Malta Stock Exchange has gone live on Deutsche Börse's T7 trading technology


Deutsche Börse's T7 trading technology was introduced today on the Malta Stock Exchange. This enables market participants in Malta to benefit from a state-of-the-art technology that is already in use at various stock exchanges around the world. To date, the exchange has used Deutsche Börse's Xetra trading system.

With the introduction of T7, latency in trading, meaning the duration of an order within the system, is again being reduced. In addition, international trading participants, using T7 for several markets, benefit from synergies through lower development and maintenance costs.

“Deutsche Börse stands for high-performance capital market technologies. By migrating to T7, our trading participants will benefit from a sustainable and reliable system that has proven itself internationally in numerous markets,” says Simon Zammit, CEO of Malta Stock Exchange. “We offer our customers access to a significantly larger network of international market participants.”

Stephan Schwandt, Head of Digitisation and Platforms in Deutsche Börse's Cash Market, says: “The launch of T7 on the Malta Stock Exchange shows once again that our technology solutions are highly valued internationally. T7 stands for low latency, enormous reliability and high flexibility. This is demonstrated by the wide range of usage on cash, derivatives and energy markets worldwide”.

Various other exchanges in Europe and around the world also use Deutsche Börse's trading infrastructure. In addition to the Eurex Exchange, the Xetra venue in Frankfurt and the European Energy Exchange (EEX), which all use T7, cash market trading on the Vienna Stock Exchange and the Shanghai Stock Exchange is based on technologies from Deutsche Börse. The exchanges in Prague, Budapest and Sofia have been using the infrastructure for several years.
