Trading solutions provider RTS Realtime Systems Group is offering high-speed access via a unified infrastructure to all trading platforms of the London Stock Exchange (LSE) Group, including the LSE itself, Borsa Italiana and the European Derivatives Exchange (EDX).
The link also includes Norwegian exchange Oslo Börs’s equity market, which will start using LSE’s TradElect trading platform in February 2010.
RTS clients can now access the LSE Group’s markets in a hosted environment through the RTS London primary and secondary data centres.
According to RTS, the new offering benefits a wide range of market participants including brokers, algorithmic traders and market makers.
“Through our dedicated infrastructure, we are able to save clients significant time and expense, allowing them to enjoy best-in-class technology while focusing their resources on refining and executing their trading strategies, as well as serving their client needs,” said Mirjana Zuro, managing director of RTS United Kingdom, in a statement.
RTS has been accredited as a London Stock Exchange vendor access network provider and is the process of becoming an approved service provider for Borsa Italiana.
The vendor provides access to more than 100 equities, futures, fixed income and options trading venues globally. It also provides hosting services for low-latency access to more than 60 venues via its global data centre hubs.
