This development comes as Avelacom becomes an RCB (Rede de Comunicação B3 – B3 Communications Network) provider. 

Through RCB’s connectivity method, Avelacom has gained access to all of B3’s markets, including equities, derivatives, digital assets, and OTC. It also opens the door to the exchange’s post-trade and testing environments. 

The move facilitates low latency access to B3 for all trading participants and extends the exchange’s services to numerous additional global markets. 

Aleksey Larichev, chief executive of Avelacom, said: “Becoming an RCB authorised party allows us to provide more flexible and cost-effective solutions with various capacity options, helping financial firms operate more efficiently.”

It also lowers the barrier of entering B3’s market from abroad by facilitating access to the trading floor and lowering costs for local brokers and trading participants.”
