NEW YORK and HAMILTON, Bermuda, April 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:NDAQ) and the Bermuda Stock Exchange (BSX) have launched NASDAQ OMX's X-stream trading platform providing BSX with world-class trading technology and strengthening BSX's dedication to the development of Bermuda's domestic market, fueling capital to the country's small and medium businesses as well as BSX's leadership position in insurance related trading activity.

"The Bermuda Stock Exchange has always been focused on investing in technology that ensures that our trading platform is among the most advanced in the world and that further extends our leadership over other competing exchanges," said Greg Wojciechowski, President and CEO of Bermuda Stock Exchange.
