What the ICE/NYSE Merger Means for the Industry courtesy of the TABB Group


With each passing day, the acquisition of NYSE Euronext by ICE seems more likely to receive final approval. Here are 5 ways the deal will impact the capital markets.

February 15, 2013, marked the end of the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act waiting period in the acquisition of NYSE Euronext by IntercontinentalExchange(ICE). With each passing day, the acquisition seems more likely to receive final approval. As we await the next phase of regulatory approval from the SEC, we wanted to share a few thoughts on how we believe the acquisition will impact current clearing, reporting and trading operations, as well as how the two exchanges can benefit from the merger.

1. Need for Physical Trading Floor

The future format of the NYSE trading floor seems to be on the minds of everyone. There are analyst speculations that ICE’s CEO, Jeffrey Sprecher, will close the trading floor, as was done to the New York Board of Trade in 2012 four years after it was acquired by ICE. However, according to interviews, Sprecher has expressed intentions to keep the physical trading floor intact.

[Related: “It May Be ‘Bye-Bye to the Big Board,’ But the NY Times Should Get Its Story Right”]

Both companies have robust electronic trading, and Sprecher has acknowledged the value of NYSE’s legacy in voice brokering. As technology continues to dominate the exchange space, there has been recognition of the value of voice brokering (by which the NYSE is defined). The market has ironically become too complex to rely only on computer-to-computer trading, showing the physical trading floor still provides an intrinsic value in keeping an orderly marketplace.

2. Impact on Clearing

US-based firms that are major players in the derivative space will benefit by having a local trading and clearing venue, through reductions in clearing costs and operational risks. Typically, coordinating multiple back-office processes and reconciliations between the US and UK calls for duplicate efforts, resulting in back-to-back bookings to flatten balance sheets and delays in handling breaks; having the ability to manage these operational processes will make for a more efficient process.

Title VII of the Dodd Frank Act, which requires central clearing for certain derivatives contracts, has limited NYSE’s presence in the US-based interest rate swaps clearing business. Currently, the NYSE has a small presence in the US-based interest rate swap clearing business, due to a lack of access to a central clearinghouse, now mandated by the Dodd-Frank Act. Through the acquisition, NYSE will be able to benefit from ICE’s presence in European fixed income derivative trading and clearing.

3. Impact on Market Participants

Reductions in clearing costs can translate into cost savings for market participants. Just last year, ICE had to increase its trading and clearing fee due to “regulatory burdens,” and with the merger of NYSE Euronext, ICE will also have to compete with other exchanges on transaction costs. Even if fees increase after the merger, market participants would still fare better than if the two companies operated independently. This newly merged exchange will be able to offer a larger array of products and services, so that market participants can look to fewer companies for trading execution and clearing services, thereby decreasing expenses associated with initial client on-boarding.

4. Impact on Reporting

NYSE’s core data products make U.S. market data free and available, using consolidated tapes, giving transparency to last-sales price and quotes. It also sells its non-core data products to analytics traders, researchers and academics. ICE will be able to leverage NYSE’s experience in data reporting, as it looks to setup its own swap data repository (SDR), in order to meet CFTC mandates for real time swap reporting.

[Related: “Commissioner O’Malia Talks Derivatives Reform: Assessing and Improving the Change”]

ICE has already set up a registered SDR — and the ICE Trade Vault, which will offer both recordkeeping and reporting services for credit default swaps. However, as reporting requirements go live for additional asset classes, it will be necessary to offer data recordkeeping and reporting services to these as well. This is where NYSE’s existing core data products can benefit ICE.

5. Benefits in Merging of Exchanges

Although ICE and NYSE’s product offerings differ vastly, the functions of trading, clearing and settlement demands often overlap, and both are registered with the CFTC as designated contract markets. Efficiencies can be gained when these two exchanges tackle the requirements in swaps reporting and recordkeeping, external business conduct rules and documentation standards in this era of heightened standards for SIFI. As regulatory mandates increase the operating costs for exchanges, it is becoming prudent to explore additional mergers.

