SuperDerivatives and Liffe have teamed up to provide SuperDerivatives’s users with direct access to the Liffe Connect electronic trading platform.

"The partnership will give SuperDerivatives customers the ability to price, analyse and trade exchange-traded Liffe products within SD’s applications alongside OTC products – allowing them greater flexibility in choosing the right market for realising their investment goals.

‘SuperDerivatives’s certification for our newly launched Liffe Connect Version 10, brings other important benefits to their customer base, including full access to the functionality within the Liffe Connect API and full market data,’ says Paul MacGregor, director technology partnerships, Liffe.

‘SuperDerivatives’s real-time pricing and trading applications have earned a reputation for being easy to use with rich and unique analytical capabilities. We are excited that their users will have access to the Liffe Connect, directly from within the SD platform.’

The synergy of the two leading platforms will enable SuperDerivatives users to see streaming prices from the Euronext exchange and interact with the market through SD’s web-based applications.

‘The two companies are working together very closely to ensure a smooth user experience for SuperDerivatives customers. The SD pricing system will merge OTC prices with exchange prices to maximize transparency for users with the target of tightening the bid/offer spreads in the corresponding exchange products.

‘The combination of SD and Liffe represents a convergence of the OTC and exchange markets for the benefit of all users,’ says David Gershon, president and chief executive, SuperDerivatives.

‘By connecting the power of SuperDerivatives’s analytics with the liquidity of  Liffe we are creating a true idea-to-execution, streamlined process. This will eventually increase liquidity and bring greater transparency to interest rate derivatives products and other Liffe Connect derivative products.’

The two companies will also co-operate on various co-marketing and sales initiatives.
