Commenting on its latest partnership, Donal Byrne, CEO of Corvil, said: “Exane BNP Paribas is a respected global investment company with over two decades in specialised financial services. Our continued work with organisations across the financial markets has supported Corvil’s evolution to become a required component of the business technology strategy and information ecosystem for any company that participates in electronic trading.”

Corvil’s ability to see, decode and analyse end-to-end trading transactions, market data and algorithmic activity as they are happening and at the level of granularity demanded by electronic trading regulators has led to its use as a critical component of financial institutions worldwide.

Its increasing presence across Europe comes as investment companies migrate new asset classes to electronic platforms and prepare for compliance regulations regarding real time data capture, order recordkeeping, and transaction execution reporting.

Antoine Baptiste at Exane BNP Paribas added: “With the ever increasing speed and complexity requirements of a modern electronic trading platform, Corvil’s ability to independently monitor our end-to-end transaction latencies at the microsecond level is vital.  One of the key selling points of Corvil for us was their strength at combining low-level network detail with high-level business concepts.”
