Trading technology provider RTS Realtime Systems Group has opened an office in Hong Kong, as part of its ongoing expansion in the Asia-Pacific region.
The new office offers sales and solutions support to Hong Kong-based customers and serves as a gateway to trading communities in mainland China, Taiwan, Japan and Korea.
With its regional headquarters in Singapore, RTS has been growing its presence and services to clients in the region. The firm's staff has been tripled and local development, quality assurance and marketing teams have been established.
The firm has also hired Alec Chan as sales director covering north Asia from the new Hong Kong office; his task is to promote and service RTS' increased activities in commodities trading and established financial markets solutions in the region.
RTS executive board member Alexander Lamb said, “The tremendous interest in the RTS low-latency algorithmic trading solutions, along with our ability to connect firms to more than 130 equity, futures and options exchanges globally, has really fuelled our growth in the region.”
RTS is currently the main supplier of trading technology for the Chinese University of Hong Kong, which opened a trading laboratory at its campus to equip students with ”real-world' trading experience,' in November 2010.
