It was set up to take advantage of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID), which removes the "concentration rule" across Europe, which states that trades should go through local exchanges.

This will allow us to add value to the market data we collect and offer further client services, such as detailed analysis of transactions and a better understanding of price improvement and performance."
