ION-owned LIST upgrades FastTrade solution and migrates clients onto Euronext's Optiq trading platform

The client migration follows Euronext's acquisition of the Borsa Italiana Cash and Derivatives markets exchange in April 2021. 


April 19, 2023 LIST, an ION company, announced that it has updated its market making and trading FastTrade solution, facilitating the migration of Borsa Italiana trading clients onto Euronext's Optiq technology trading platform.


Euronext is replacing the Borsa Italiana exchange's previous Millennium technology with its Optiq trading platform.


LIST's upgraded FastTrade will offer trading functionalities specific to Euronext's Optiq technology trading platform including order collection (OMS) smart order routing, execution algos (for equity and fixed income), risk management, quoting, and pricing. 


LIST also activated new data centers, communication lines, and software versions to support changes in market models and workflows and to support migration.


Vito Mangiaracina, Chief Technology Officer at LIST commented: "With LIST technology processing over 65% of equity order flows from Italian market members daily, it was crucial that our FastTrade upgrade and deployment enabled a seamless transition to Euronext's Optiq platform. This required a huge amount of development and included a major software release. Thanks to the dedication, professionalism, and teamwork across LIST, we achieved our goal of migrating our clients, and the trading and surveillance product lines."


The Chief Services Officer at LIST, Flavio Mazzarotto added: The migration to Optiq presented multiple challenges, including change in the technology stack and new hosting infrastructure. We developed this carefully alongside our clients, from detailing the migration roadmap to supporting them during preliminary test phases. Our efforts paid off on migration day; our clients went live on the new system with zero impact on activity on other markets."
