10 years of innovation

Turquoise was an idea in 2006. Trading launched in 2008. By 2015, in less than 10 years, customers surpassed €1 trillion a year and selected Turquoise as the preferred partner for electronic block trading. This anniversary provides an opportunity to reflect on the evolution of European Equity Trading.
