The new partnership ensures the availability of the TT platform to the Australian derivatives market within the Australian Liquidity Centre (ALC), which is the Australia’s only data centre dedicated to the financial markets community. The platform already serves a wide variety of users including proprietary traders, brokers, money managers, CTAs, hedge funds, and commercial hedgers and risk managers.
Innovative means to a consolidated access
The users of TT will have access to the new platform through ASX’s point-to-point fibre network – ASX Net. This allows customers to consolidate their access to ASX and third party services such as the TT platform across the same high availability infrastructure.
Commenting in the press release, David Raper, Executive General Manager of Trading Services at ASX, said: “We welcome Trading Technologies into the ALC. The ALC has become the heart of Australia’s financial markets community and is home to Australia’s most established and liquid derivatives products. The launch of TT’s new platform within the ALC will provide the community with an innovative means to access these derivatives products. ASX has a long and trusted relationship with TT. We are proud to have been selected as a critical partner for their ambitions in Australia and New Zealand.”
