Realtime Systems Group (RTS), an independent software vendor, has successfully passed the conformance test for cash, bonds and warrants on the Singapore Exchange (SGX), meaning that users can now trade all listed products on SGX through the RTS' Realtime Trading Desktop (RTD). Customers in Asia and around the world can now access both SGX securities and derivatives markets through RTS' direct connectivity offering and via its dedicated data centres.
"With SGX planning to decommission its own hosted front-end, SGX securities member firms are looking to find a trading solution to replace the native SESOPS trading terminal and enable them to trade different markets from one screen," says Henk Huitema, managing director, Asia Pacific, RTS. Alexander Lamb, senior vice president, business development, RTS comments, "By accessing SGX markets from RTS screens, traders can experience comfort, speed and reliability".
Rama Pillai, senior vice president and head of intermediaries, SGX, adds, "RTS' commitment to SGX reinforces the attractiveness of our market, and augments our ongoing effort to enhance market access and connectivity to both local and international customers. As part of the SGX Asian Gateway strategy, we offer a one-stop connectivity hub where international market players can trade our comprehensive suite of products to tap Asian growth opportunities through the Singapore marketplace." SGX lists a range of international risk management and trading instruments, including the Japanese Government Bonds, the Euroyen and the Nikkei 225 futures contracts.
