Thomson Reuters has teamed up with technology firm Horizon Software to provide a derivatives trading platform in China.

Horizon Software describes the platform as a “one-stop-shop” for trading derivatives in China, allowing securities houses in China to trade ETF options locally and globally.

The platform is connected to all exchanges in China for quantitative trading to the Chinese market.

Hua He, head of market development financial and risk at Thomson Reuters in China said the two firms want to deliver a “superior derivative trading experience for all participants in the Chinese markets.”

Asia-Pacific sales director at Horizon Software, Clement Pelletier, added that the platform will offer accurate market data with low-latency technology.

Horizon Software claims to be the first vendor to launch trading software in China, back in 2012, and following a growth in the global ETF market has seen an increasing demand for its trading system, Delta One.
