NEX Markets is NEX Group's electronic markets division. It was previously known as EBS BrokerTec, but the name was changed after ICAP sold off its voice broking unit to Tullett Prebon in 2016 and renamed itself NEX Group. EBS BrokerTec was ICAP's electronic foreign exchange (FX) and fixed income business serving customers from more than 50 countries.

NEX Markets includes several units dedicated to different asset classes. The foreign exchange platforms delivered by NEX Markets are currently EBS Market, EBS Direct and EBS Select. The NEX Markets platform facilitates electronically traded US and European fixed income contracts including US Treasuries, European Government Bonds and European Repo. It is one of the largest FX markets for spot FX, non-deliverable forwards and precious metals.[1]

History

EBS was founded in 1990 by a 13-member bank consortium that included currency dealers UBS, Citigroup, HSBC and JP Morgan Chase. It was sold to ICAP in 2006, in a deal valued as high as $825 million.[2]

ICAP acquired BrokerTec, a fixed income electronic trading platform, in May 2003, and in 2014 combined it with EBS, its FX trading platform, to form EBS BrokerTec Markets.[3] The BrokerTec CLOB business was called BrokerTec Market. In August 2015 Dan Cleaves and Darryl Hooker were appointed to co-head EBS BrokerTec Markets.[4]

The original founders of BrokerTec were seven of the world’s eight biggest fixed-income dealers: Citigroup, Credit Suisse First Boston, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley. BrokerTec launched its commercial operations in June 2000 and over the years it expanded its product base to offer trading in more than 20 fixed income products, both cash and repo.

In May 2003, BrokerTec was acquired by ICAP Plc. In September 2003, BrokerTec and ICAP launched the first of its combined voice and electronic liquidity pools offering comprehensive fixed income interdealer brokerage.[5]

In January of 2017, BrokerTec Europe agreed to acquire a controlling majority stake in e-MID SIM SpA “e-MID”, the first Italian electronic central limit order book platform for interbank deposits and overnight indexed swaps.[6]

NEX Group chose Nasdaq's Smarts market surveillance technology to provide the technology to monitor its FX and fixed income trading venue EBS BrokerTec for fraud and market abuse.[7]
