The RealTick platform now provides Brazilian futures and options data and execution capabilities from Brazil's BM&FBovespa, the nation's largest exchange, ConvergEx announced.

With this update, ConvergEx said that RealTick now provides its broker-dealer and institutional clients with enhanced price discovery and access to liquidity from one of the hottest international markets. The firm added that RealTick clients will also now be able to trade Brazilian derivatives and equities either locally or through the unit's network of global broker-dealers.

"Throughout 2011, RealTick is continuing a series of strategic moves that will add functionality, global data and an even broader range of asset classes and geographies," ConvergEx RealTick Chief Executive Stuart Breslow said in a statement. "The move to expand its offerings to include Brazilian derivatives is a critical element in that planned expansion."
