Orc Group AB Key Developments

Orc Announces the Availability of Market Adapter to the China Financial Futures Exchange

Orc announced the availability of a market adapter to the China Financial Futures Exchange (CFFEX). This new Orc market adapter connects exchange members and trading firms to the CFFEX platform for derivatives trading. The new market adapter has been fully tested and developed on the Financial Easy Market Access System (FEMAS). Orc’s international trading clients can now trade on CFFEX via this low-latency market access, and local Chinese market participants can leverage the full suite of Orc Trading Bricks and Execution Bricks solutions to further enhance their overall trading capabilities and capture the emerging market opportunities.

Orc Introduces Pioneering Trading Solution and New Expert Services Offering to Facilitate MiFID II Transition

Orc announced an expanded trading solution and expert services offering to address new requirements arising from updated European market regulation. From January 3, 2017, the revised MiFID II Directive and the new MiFIR Regulation will apply throughout the EU, with major implications expected for market participants: trading venues, investment firms and their clients. Orc has already established a dedicated Market Structure Strategy team for the mission to advise clients on market trends and regulatory matters, while building an enhanced solution which combines compliance with high performance and business-driven functionality. This development covers Orc's Trading Bricks and Execution Bricks platforms, with the goal to deliver turn-key, tailored solutions that are fully MiFID II-enabled. Orc's development efforts are focused on key areas where MiFID II introduces fundamental changes in the European market structure, and conducted with the common design objective to allow implementation with minimal impact on existing trading infrastructure. MiFID II calls for a significantly increased volume of regulatory reporting and monitoring, resulting in a potentially excessive data collection workload. Orc's recently announced partnership with OneTick adds new data management and analytics capabilities to help clients meet the stringent demands on reporting and proof of Best Execution. Orc will integrate these new capabilities in a fully hosted and managed solution, Orc Analyst. This solution will collect and consolidate order/trade data to secure fully compliant reporting and monitoring. Orc Analyst will be out-of-the-box compatible with existing trading solutions, including Orc Trader, Orc Liquidator, Orc Tbricks and any other system enabled for FIX drop copy of orders and trades in real time. This enables firms to stay on top of all MiFID II requirements regarding market abuse, reporting and execution quality. Additional MiFID II-related development will address specific trading functionality, such as updating of algorithmic trading tools, adjusting matching and quoting engines to include Systematic Internalisers and other new market models to provide Best Execution. The revised transparency rules on pre-trade and post-trade information and market data feeds will have immediate effects on trading platforms, processes and strategies. Another change brought by MiFID II are new obligations for market makers, a vital function served by tailored Orc solutions.
