Founded in 2012 as a joint venture between Swiss bank Credit Suisse and FX broker FXCM, Euronext FX (formerly FastMatch) provides an electronic currency trading platform primarily for institutional clients such as banks, asset managers and hedge funds. The FX unit of the French-Dutch exchange operator operates an electronic communication network (ECN) for foreign exchange trading and has matching engines in New York, London, Tokyo and Singapore.

FastMatch was acquired by Euronext in 2017 as part of the exchange’s strategy to diversify its top line and expand its proposition to an additional asset class.

Euronext, which operates Europe’s largest pan-European stock exchange, said last month that its second-quarter revenue improved to a record €374.7 million, up 14% from a year earlier.

On the foreign exchange front, Euronext reported average daily volume on its spot foreign exchange market of $23.6 billion for the second quarter of 2022, up 27% from $18.6 billion a year earlier. The spot foreign exchange division generated revenues of €7.3 million, up from €5.7 million in Q2 2021, reflecting higher trading volumes as foreign exchange markets experienced increased volatility during the quarter.

Euronext FX’s franchise disappointed expectations in 2021, which were already high after the exchange posted record trading volumes, more than double the figure it typically generated before the pandemic.
