Mexican Exchange Readies New Trading Platform, Forms New Relationships

Sell-Side Technology | 18 Nov 2011 | 20:07

Mexican exchange operator Bolsa Mexicana de Valores (BMV) plans to launch a new, as yet unnamed matching engine, which will deliver 100-microsecond message latency compared to the 25-millisecond latency of its current equities platform, and will offer the same performance as Singapore Exchange’s (SGX’s) platform. The engine will also support more than 200,000 messages per second, up from the 9,000 messages per second of its legacy trading system.

 BMV CEO Luis Téllez Kuenzler and other exchange officials spoke about these upgrades and the state of the Mexican economy at the second annual Connect & Trade Mexico event this week in New York.

Téllez Kuenzler says the improvements should attract attention from the high-frequency trading (HFT) community, which already makes up 20 percent of trading volume in the country even though HFT in Mexico began only two-and-a-half years ago.

“By successfully improving upon our operative rules to better comply with international market standards, BMV is now better equipped to provide global investors with more efficient trading and connectivity to Mexico,” Téllez Kuenzler adds.

Other functionalities will go live in January, says Jorge Alegria, senior vice president of BMV and CEO of the Mercado Mexicano de Derivados (MexDer) derivatives exchange, which is a BMV affiliate. One of these functionalities is a non-displayed midpoint order book for institutional investors looking to trade large blocks anonymously with reduced execution risk. Old rules regarding crossing trades will also be replaced; all stocks, global market equity securities and debt instruments will be crossed within the best bid/ask spread with no intervention, according to Alegria.

In August, MexDer and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) established a south-to-north order-routing agreement, which was followed by a north-to-south agreement. It gives Mexican investors access to CME Group’s benchmark derivatives contracts, including interest rates, foreign currencies, equity indexes, energy, metals and agricultural commodities. And it gives CME customers access to MexDer benchmark products, including Mexican Stock Exchange Index futures, bond futures and peso/dollar futures contracts.

The Mexican exchanges are also considering an invitation from the Mercado Integrado Latinoamericano (MILA)—a trading network among the exchanges of Chile, Peru, and Colombia—to join its network. In the meantime, BMV has signed an order-routing agreement with Chile and is working on another with Brazil’s BM&FBovespa exchange.

“The flow between Mexico and Brazil can be huge,” says Téllez Kuenzler.

Mexico to Launch FIBRAS Real Estate-Linked Securities, BMV CEO Tellez

Mexican real estate-linked securities known as Fibras will begin trading soon and represent “an enormous opportunity,” said Luis Tellez, chief executive officer of Bolsa Mexicana de Valores SAB, Mexico’s stock exchange operator.

The funds will be ready after Mexico’s Finance Ministry publishes adjustments to the rules governing the securities in the coming days, Tellez said today during a conference for real estate companies in Mexico City.

Tellez said Mexican Fibras are similar to real estate investment trusts in the U.S. and “fiscal matters” have delayed their entry in the Mexican market.

“This is a topic that’s been in discussions for a long time in Mexico, but I think we’re very close to seeing these instruments come out,” Tellez said. “There have already been various developers that have come to us in the Bolsa. They’ve shown interest and they are ready with their brokerages and underwriters.”

Tellez said the securities would likely have values of $100 million or more and Mexican banks and “institutional investors” have also shown interest.

Tellez said Mexico’s Bolsa is pushing to attract more companies to list in Mexico through new rules that give greater flexibility on corporate governance and reporting results to smaller firms.

Mexico has seen two initial share offerings in recent months after an 18-month dry spell.

Tellez said the nation’s private pension funds, which administered 1.2 trillion pesos ($93.5 billion) as of April, are stimulating Mexico’s financial markets. He said Mexico still needs to develop small-scale retail investing.

Through the agreement, CME Group will become the exclusive exchange provider of derivatives order routing services to BMV outside Latin America, and BMV will be the exclusive exchange provider of derivatives order routing services to CME Group in Mexico. BMV’s derivative products are offered through its derivatives subsidiary, MexDer.

CME Group and BMV have also agreed to pursue potential joint initiatives including product development, marketing and customer education as well as clearing opportunities. Additionally, BMV, CME Group and its Global Preferred Strategic Partner BM&FBOVESPA will initiate discussions about the aforementioned transaction and other commercial opportunities.

“Latin America is a key market for CME Group,” said Terry Duffy, CME Group Executive Chairman. “We are pleased to announce this new partnership with BMV which furthers our global strategy to offer customers increased access to our products while, at the same time, allowing BMV to use the CME Globex trading network to increase distribution of their products in North America.”

“With Mexico’s standing as the 13th largest economy and one of our country’s most significant trading partners, we are pleased to work with BMV to facilitate global hedging and risk management activity in our respective markets,” said Craig Donohue, CME Group Chief Executive Officer. “In addition to providing CME Group customers with our own highly liquid products in interest rates, equities, foreign exchange, commodities, energy and metals, the order routing agreement announced today will soon broaden efficient access on or through our CME Globex electronic trading platform to financial markets in Brazil, Mexico, South Korea, Dubai and Malaysia.”

“With this operation BMV increases its presence in the international markets. Greater distribution capabilities are a key part of our strategy to attract more investors to Mexico,” said Luis Tellez BMV Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Allowing international investors an easier access into MexDer will improve liquidity and develop the local market. At the same time this agreement will provide Mexican investors with more tools to manage their portfolios.”

The order routing arrangement, which is scheduled to begin in 2011, will give BMV customers access to CME Group’s benchmark derivatives contracts including interest rates, foreign currencies, equity indexes, energy, metals and agricultural commodities. It will also give CME Group customers access to BMV’s interest rate and equity index derivatives.
