Trading solutions provider RTS Realtime Systems Group has opened new data centre hubs in Singapore and Mumbai, designed to support low-latency trading on major exchanges across the Asia Pacific region.
The new hubs will serve as the RTS gateway from the Asia Pacific region and will be linked to the firm’s global network, providing proximity hosting and direct market access to some 65 exchanges. Clients inside and outside Asia use the RTS network for low-latency access to multiple asset classes.
The RTS Global Network has hubs in Chicago, Frankfurt, London and New York. RTS clients can be co-located in various exchanges around the world and the firm says it can help improve risk management and decrease operating costs for users who can choose connectivity to as many exchanges as desired.
“Our goal is to lower the time to market for customers, facilitating their connections and enabling trading firms to concentrate on their core business,” said Eric Neo, sales director for Asia Pacific, RTS. “Our offering empowers them to capture compelling opportunities by expanding more quickly into new markets.”
RTS has strengthened its presence in Asia with a series of new hires in recent months. In August, the firm acquired First Futures Software Engineering, a technology solutions provider based in Pune, India, 150km southeast of Mumbai.
