Thinking Global - Luc Fortin, Montréal Exchange

In this video from JLN's Industry Leader Series, Montréal Exchange President and CEO Luc Fortin talks about the exchange’s extended hours, potentially partnering with a firm in Asia to spread the word, and the relaunch of a key interest rate derivative.


Montréal Exchange’s CEO Focused on Structural Adjustments

“The world is looking to trade more and more Canada and the fact that we’re only open during our own time zone is a bit prohibitive for some of the international clients.”

Last year, Montréal Exchange launched single stock futures and it turned out to be its best product launch in a decade based on rapidly growing open interest. The exchange also revamped its 5-year bond contract in order to make sure all points on the curve are accessible. With those changes in place, 2017’s goals center around structural change.
