About the Customer

Stock Exchange:

  • Provides unique market infrastructure for electronic trading
  • More than 70 percent growth since launch
  • Approximately $6.5B+ in notional value matched daily

Challenge

Meeting Expanding Customer Demand and Regulatory Compliance

As a market operator with a uniquely designed market infrastructure that levels the playing field for all participants, the company faced several challenges:

  • Intense regulatory scrutiny (Reg603a, RegSCI) that was increasingly difficult to satisfy without independent oversight and on-demand forensic analysis
  • Responsiveness to customer order execution inquiries without dedicating significant resources to develop monitoring and analysis tools
  • Assuring optimal plant performance, capacity, and availability as customer demand grew

Solution

Single Streaming Analytics Platform that Delivered Business, Compliance and Operational Intelligence

Deployed across the exchange’s unique “speed bump” and proprietary order routing infrastructure and ticker plant, Corvil analyzed customer order flows and market data distribution to provide:

  • Independent and continuous comparative analysis of outgoing market data to CTA and UTP securities information processors and across multiple proprietary protocols in support of Reg 603a compliance
  • Independent, precision time-sequenced execution and market data records which serve as evidence
    for regulatory inquiries
  • Proactive oversight and alerting for RegSCI compliance, including external venues providing market
    data or executing externally routed order flow
  • Insight to optimize routing performance with:
    • Market data quality insights across all third-party feeds to assure timely, complete price data
    • Visibility into member firm’s order execution and performance; searchable by member firm,
      by order type or by trading symbol
    • Infrastructure and platform metrics to optimize capacity planning
  • Analytics-driven workflows for rapid investigation of and response to regulator and customer electronic transaction inquiries
