Jiway extends coverage to Swiss market


JIWAY EXTENDS COVERAGE TO SWISS MARKET On Monday, 20 May 2002, Jiway extended its coverage to include the Swiss market and executed its first transaction in a Swiss stock. With this latest addition, Jiway now provides a single point of access for trading into nine markets: US: NYSE, NASDAQ, UK: SETS & SEAQ, Sweden, Germany, France, Italy, Holland and Switzerland. By adding the Swiss market and increasing the range of stocks available on Jiway, we have continued to strengthen our position as the market’s most cost efficient one-stop shop for cross-border equity trading, says Martin Coen, General Manager, Jiway. Jiway was restructured in October 2001 in order to adjust its cost base to a level more appropriate to the current retail market conditions and became a wholly owned subsidiary of OM. Since then OM has helped Jiway expand its service and more than double the membership, from 13 to 28 trading parties in eight countries across Europe. In today's cost-focused market, Jiway brings great value to brokers and banks by providing a single access point for cross-border trading, clearing and safekeeping. With minimal investment, Jiway allows brokers and banks to offer their customers immediate access to the prices and liquidity on 9 foreign exchanges at an extremely competitive price and without the back-office overheads usually associated with foreign stock trading. Access to Jiway is made easy and cost efficient through Jiway Link - a new web-based trading tool. Jiway Link enables members to simply plug in and trade the world’s major equity markets without having to face costly connection fees and system configuration issues.
