BT Radianz, a provider of financial services connectivity, is to connect the LSE to its international bourse network. The exchange will use BT Radianz’s shared market infrastructure to extend its market data distribution and electronic trading capabilities.
The deal allows the LSE to offer connectivity to Infolect, its market data and trading services, to clients globally via the BT Radianz shared market infrastructure. “BT Radianz has built a reputation for facilitating access to exchanges through efficient and reliable connectivity,” says Wendy Morgan, head of real-time data, LSE. “We will work closely with the team to promote this service globally,” she adds.
This deal has been driven by client demand. “Our customers across the globe are demanding lower latency and direct access to market data sources,” says David Stopforth, head of European sales, BT Radianz. “BT Radianz provides a global distribution platform for all sources of market data including over 40 exchanges worldwide,” he adds.
“Bringing the LSE onto the BT Radianz Shared Market Infrastructure is an excellent example of how the trading environment has increasingly become global and how connectivity between the exchange and its clients, wherever
they are internationally, is crucial,” says Stopforth.
