NYSE Technologies, the commercial technology unit of NYSE Euronext, has established Knight Capital Group as a destination on the Secure Financial Transaction Infrastructure (SFTI) network.
SFTI provides customers with access to the financial markets and market participants through a single point of access. SFTI customers can now access Knight’s electronic trading products and services from the same connections they currently use to access NYSE Euronext markets, other exchanges and brokers.
The SFTI network now includes Knight’s electronic market-making, Knight Link access to equity liquidity, Knight Direct multi-asset class EMS and agency-only algorithms, the Knight Match dark pool, the HotSpot FX ECN and Knight BondPoint’s fixed income ECN.
Ken Barnes, vice president at NYSE Technologies, said: “Knight provides a valuable new destination and resource for our customers and we’re proud to include them on the SFTI network. With each exchange and broker dealer destination we add to SFTI and our FIX Marketplace, we’re building a platform that offers a combination of speed and reach coupled with a unique capital markets focus seldom found in the industry.”
Meaghan Mullins, managing director of Knight, Said: “Knight is pleased to open our products to the wide breadth of NYSE Technologies clients over the reliable and resilient SFTI network. We are committed to providing as many points as possible for market participants to access Knight’s liquidity, and our establishment as a destination on the SFTI network furthers our goal.”
