London Stock Exchange Group plc (LSEG) today announced it has entered into an agreement to provide its trading, clearing and market surveillance technology to Qatar Stock Exchange (QSE). The new platform will replace QSE’s existing trading and market surveillance systems and will enable QSE to expand into derivatives trading by adding the clearing house technology.
The new QSE solution will be based upon LSEG’s financial markets product suite, a robust, scalable and high-performance technology offering, which includes trading, market data, data analytics, risk management, market surveillance, clearing and CSD functionality. Utilising a common foundation, all products adhere to a unified architecture and share the same technology framework, data constructs and software engineering methodology.
At the completion of this project, QSE will have a proven technology solution, offering high performance, low latency matching; state-of-the-art real-time risk management and CCP capabilities; and a powerful market surveillance solution including market data visualisation and analytics.
LSEG’s financial markets technology products are used by over 25 financial markets infrastructure operators across the globe, including Johannesburg Stock Exchange, Singapore Exchange and LSEG.
Mr. Peter Jessup, Head of Market Infrastructure Business Development, Trading & Banking Solutions, LSEG, said:
“We are excited to have several of our products selected by QSE to power their market and clearing house and provide the foundation of QSE’s ongoing growth.”
Mr. Tamim Hamad Al-Kawari, CEO of Qatar Stock Exchange, commented:
“QSE is looking forward to working with LSEG to provide us with industry leading resilience, performance and business capabilities. The implementation of this technology will enable QSE and its customers to pave the way for QSE to become the leading financial markets innovator in the region.”
