MTF/OTF Infrastructure

Swift transaction speeds, trading incentives and lower costs have contributed to the growth of popularity in MTFs throughout Europe – and, with the implementation of MiFID II, the growth in OTFs will soon follow. Under MiFID II, both MTFs and OTFs face additional regulatory obligations – including systematic execution, best execution, pre-trade transparency, post-trade transparency, transaction reporting and regulatory requirements.

Stricter oversight and new regulatory demands have placed significant pressure on these firms, all while they must continue to differentiate and retain a competitive edge. With margins continually squeezed, sell-side firms are now looking to enhance core competencies aimed at generating revenue rather than on upkeep of these operations.

To this end, the market technology division at Nasdaq, which has traditionally served the global market infrastructure operator community as a technology partner is now offering its robust Nasdaq Financial Framework technology into banks and brokers for complete outsourcing of trading infrastructure and operations, including regulatory reporting.
