Vela expands Systematic Internaliser Data Hub offering with Virtu Financial

RELATED TOPICS​

Market access technology provider Vela has added Virtu Financial, an electronic market making firm, to the growing list of electronic liquidity providers delivering market data through its new Systematic Internaliser (SI) Data Hub, which is part of its comprehensive MiFID II solution suite.

 Based upon Vela’s core feed handler technology, the SI Data Hub provides a low latency, high performance normalised market data solution. The functionality aggregates SI data and allows clients to receive their own bespoke SI price feeds through a single connection and unified API. The SI Data Hub also provides clients with their own configurable Best Bid and Offer feed for a holistic view of an instrument’s liquidity across venues. Vela delivers a similar solution for exchanges and multilateral trading facilities (MTFs) with the European Best Bid and Offer (EBBO) feed.
 
Ollie Cadman (pictured), Head of Business Operations EMEA, at Vela, says: “We are pleased to have added Virtu’s Equity and ETF data feeds to our SI Data Hub as well as a new feed within our SMDS direct feed handling product.” Adding, “Our agile feed handler integration process means that as more firms register as SIs, we can work with them to become a member of our SI Data Hub and ensure our mutual clients are receiving the data.”
 
“Integrating Virtu’s disclosed liquidity streams into the Vela SI Data Hub delivers a seamless and cost-effective connectivity solution for clients to access Virtu’s competitive and transparent liquidity across Equity and ETF securities in a MiFID II compliant environment,” says Christiaan Scholtes, Head of EMEA Markets at Virtu Financial. “We look forward to a growing partnership with Vela as the market continues to embrace MiFID II’s transparent Systematic Internaliser regime.”
 
Vela is currently integrating data from a number of firms that have already registered as SIs and some that expect to register shortly after the regulations become effective in January 2018.
