SIX Telekurs now transmits RTS data in real time as opposed to hourly snapshots, as was previously the case. As a result, customers of SIX Telekurs have immediate access to events in Russia's first regulated market. RTS Exchange was established in 1995. The RTS Index, which has also been in operation since September 1995, is based on the 50 most liquid stocks and is regarded as a benchmark for the Russian financial services industry.
"Our customers in Austria, the UK and the US in particular have been making use of this expanded offering", says Dominique Tanner, Head of Business Development at SIX Telekurs. "The banks have developed strong ties with Eastern Europe in recent years. We intend to support them in gaining further ground in these markets."
The RTS data offering from SIX Telekurs covers shares, bonds, funds, futures and options in roubles and dollars. Stock trading and trading in options and futures currently represent the most liquid market segments.
