Jerome Bourgin, Market Data Manager at LITASCO commented. “As a global business we are constantly looking for ways to improve trader collaboration which in turn will improve our overall customer service capabilities. The MDXT solution is helping us to achieve this key objective. The first phase of the implementation is being used by our traders who are based in Geneva, New York City and Singapore and can now all share the same picture of all potential transactions in real-time, before trade execution, irrespective of their geographical location.
