RTS Realtime Systems Group, a trading technology firm, has teamed up with connectivity provider Fixnetix to provide low-latency access to European equity and derivatives markets.
The service will combine Fixnetix’s data centre networks and market data services with RTS’s exchange liquidity pool gateways, order routing and risk management solutions.
“Fixnetix has set the benchmark for the fastest and most reliable hosted direct market access (HDMA) service for the European equities and derivatives markets,” said Hugh Hughes, Fixnetix CEO, in a statement.
“RTS’ technology will enable our customers to further leverage our combined solutions, including our HDMA offering and RTS’ real-time risk management tools for hedge funds and proprietary trading houses, whilst minimising processing latency. The combined partnership has demonstrated some very impressive performance figures and volume through-put over traditional DMA providers, and our live clients include major prime brokers and some of the biggest high frequency trading firms deployed across Europe.”