To write, or not to write? – The Dilemma for ISVs and their role in the success of a new trading platform,


http://www.fow.com/Article/3154709/Themes/26528/To-write-or-not-to-write.html

To write, or not to write?

12 February 2013

Nasdaq’s new trading platform NLX is gearing up for launch in London. Sentiment is shifting in favour of the prospects for the MTF. This highlights the dilemma for ISVs and their role in the success of a new trading platform, argues William Mitting.

Six months ago you would have struggled to find anyone in London who thought that NLX, the new London-based exchange from Nasdaq OMX, would succeed.

The prevailing wisdom was the plan to launch six interest rate contracts replicating the most liquid on Liffe and Eurex was too simplistic, the margin efficiencies intangible and the distraction of regulation and rising costs elsewhere too great to guarantee the involvement from the banks and prop trading firms that it needs for a successful launch.

Today all the talk in London is of NLX. After six months of painstaking road-showing and collaboration with local participants by Charlotte Crosswell and her team at NLX there is a real buzz about the launch around the City.

Much of that buzz is coming from the proprietary trading houses. Attracted by the lower fees, the lower participation from HFTs expected on the platform and the belief that the banks, who are expected to benefit from the margin efficiency enabled by portfolio margining across the yield curve, will provide liquidity, London’s largest prop houses are increasingly talking up the prospects of the MTF.

This rapid shift in sentiment poses a challenge for those ISVs who made the call not to write to the MTF for its launch. The highest profile among those ISVs is Trading Technologies, which is not expected to be ready for the launch of NLX.

FOW understands that TT has been in negotiations with NLX over writing to it but has not yet reached agreement on how that will be funded. TT and NLX declined to comment on any negotiations. Initially this was widely viewed as a significant blow to NLX’s chances, but as the buzz around the platform grows, some are asking if TT has made a mistake.

Jeff Mezger, head of market connectivity, told FOW that TT had “not ruled out connecting to NLX” at its launch and see the benefits of margin efficiency but was currently focused in-flight projects such as the connection to Eris Exchange and its beta stage MultiBroker platform.

“We take into account a number of factors when prioritising the projects we work on. For exchange projects we take into account exchange location, familiarity with the exchange platform, connectivity costs, client interest, exchange volume, asset classes, products traded and the changing regulatory environment.

“We also take into account what other projects we have in flight and the availability of resources to work on the project.”

This dilemma of whether to connect to a new trading platform is a relatively new phenomenon in derivatives markets but will become more of an issue as new platforms launch in the wake of industry efforts and new regulations aimed at opening up competition.

All ISVs have limited manpower and resources to write to new platforms and the decision of whether to do so is often made with little visibility as to whether that platform will succeed.

Usually one or a number of customers will help to fund the connection, sometimes the platform or exchange will pay the majority of the cost and for “dead certs” the ISV will fund it in the knowledge that it will see a return on investment. However, what constitutes a dead cert is becoming less clear as markets proliferate.

Steve Grob, director of group strategy at Fidessa, said: “The whole dynamic of ISVs connecting to venues has changed since Mifid was introduced back in 2007. Volumes that were concentrated in two or three exchanges were spread over multiple platforms.”

This altered the economics of connectivity as it meant that brokers were having to spread the same volumes over multiple venues and this inevitably led to downward pressure on gateway pricing. At the same time, the number of platforms launched with uncertain prospects is increasing.

When Liffe launched its Connect platform at the turn of the century, many ISVs wrote to it and made a decent return doing so. As the derivatives market becomes more fragmented thanks to Dodd Frank and EMIR, it is harder to predict which platforms are worth the investment.

“The challenge is picking the markets that have the best chance of success,” says Steve Woodyatt, chief executive of Object Trading, which will connect to NLX on day one.

Hamish Purdey, the chief executive of Ffastfill, which is also going live from day one, agrees: “It takes significant commercial judgement. Any ISV has competing priorities and the challenge is finding the ones with the greatest return on investment.”

