Instinet Europe Set to Begin Trading on BATS Europe

Agency brokerage Instinet Europe has successfully completed conformance testing on the BATS Europe MTF. As a result, Instinet Europe’s institutional clients will be able to have immediate access to the multilateral trading facility (MTF) from its anticipated 31 October launch. “Successfully connecting to BATS Europe is a significant milestone in the continued development of our execution and smart order routing capabilities,” said Richard Balarkas, CEO of Instinet Europe. “From the moment BATS Europe goes live, Instinet’s global client base will be able to access it via sales traders, DMA or through our Instinet Execution Experts algorithms.”
