Hedge Funds Allowed Onto MTS

Filed under: 2015, etrading — holky @ 9:00 pm

finextra says MTS is set to give hedge funds the green light to trade on its electronic markets; as the supervisory board now supports the view that it is “desirable to liberalise the access of the market to third parties as a way to enhance the liquidity” ….

The devil’s in the detail so don’t panic just yet though … further work is needed to address concerns and to “promote a consensual implementation” – MTS saying its management board will put together practical proposals, after consultation with its third party access committee, that will be discussed at the next supervisory board meeting.



  1. Yep, still a long way to go on this…..

  2. Gianluca Garbi (MTS chairman) told Bloomberg yesterday (16/5): “Following the mandate received by the supervisory board, we are working on a plan. I’ll call a meeting of the management board within the next two weeks proposing that the question of hedge fund access be put on the agenda.”

  3. A mandate? Hmmmm, I think Signor Garbi should move into politics. 😉