For fledgling exchanges, a major ISV writing to it can provide a significant boost and it is not unheard of for exchanges to pay large sums to global ISVs to write to them. However, this is rare and in most instances ISVs must make a call on the commercial benefits of connecting to a new exchange.

The fact that the cost of switching to a new provider can be high means that if a large ISV does not write to an exchange, its customers, if unwilling to fund the connection themselves, are often left with no options and the decision not to connect can be contentious.

However, as competition grows in terms of connectivity providers and software-as-a-service operations makes the process of switching provider less arduous, a shift in sentiment in terms of the market’s perception of the need to connect to an exchange can potentially wrong foot ISVs.

RTS has announced publically that it will write to NLX from launch and FOW understands that Fidessa, Sungard, Object Trading, Stellar and Orc are also among those ISVs providing day one access.

TT and Marex’s STS are among the notable absences from day one trading (although FOW understands STS will be up and running shortly afterwards) but there is still some distance to run and TT could still commit before the launch date, which is expected for early Q2. However, the NLX example has brought to the fore a very modern dilemma for ISVs in the derivatives business.

A great thesis to read – Derivation of a general purpose architecture for automatic user interface generation

Abstract:

Many software projects spend a significant proportion of their time developing the User Interface (UI), therefore any degree of automation in this area has clear benefits. Research projects to date generally take one of three approaches: interactive graphical specification tools, model-based generation tools, or language-based tools. The first two have proven popular in industry but are labour intensive and error-prone. The third is more automated but has practical problems which have led to a lack of industry adoption. This thesis set out to understand and address these limitations. It studied the issues of UI generation in practice using Action Research cycles guided by interviews, adoption studies, case studies and close collaboration with industry practitioners. It further applied the emerging field of software mining to address some of these issues. Software mining is used to collate multiple inspections of an application’s artefacts into a detailed model, which can then be used to drive UI generation. Finally, this thesis explicitly defined bounds to the generation, such that it can usefully automate some parts of the UI development process without restricting the practitioner’s freedom in other parts. It proposed UI generation as a way to augment manual UI construction rather than replace it. To verify the research, this thesis built an Open Source project using successive generations of Iterative Development, and released and promoted it to organisations and practitioners. It tracked and validated the project’s reception and adoption within the community, with an ultimate goal of mainstream industry acceptance. This goal was achieved on a number of levels, including when the project was recognised by Red Hat, an industry leader in enterprise middleware. Red Hat acknowledged the applicability and potential of the research within industry and integrated it into their next generation products.

The state of play in EMEA an ATMonitor Blog posted by Anne Plested, Fidessa on Dec 21, 2012


As the Council of the European Union hands over to Ireland for the first trio of the 2013-2014 Presidency rotation (1st January 2013 – 30th June 2013), the outgoing Cyprus Presidency published a progress report on MiFID II / MiFIR on 13th December. This report outlines the current status of the compromise proposal negotiations, pointing out the main areas where Council agreement is yet to be reached. The areas of disagreement, the report says, may require further discussion at the political level. Once a qualified majority agreement is reached within the Council, expected Q1 2013, the trilogue process (European Commission proposed legislation vs. the European Parliament amendments and the Council amendments) can commence with the aim of agreeing the Level 1 final text of MiFID II / MiFIR.

A few stocking filler highlights below, and all the very best for the new year!

Organised Trading Facility (OTF)The Presidency reports that delegations have been largely divided on OTF proposals. One side is in favour of the introduction of the OTF. The other side wants stricter OTF rules, or even the removal of this new trading venue category, to ensure that all organised trading can only take place on the existing types of execution venue, Regulated Markets (RMs) and Multilateral Trading Facilities (MTFs). The current Presidency is in favour of keeping the new OTF category but limiting it to non-equity instruments, and also allowing matched principal trading, which the Presidency does not consider proprietary. We can expect more debate on OTFs in 2013.

