CAST Issues Open Letter to Top Derivatives Exchanges

Assessment Offer Provides a Path to Prevent Software Problems

 

NEW YORK, NY, May 14 – Today CAST (Euronext: CAS) issued an open letter to the top eight derivatives exchanges in Europe and North America. This comes in the wake of two more major software outages at Chicago Board Options Exchange -- one of the top derivatives exchanges in the world -- resulting in the late opening of stock options and the closure of the exchange for several hours.

Systems errors are often seen as ‘the price of doing business’ by exchanges, but can ultimately cost millions -- for example Knight Capital lost $461m due to a software error. Many at CAST feel this could spiral out of control if the business and technology leaders at the exchanges do not take a proactive stance on the root causes of these failures. In today’s open letter, CAST offers a straightforward path towards assessing the health of exchange software to ensure their systems are secure, resilient, and reliable for investors.

You can find the full text of the open letter published on the CAST blog.
