Earlier this month, Thomson Reuters unveiled the launch of its market data services suite at the SGX co-location data center in an attempt to undercut the cost of ownership for local financial firms. The group integrated with the SGX and consequently with several new new markets and trading venues in the region given the propensity for many smaller domestic firms to suffer from small infrastructure footprints.
Marex Financial Limited is a broker of financial instruments in the commodities sector and energy markets that provides both voice and electronic trading and clearing services. The international group also brokers financial futures, equities, fixed income products and foreign exchange (FX), in addition to its core commodity markets offering.
