Technology advances, regulatory reform and trading strategy innovations have driven exponential growth in automated trading and produced a more complex and fragmented market, regionally and globally.
Buy-side innovators are extending their trading strategies to new asset classes, execution venues and geographies, while the most competitive players in established markets are leveraging technology to improve trading performance and reduce trading infrastructure costs.
Execution success mandates high performance network, technology and infrastructure solutions optimized to support your unique trading strategies.

As trading markets continue to evolve, sell-side firms are under pressure to innovate and offer differentiated services while improving the performance of their core business.
Competition for position and order flow across a complex array of venues requires high performance networks to initiate and execute trading strategies faster than others. This same high-speed infrastructure must also cost effectively support low-latency, pre-trade risk and compliance checks to mitigate risk.
Sell-side innovators are attracting buy-side customers by offering enhanced algorithmic services, sponsored and direct market access and accelerated market data delivery; and the most forward-looking players are broadening market access and extending their infrastructure to proximity sites â€“ providing a high performance trading environment for their clients.
Core to all of these strategies is having the requisite high performance network and infrastructure.

Regulatory, market and technology changes have dramatically changed the financial markets structure both regionally and globally fueling the rise of new liquidity venues and increasing competition for traditional exchanges.
While growth in trading markets has driven down latencies and resulted in systems upgrades, the speed at which exchanges and execution venues are able to execute transactions remains fundamental to the share of order flow they attract.
The evolving landscape and increased competition for liquidity share has prompted innovators to explore new opportunities. Venues are offering value-added services and improved performance through colocation services, sponsored access and hosted trading services for the buy-side and sell-side.
