IPC Systems, Inc., a leading provider of trading communications solutions to the world’s top financial services firms and global enterprises, has extended its worldwide financial markets network infrastructure to now include connectivity to the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE).
IPC has expanded its Pan-Asian Network to now include connectivity to PSE, which is the next step in IPC’s sustained program of network enhancement and connectivity investments across the Asia Pacific region.
