The Nasdaq Certified Partners Program
The Nasdaq Certified Partners Program was created to inform market participants of the Nasdaq service bureaus that provide the highest levels of functionality, access and timely implementation of enhancements for Nasdaq markets. This program was designed to help customers make informed choices about which service bureau is the right solution for their business. The Certified Partners Program is an evaluation program for which Nasdaq service bureaus must apply.
In order for the Certified Partners Program to benefit trading firms on a long-term basis, service bureaus will need to maintain their certification levels when Nasdaq implements significant enhancements. Nasdaq reviews our Partners' software frequently and as required by major initiatives.
Platinum Partners provide the highest level of Nasdaq market functionality to their customers. They ensure that their trading products provide access to Nasdaq and Nasdaq BX (BX) order types and routing strategies, access to the NASDAQ Opening and Closing Crosses, as well as many other market features. In addition, Platinum firms implement enhancements within 30 days of changes to a Nasdaq system.
