The Mexican Derivatives Exchange (MexDer) has installed a new front-end solution from independent software vendor Realtime Systems Group as part of its efforts to attract more international business.
The official rollout of RTS’s front-end solution occurred in January and was preceded by the customisation and implementation of market specifics and training courses for Mexican trading participants.
“We are continuing our efforts to facilitate international access to our markets and our benchmark Latin America products,” said Jorge Alegria, CEO, MexDer. “We are pleased to see that market participants confirmed our choice for the versatile RTS technology.”
MexDer members will be able to access the platform via RTS’ high-performance trading platform, the RTD Realtime Trading Desktop and eRTD, the firm’s white-labelled and web-based front-end. MexDer began operations at the end of 1998 with its previous electronic offering installed in 1999. It offers a range of futures and options based on underlying assets including fixed income, single stock, exchange-traded funds and currency.
