TMX Atrium™, provider of smarter infrastructure solutions for the financial community, today announced that the UBS MTF dark pool has joined the TMX Atrium community due to increasing demand for off-exchange trading from other community members.
UBS MTF connectivity is provided to the TMX Atrium point of presence (POP) within London 4 (LD4) and is instantly accessible by the entire TMX Atrium community. With 25 POPs across North America, Europe and Russia, clients in the community can access a wide range of multi-region, multi-asset class venues including the recently added UBS MTF.
Designed to complement diverse trading strategies, a simple connection to TMX Atrium allows members to trade multiple venues. In addition to multiple lit venues, the addition of the fast growing UBS MTF enhances the number of dark pools available on TMX Atrium. UBS MTF, established in 2010, is now the largest dark pool.*
