Eurex EnLight Anonymous Negotiation

Eurex provides the possibility to negotiate deals and trade via Eurex EnLight without disclosing the identities of the requester and respondents. The Eurex EnLight Anonymous Negotiation offers a new type of negotiation for requesters who are sensitive to inventory tracking or simply wish to remain anonymous. Anonymous Negotiation is not a fixed setting, requesters can opt for anonymity on a case by case basis.

Eurex EnLight SMART RfQ

Eurex EnLight SMART Request for Quote (RfQ) allows customers to use exchange data to assist brokers and traders in targeting those trading participants who are most likely to have an interest in a specific RfQ. This increases the probability of tighter spreads and better pricing outcomes for the end-client or risk desk.

Eurex EnLight participants who want to be included as potential Eurex EnLight SMART respondents need to be assigned by their Admin user in the Admin GUI to the Eurex EnLight SMART Respondent Assignment list. Respondents who want to be included in these calculations have to sign up and consent to the use of their data.
