Furthermore, the adoption of Euronext’s Exchange Data Publisher (XDP), an ultra-low latency market solution, allows for the streamlined utilization of a vast array of functions for derivatives market participants.

According to Roger Lee, head of market operations for the global market division at HKEx, in a recent statement on the project, “The completion of the OMD rollout is a significant milestone in the evolution of our market platforms. OMD is a transformative system because it now brings all of our HKEx markets to the same high level of customer service, as well as extending direct distribution of our market data to the Mainland.”

“Today’s announcement is the result of a close collaboration with HKEx to develop a highly reliable and cost efficient method of distributing data to subscribers. XDP provides a solution that will allow HKEx to further develop its market and increase its value in the longer term through its flexible architecture and ability to align market data content with customer needs. We are delighted to have successfully completed this important project,” added Nick Thornton, global head of market solutions, Exchange Solutions at Euronext, in an accompanying statement.
