FBGC Asia Pacific Unveils New Offering to Clients for Low Latency Trading and DMA
Fortis Bank Global Clearing N.V (FBGC) Asia Pacific have unveiled its new distinct offering to clients for low latency trading and direct market access. As part of an internally managed, state of the art, Global High Speed Network, algo traders, market makers and hedge funds can access multiple exchanges via proximity and collocation data centres from one single point of entry.
FBGC Asia Pacific worked over a twelve month period to devise the network to encompass over twelve different data centres in the Asia Pacific including official collocation and proximity exchange data centres in Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo and Osaka. In Hong Kong considerable expense was invested to produce a “state of the art” data centre to harness a location as close to the exchange as possible. Best of breed providers were selected to provide intercontinental land and subsea cable routes for a fully resilient regional network. By connecting to the Global High Speed Network clients can avoid lengthy and expensive implementations and can utilise shared exchange lines and connectivity both in the region
and on a global scale.
Andrew Bennett, Head of Market Access Asia Pacific said “This highlights Fortis Clearing’s commitment to developing a low latency infrastructure which meets our current and potential client base demands. By linking collocation and proximity sites via multiple best of breed suppliers we have created a product which I believe to be unrivalled both on a regional and global scale”
By combining the offerings in the Asia Pacific region with the rest of the world, FBGC believes that that there are very few contenders that can rival its service offering for trading members and non members on the worlds derivatives and equity exchanges.