Transparency waiversThere are four types of pre-trade transparency waivers currently allowed for equity markets: the large in scale waiver; the reference price waiver; the negotiated price waiver; and the order management system waiver. The Commission, and several delegations, would like to maintain only one of these – the large in scale waiver. The Presidency has proposed keeping all four waivers, but narrowing down their scope.

Investor protectionCommissions paid by third parties (inducements) are viewed as a major source of conflicts of interest. The Presidency compromise text imposes stricter disclosure requirements on firms receiving inducements. A smaller group of Member States wants to introduce a general ban.

Derivatives and clearingThe Council continues to have difficulty reaching agreement on access to clearing. The EC proposals to remove barriers to non-discriminatory access to clearing facilities do not sit well with those who believe this will lead to fragmentation at the trading level and to a reduction in liquidity. Any proposals within MiFIR will need to be aligned with the provisions of EMIR which is more advanced having already had its technical standards adopted. Pushing ahead, ESMA has just published a consultation paper on guidelines for establishing consistent, efficient and effective assessments of interoperability arrangements. These guidelines focus on the risks that might arise from interoperability arrangements and outline the areas on which CCPs should focus, and which National Competent Authorities should verify, in order to mitigate those risks.

Third country regimeSeveral Member States have expressed serious concerns, and have strong reservations, regarding the Commission’s proposal introducing a third country regime for the provision of investment services in the EU. Many seem to be of the opinion that the introduction of a third country regime is unnecessary and disproportionate and would prefer to keep national rules. Based on these concerns, the Presidency has attempted to preserve the effect of the current regime, but has retained the requirement that a third country firm shall establish a branch in the Member State where it intends to provide investment services or perform investment activities to retail clients.

MAN Group live on SWIFT’s global ETC messaging solution


Man Group plc (“Man”)™, the world-leading alternative investment management business announced today that they have gone live with SWIFT’s Global Electronic Trade Confirmation (GETC) messaging service, having successfully confirmed first trades with Morgan Stanley via the Cor Financial Salerio (“Salerio”)™post-trade management service.

Man Group now has the flexibility to match securities trades both centrally or locally. This flexibility reduces risk by eliminating dependencies on a single matching provider.

Financial services firms are under increasing pressure to bring efficiencies to post-trade processing and reduce risk. Man Group is one of the first buy-side firms to take advantage of the benefits that choice between central and local matching can offer. This illustrates a commitment to delivering on-going operational improvements in post-trade processing. SWIFT’s GETC solution uses the ISO standard to provide a consistent messaging format from block through to settlement.

Robert Ottley, Head of Trading Operations, Man Group said, “The project to deliver SWIFT GETC has been completed in less than seven weeks from the first test release to go-live. This is thanks not only to the quick turnaround from Salerio, but also to Morgan Stanley who have been extremely supportive during the testing phase of this project. We will continue to add brokers to this network throughout 2013.”

Michael Fiscella, Executive Director, Morgan Stanley comments, “Morgan Stanley is pleased to be supporting MAN Group’s vision of building partnerships to deliver common solutions. Enabling STP and standardization through proven industry platforms enhances operational efficiencies and we commend MAN Group, Cor Financial Salerio and SWIFT for their efforts in this successful implementation.”

Bruce Hobson, Head of Cor Financial Salerio added, “We congratulate Man Group in taking the lead as early buy-side pioneers. This initiative will allow their organisation to match their trades both centrally and locally which in turn, will reduce both cost and risk. We welcome other buy-side firms to follow Man Group’s example.”

Arun Aggarwal, Head of UK, Ireland and Nordics, SWIFT said, “We are delighted that Man Group has gone live on SWIFT’s global ETC messaging solution. Working with Salerio helps us to increase our coverage of major buy-side firms. SWIFT’s global ETC solution enables firms to preserve their existing investment in STP and matching solutions, and to cost-effectively retain or achieve high levels of operational efficiency.”
