KVH to Offer Tokyo Stock Exchange Co-location Service
KVH Co., Ltd., Asia’s leading information delivery platform providing integrated cloud and network solutions, announced November 24 that it will start offering a Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) Co-location Service from January, 2012 in the TSE’s own co-location environment.
The TSE Co-location Service will enable KVH to meet the increasing demands from TSE market participants, including overseas institutional investors, for ultra low latency connectivity to the TSE’s primary trading engine. The TSE Co-location Service is therefore ideal for latency-sensitive investors who wish to undertake high frequency trading on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
This service will cover pre-system activation, access to the TSE Arrownet network, international leased line services, procurement, set-up, testing and implementation of servers, and remote monitoring. All support will be fully bilingual. This will enable overseas institutional investors to outsource full operations of their equipment and have a lower cost of entry into the Tokyo market. It also gives overseas investors the opportunity to promptly implement an ultra low latency network environment for trading without the need to have a local office in Japan. This new service will therefore allow KVH clients to implement a full range of trading strategies including the lowest latency connectivity to the TSE as well as multi-venue strategies that require connectivity to the other Japanese and regional exchanges.
Nicolas Soergel, Executive Vice President of KVH said, “KVH offers ultra low latency connectivity of the highest standards in Japan, with major financial institutions around the world using our ultra low latency network connectivity to Hong Kong, Singapore and Chicago. By drawing on our experience in offering high quality global services, we plan to support further re-invigoration of the trading market in Japan and to enhance TSE’s position as a leading exchange in Asia.”
