Jon Parsons, COO at Ultumus, added: “big xyt has successfully delivered clear transparency on European cross-border Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) liquidity through consolidated reporting of bid/offer spreads and volumes. It is clear that spreads vary widely throughout the spectrum of European exchanges and cause ETF liquidity fragmentation which can result in a challenging execution environment for investors. big xyt provides investors with the insight to enable efficient trading which is secured through transparency of the tightest spreads across all European listings.”

Robin Mess, CEO of big xyt, said: “All our product enhancements are as a result of extensive discussions with clients and potential users about their requirements and we take great pride in providing solutions to their challenges.”
