LeapRate: How has the market response been to the company’s new ESMA/MIFID II compliance services launched last month? Imran Firoz: As you know, Company’s mission has always been to deliver an open, transparent and fair trading system to FX/OTC market participants. As a result, we were in a strong position to timely launch our ESMA/MIFID II compliance services which provide dedicated solutions to meet the best execution policy requirements described in the MIFID II documentation and guidelines published by ESMA. We have received positive feedbacks from several brokers and closely working with them to ensure full compliant by end of 2017. Our independent BBO (Best-Bid-Offer) feed aggregates prices from various liquidity sources in our proprietary matching engine and can be used as a reference market price point. This system will enable the brokers to prove that trade execution is in line with the real market prices. Further, our solution can automate verification of brokers’ price feeds before the trade execution takes place. This solution addresses the requirements of best execution policy as described in the new ESMA/MIFID II regulations. Read More “Match-Trade presents its technology in leaprate interview”
