Market data

REDIPlus is integrated with market data from Bloomberg and Reuters.

If a REDIPlus user is running Bloomberg on the same desktop, REDIPlus can take in market data feeds directly from Bloomberg using API/ DDE links. In addition, users can automatically redirect Bloomberg screens to related securities’ information by linking windows from REDIPlus to Bloomberg.

Routing and trading venues

GSET clients using REDIPlus or third-party trading platforms can execute equities both in the firm’s SIGMA X liquidity pool globally, as well as a number of global broker-owned and independent alternative trading systems.

Smart Order Routing is offered for multi-venue routing in Japan. It will soon be introduced in India and Australia. For single-venue execution, GSET’s Smart DMA suite offers DMA-style execution with a number of advanced order types.

Future updates

GSET Asia plans to roll out southeast Asia market access in the near future, and continues to focus on lowering latency and providing co-location in the region.
