Tuesday, April 12, 2011

JERSEY CITY, New Jersey and LONDON, April 13, 2011 - Knight Capital Group, Inc. (NYSE Euronext: KCG) today announced the
introduction of Knight Match Europe, a non-displayed liquidity venue for the
trading of European equities. Knight Match provides a unique pool of
liquidity to the European marketplace, bringing together retail,
institutional, algorithmic and principal order flow.

Knight Match is a broker crossing system that provides anonymous access
and trade execution opportunities to seek price improvement. Knight Match
Europe's differentiating feature is the presence of retail order flow, both
resting and marketable, within the pool. The combination of orders
originating from institutional desks and buy-side algorithms as well as from
Knight's retail broker-dealer clients and Knight Link Europe's market-making
flow provides increased fulfilment opportunities. Orders are executed
according to a price/equal split protocol, providing a level playing field by
fulfilling at the best price equally split among all matching orders, rather
than simply fulfilling on a first-come, first-serve basis. Another
distinguishing factor of Knight Match Europe is the various order types
accepted in the venue: Limit Orders (LMT), Immediate-or-Cancel (IOC), Peg
Orders (Mid- and Near-Touch).

Knight Match Europe is based on the highly successful model Knight
developed for trading in the U.S. equity markets. Knight Match uses the same
technology standards that support Knight's high volume, low latency trading
infrastructure. Knight can accommodate a wide range of trading architectures
and capacity requirements based on our leading technology, extensive
market-making operation, and direct memberships of more than 20 European
exchanges and multilateral trading facilities (MTFs).

Clients can access Knight Match Europe through the following: Knight
Direct execution management system, Knight's full suite of algorithms, FIX
4.2, Bloomberg, FidessaNet, ULNet, Thompson Reuters, TradeWeb, Trading Screen
and any FIX-compliant EMS/OMS.

The introduction of Knight Match Europe follows the successful November
launch of Knight Link Europe and continues the company's efforts to
provide alternative liquidity products and enhance its capabilities in
pan-European equities.
