In this article, Mike O’Hara and Adam Cox of The Realization Group investigate a radical new concept in trading: the emerging market trading hub. By linking far-flung exchanges at a neutral site in a developed market location, a trading hub essentially brings the market to the liquidity rather than the other way around. Speaking with Rob Bath, Vice President for Global Solutions at Digital Realty, the company that is driving the initiative, and with Hirander Misra, CEO of GMEX Technologies, which is supplying technology and business expertise to a swathe of hub participants.
They also hear from exchange executives Kristian Schach Møller, CEO at Agricultural Commodity Exchange for Africa, Joseph Kitamirike, CEO of ALTX Africa Group, and Alisher Shernazarov, CEO at Central Asian Stock Exchange. Stuart Turner, CEO of post-trade technology specialist Avenir Technology, a vendor backed by GMEX Technologies which is also involved in the project, also features in the report.
