Alex, the online broker division of Rabobank Nederland, has expanded its contract with Tenfore Systems, the provider of global market data feeds and applications, to receive market data from 16 additional European and US exchanges. Tenfore is now Alex’s sole provider of equities, futures and derivatives data for all key European and US markets. In addition to supplying Alex with content sets from its existing portfolio, Tenfore is adding Bourse de Luxembourg and Wiener Börse onto its general data feed as part of this contract. René Frijters, managing director at Alex, says: “By consolidating our market data requirements, we can maximise our budget and ensure we receive a consistent service. We chose to extend our partnership with Tenfore because it has proven to be a provider of fast and resilient data feeds and we have benefited considerably from the company’s flexible attitude and its understanding of our business.”
