EEX Group has successfully launched its new trade registration platform - Touchpoint - which will further facilitate the registration of OTC trades for all EEX markets. For the first time ever, Touchpoint brings together all EEX asset classes, (Power, Natural Gas, Emissions, Dry Freight and Agriculturals), in a single, intuitive and easy to use platform. The new, free to use service, which is available via both direct front end and API incorporates a comprehensive range of trade registration, risk management and analytics functions, allowing EEX customers to better control all parts of their OTC trade workflow.
Touchpoint has been specifically designed to cater to a broad range of different users and includes a host of applications and functions which enable greater trading efficiencies for the broking, clearing and trading communities. Within the feature rich system, brokers will benefit from a more comprehensive and efficient deal submission process which incorporates the ability to enter deals arranged on an OTC basis for submission to EEX on behalf of clients and access live EEX market information. Clearing members can set client limits and manage their accounts more effectively via the pre trade risk management software, while traders can manage their portfolio more efficiently by accessing a range of data and analytics tools.
Speaking at the launch of Touchpoint, Peter Reitz, EEX Chief Executive Officer, comments: “Here at EEX Group, we believe in building markets together and that of course extends to all parts of the market, including off exchange business. In launching Touchpoint, EEX Group has taken a major step forward in streamlining the trade registration process and I am excited to see how the functionality develops over the coming months and years.”
Reitz continues “I am incredibly proud of EEX Group Touchpoint and am convinced that with this platform, we have a state-of-the-art solution which will undoubtedly make OTC trading much easier and more efficient for traders, brokers and clearing members”.
Also speaking at the launch of Touchpoint, Steffen Koehler, EEX Chief Operating Officer comments; “It’s no secret that currently the market is experiencing intense times, so I’m particularly happy that through Touchpoint we are able to alleviate some of the stresses that our customers are facing by providing a complimentary and innovative solution for their OTC needs”, he concludes.
Touchpoint will be operated by a dedicated service team in Singapore ensuring users can access support on a 16/5 basis. For more information on Touchpoint or to sign up to the platform, please email
