Helping Capital Market Participants Find New Revenue Opportunities
Deregulation of European markets and the rise of machine-to-machine (black-box) trading have driven demand for proximity hosting since 2007.
Capital market participants need to reduce the latency of their trading infrastructures in order to remain competitive and reduce their operational risk. At the same time, they need to be able to embrace the opportunities of high-performance computing and big data, realise the benefits of cloud technology and ensure compliance with standards for security and business continuity – all without over-investing.
Our data centres provide you to with the solution to these challenges. You’ll find a community of 200+ capital market participants, industry service providers, financial networks and the following liquidity venues hosted within our data centres:
