Chicago Based Greenline Financial Technologies has expanded
into Europe as it looks to expand its exposure into European
exchanges by providing FIX Protocol support systems. It is also
looking to acquire new clients in the proprietary trading
sector by expanding its new London team as it capitalises on
strong new interest.
Greg Ginzburg, product integration manager, Europe at Greenline
told FO Week that the FIX and electronic trading
specialist is in the process of signing several new clients,
but the priority for the firms focus remains client
support, and continue expanding connectivity expertise to
European exchanges having just agreed a deal with the Swiss
Exchange, where the bourse will use Greenlines FIX
testing and simulation tool: VeriFIX 4.5, and having finalised
connection with Eurex and Liffe. We are looking to expand
our FIX client base and develop connectivity expertise to more
European exchanges, he said.
Ginzburg added that he anticipated a successful period for the
company, as he explained interest in FIX is expanding past the
traditional stronghold of America. Ginzburg continued that the
implementation of Mifid may also drive the new interest in FIX,
as many of the financial institutions rush to comply with the
EU standards, before November.
Greenline has built up its London presence through the recent
hires of Genzburg and Sean Hawie.
