Turning to Eventus for their trading surveillance and market risk monitoring needs
Eventus CEO Travis Schwab said: “We’re very excited to work with the Small Exchange and to play a vital role in the infrastructure underlying the exchange’s operations when it launches. The team behind the Small Exchange is one of the best in the business, and we couldn’t be happier to partner up in this effort.
