Bolsa de Valores de Lima Selects the SunGard Global Network for Market Data Distribution
April 16, 2012 — Lima, Peru
Bolsa de Valores de Lima S.A. (BVL), the Peruvian stock exchange, has selected the SunGard Global Network (SGN) as a distribution channel for its data.
Peru is expected to be Latin America’s fastest growing economy in 2012, according to its Economy and Finance Minister. U.S. Department of State figures show that its economic growth averaged 7.0% a year for the 7 years up to 2010, due in large part to market-oriented economic reforms and privatization, as well as high international prices for the country’s largest commodity exports.
SGN will help BVL reach a broad international audience by delivering its real-time market data and multi-asset class historical data and analytics to asset managers and brokers worldwide. Those firms will also be able to route orders to the exchange via SGN, contributing to activity on BVL.
Francis Stenning, chief executive officer of the Bolsa de Valores de Lima, said, “Joining the SunGard Global Network will help Bolsa de Valores de Lima increase our visibility internationally and create new trading opportunities for our members.”
Philippe Carré, global head of connectivity of SunGard’s capital markets business, said, “We are seeing increased demand for direct connectivity to Latin America as the debt crisis drives international investors to seek alternatives to western Europe and US markets. The SunGard Global Network makes it easy to route orders and access real-time, high quality data, helping our customers operate more efficiently and make more informed trading decisions.” About the SunGard Global Network (SGN)
