LSEG and Murex expand connectivity via AWS to improve real time cloud data services

Expansion means Murex’s risk platform MX.3 can now be directly connected to LSEG’s real time market data service, Real-Time – Optimized (RTO), using AWS.

The London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) and capital markets trading and risk solutions provider Murex have expanded their connectivity to enhance real time data services for their clients.

Following the expanded connectivity, Murex’s MX.3 platform can now be integrated with the London Stock Exchange Group’s (LSEG) Real-Time – Optimized (RTO) cloud-based data solution when hosted on Amazon Web Services.

This access means that Murex clients using the platform can now choose how to consume real-time market data, the pair claimed. By using the same connectivity, MX.3 have access to three deployment models that LSEG offers: RTO, Real-Time Managed Distribution Service (RTMDS), and Real-Time Distribution System (RTDS deployed).

RTO gives users access to LSEG’s real-time market data, which uses the cloud to take data from exchanges and OTC markets globally.

Real-time infrastructure is managed by LSEG and deployed in its private cloud using the RTMDS model, while RTDS deployed is managed by the client and deployed on-premises.

Alexandre Belingard, head of market data connectivity at Murex, explained that “the ability to install MX.3 and plug it easily and quickly with the Real-Time – Optimized feed on the cloud enables clients to reallocate their resources in tasks that create added value and differentiation.”

Back in September 2022, Murex integrated with ICE Data Services, which is part of Intercontinental Exchange, in order to improve access to ICE’s fixed income and derivatives data via the MX.3 platform.

Stuart Brown, group head of enterprise data solutions at LSEG, said: “MX.3 is the key front-to-back-to-risk platform for many of our customers and we are now able to power this solution through our recent data innovations. This is another great example of how an LSEG business is making real-time, historical and reference data access more open, accessible, and efficient for the financial markets.”
