BT Group has announced customers using its Radianz Cloud service can now access the equities and derivatives markets of the Japanese Exchange Group (JPX).
JPX is the latest Asian exchange to join BT’s Radianz Cloud, which already has the Australian Securities Exchange, Bursa Malaysia and the Singapore Exchange on the network.
Mitsuo Miwa, director of market business development at JPX, said the Exchange decided to work with BT because of its 15-year history.
He said: “Global investors have high hopes for the Japanese economy and for us, this creates an opportunity for growth. JPX’s ambition is to become the most preferred exchange in Asia and one of the most competitive in the world.
“We’ve chosen to work with BT because of its proven experience and creative use of technology. We’ve been impressed by its track record in helping exchanges extend their global reach and we look forward to leveraging this to deliver growth.”
Tom Regent, president, global banking & financial markets at BT Global Services, said: “Asia Pacific is a key part of our Radianz Cloud community and we already have more than 3,000 members in the region.
“With JPX on board, we have the infrastructure in place to help grow trading activity and investment into and out of Japan. This will make it easier for our community to do business in a way that can lead to a more vibrant market, boosting Japan’s standing as a global financial hub.”
