ACY Capital continues its expansion
ACY Capital has been focused on expanding its product this year. In March, Finance Magnates reported that the firm had integrated its service suite with Alibaba’s newly launched data centre in Indonesia.
The new Asian data centre offers ACY Capital a full suite of services, providing the flexibility to build its entire IT infrastructure for business on Alibaba Cloud and run mission-critical and core applications on it. Specifically, the move aimed to enhance the ASIC-regulated firm’s cloud-based trading engine, as well as helping it grow its retail and institutional client base within Indonesia.
