Deutsche Börse and Irish Stock Exchange expand their partnership

As of today, Deutsche Börse Market Data + Services is taking over the hosting of the Irish Stock Exchange’s new trading surveillance system. Deutsche Börse will host the hardware on its premises in Frankfurt and provide support services. The surveillance system further enhances the electronic market surveillance capabilities of the Dublin-based exchange.

The Irish Stock Exchange is a global leader in the listing of debt and fund securities and is the centre of liquidity for trading shares in Irish companies. With over 32,000 securities listed on its markets, it is the exchange of choice for over 4,000 issuers from 80 countries to raise funds and access international investors. The Irish Stock Exchange has used Deutsche Börse’s Xetra trading platform since June 2000.

“We are pleased to expand our long standing and successful business relationship with the Irish Stock Exchange”, says Holger Wohlenberg, Managing Director of Deutsche Börse Market Data + Services. “Our experience in providing regulator compliant operations combined with high system availability and a very responsive support service make our hosting a very secure and reliable choice to help the Irish Stock Exchange meet increased requirements of trading surveillance for the Irish equity market.”

Brian Healy, Director Traded Markets, Development, Operations of the Irish Stock Exchange, explains: “We have an absolute commitment to providing our markets with the best infrastructure. Key to this for our equity market has been the technology partnership with Deutsche Börse. I am delighted to see the further development of that partnership with the implementation of our new Scila Surveillance system, in conjunction with Scila AB and Deutsche Börse.”
