Americas Trading Group said it selected NYSE Technologies to provide the backbone for its high-performance execution platform.

The firm's platform manages local and cross border order flow to the different exchanges and brokers in Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Colombia, Peru and Argentina. Clients in those markets can also route orders to the various destinations around the world reached by NYSE Technologies’ SFTI global network. NYSE Technologies is the technology subsidiary of NYSE Euronext.

“ATG’s clients will benefit from an array of services that includes low latency network connectivity to global markets, locally developed algorithms and trading screens, monitoring tools, and advanced technical and business intelligence reports, says Fernando Cohen, chief executive for ATG “With the growing importance of Latin America in the global financial markets, ATG sees this initiative with NYSE Technologies as a ground-breaking opportunity to reach a community of investors never explored before, allowing for local players to increase their access to international markets.”
