MillenniumIT, the provider of ultra-low latency, flexible and scalable capital markets solutions, and part of London Stock Exchange Group, today announces that Bolsa de Valores de Lima (BVL), the Peruvian stock exchange has gone live with MillenniumIT’s technology solution.

The exchange has replaced its legacy trading technology infrastructure with MillenniumIT’s multi-asset trading platform (Millennium Exchange™) and Smart Order Router (Millennium SOR™) for equities and fixed income trading and connectivity throughout the MILA region. Both products are underpinned by MillenniumIT’s next generation integration platform, Millennium Advanced Platform (MAP™), supporting the exchange’s entire trading operation and ensuring it meets the market’s evolving regulatory requirements.

The complete solution has been adapted to meet the unique connectivity and language requirements of the market in Peru and the extended MILA region of Mexico, Chile and Colombia, including a fully integrated Trader Workstation in Spanish. The deployment is MillenniumIT’s first live implementation in South America.
