex) subsidiary of Deutsche Börse, managed to achieve net revenue of €21.4 million during the first quarter of 2019 up 21.6 percent year-on-year.
Previous reports suggested that Germany’s paramount exchange is mulling the acquisition of Thomson Reuters’ FXall, an electronic FX trading platform to corporations and asset managers
If confirmed, the move would mark Deutsche Borse’s continued expansion motive in the foreign exchange space and institutional level trading businesses. It comes after nearly three years of Deutsche Borse’s foray into FX ECN of its own with the acquisition of 360T, which turned to be the center of the exchange’s global FX business.
Also last year, the German stock exchange operator acquired GAIN Capital’s trading venue GTX ECN for $100 million as it looks to expand its FX business in the US.
