Eurex EnLight

The selective RFQ platform

Combining off-book liquidity with on-exchange efficiency

Eurex EnLight is a fully integrated exchange RFQ platform, designed to enhance market structure and bring together buying and selling interest from all types of market participants engaged in off-book trading.

The fully automated solution replicates the core aspects of voice trading while providing its users all the advantages of automatic electronic price formation, data collection and timely information retrieval to meet MiFID II Best Execution requirements.

Eurex EnLight is an additional exchange execution mechanism serving larger scale execution requirements, not suited for the central limit order book.

Since June 2018, Eurex EnLight has performed very successfully during the production phase covering Swiss equity and equity index derivatives on top of the current fixed income product suite.

In May 2019 the proven concept has been taken to the next stage, extending the product suite by adding all equity and equity index options and corresponding futures available at Eurex Exchange.

Furthermore, Eurex EnLight will accelerate efficiencies in the off-book price formation process by streamlined processing. Eventually, Eurex will offer a full STP process with the certainty of execution on completed deals.

Key benefits

Increase your process efficiency
The new platform enhances the process around coping with large and complex orders while reducing the time-to-market of price discovery from multiple participants. It also allows for improved intelligence capabilities via collection and analysis of price formation data. In the future, it will additionally enhance operational efficiencies by utilizing on-exchange execution mechanisms allowing for full STP workflows.

Your source to liquidity and new pools
The platform enables easy access to a large number of participants and thereby provides for liquidity in complex, large orders.

Built on proven technology
Accessible via Eurex GUI or T7 API. No separate agreements or special setup required.

Comply with Best Execution obligations
Eurex EnLight assists members to comply with MiFID II/ MiFIR obligations, specifically around Best Execution. With the trade capture and reporting functionality, handwritten desk blotters, voice calls and chats can be superseded with exchange data and reporting for assistance with proof of Best Execution.

Take advantage of improved and automated compliance control and reporting
Fully electronic platform with comprehensive audit trail functionality facilitating in-house compliance.
