Trading Technologies available to SBI Thai Online clients. The global provider of high-performance professional trading software, infrastructure and data solutions has partnered with SBI Thai Online to distribute the TT platform to the firm’s client base. The Bangkok-based broker and subsidiary of SBI Group will provide international clients with access to the Thailand Futures Exchange (TFEX) via the exchange’s proprietary EMAPI API from within TFEX’s SET Data Center in Bangkok.
Mark Pottle, Regional Executive Sales Director for Trading
Technologies in Asia, said: “We are thrilled SBI has chosen TT as a solution to extend to their clients. As we expand into what are new markets for TT and exchanges such as TFEX, having the endorsement of local brokers like SBI, who are the experts in their region, is important. It allows us to bring our technologies to a brand new set of customers and extend the reach and interest in the Asian markets as a whole out to our wider international clients.”
Yukiko Roberts, Chief Executive Officer of SBI Thai Online, commented: “We think it’s important to introduce new tools and technologies to our clients and empower them with what other trading communities have been taking advantage of. Offering the TT platform to our clients brings some simple benefits such as faster speed to market as well as the opportunity to explore new ideas in trading, algorithmic trading or other ways which have not been so easily available to date.”
SBI Thai Online’s client base will have access to the TT platform’s full range of professional trading tools, including Autospreader, ADL, and APIs. TT’s privately managed infrastructure spans five continents, delivering secure market access and superior performance from anywhere in the world. The firm offers trading software, infrastructure and data solutions for proprietary traders, brokers, money managers, CTAs, hedge funds, commercial hedgers and risk managers. TT also offers domain-specific technology for cryptocurrency trading and machine-learning tools for trade surveillance.
The Chicago-based firm has recently hired two new executives to serve in senior-level leadership roles: Russ Cotton and Craig Mohan. They will serve in roles of Chief Operating Officer and Chief Growth Officer respectively.
In October, Trading Technologies made available all derivative products listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) Derivatives Market on the TT platform. Also this year, the firm expanded its execution and client connectivity services through the ICE Data Services European Liquidity Center (EULC) in Basildon, UK. The expansion gives access to trade 55 markets through the TT platform but clients also have the option to run their own TT platform components on private infrastructure in the data center through TT Prime.
