SIX Telekurs expands supply of data from Eastern Europe and Central Asia

Zurich - 20 August 2009

Due to strong international demand, SIX Telekurs is expanding its supply of data from Eastern Europe and Central Asia. The expansion begins with the Russian provider, Russian Trading System (RTS Exchange), whose data is now being transmitted in real time.

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.
