Stock Exchange of Thailand Signs New Agreement With Cinnober

Cinnober The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) has signed a new license agreement with Cinnober for a term of seven years, covering a multi-asset class trading platform for SET’s equities and derivatives markets, including index calculation and data dissemination functionality, built on Cinnober’s TRADExpress technology and the Scila market surveillance system.
The exchange has been using Cinnober’s software since September 2012 and since then the operator has strengthened its position in the market to become the most liquid equities exchange in the ASEAN region, with derivatives trading volumes and open interest growing steadily.

Peter K. Lenardos, CEO of the Cinnober Group, said:

“We are pleased and proud to further our partnership with SET and support their future growth. Over the past 6 years, SET has successfully realized ambitious goals using Cinnober technology. A key to their growth has been streamlining client connectivity with the SET markets using global standards, while offering stability, speed and performance.”
The Stock Exchange of Thailand based its single-platform solution for equities and derivatives, called SET CONNECT, on Cinnober’s TRADExpress Trading System. By integrating these two previously separated markets, client connectivity was optimized using the global standard FIX, and combination orders introduced across the two markets.
Cinnober Financial Technology, the global independent provider of technology solutions for the finance industry, was recently on the news for being on the verge to be acquired by Nasdaq for $190 million.
Peter Lenardos became the Chief Executive Officer in August 2018 following the departure of Veronica Augustsson to pursue other interests.
