Execution management provider Orc is offering its clients connectivity to new Canadian exchange Aequitas NEO.
Aequitas launched last Friday and offers equity trading in Canadian listed shares, with plans to offer listing services and unlisted share trading later this year.
Orc will provide connectivity for order routing and market data from Aequitas’ main lit book and its NEO Book.
“By leveraging technology and market innovation, we are committed to providing all market participants with a level playing field and ensuring all investors feel they have a fair chance to participate,” said Karl Ottywill, chief operating officer, Aequitas NEO Exchange. “We are pleased that Orc supports us in this new endeavour.”
