Through Interxion’s London data center, the TT platform provides the closest proximity and lowest-latency access to the markets in which clients execute their trading strategies, including the London Metal Exchange (LME), ICE Futures Europe, Euronext and the Dubai Gold and Commodities Exchange (DGCX).
Interxion’s financial hub facility has built up a critical mass of capital market participants, because it provides the type of environment that enhances the benefits delivered to firms leveraging its services. In addition, the access to a large number of ecosystem partners lowers the user’s overall market access cost.
Andrew Woodward, Director of Berkeley Futures Ltd, commented: “We look forward to offering our clients colocation at LME and connectivity to DGCX on the TT platform. With TT’s new connectivity and execution services in London, we expect our clients will achieve even lower latency and higher levels of performance from trading on the world’s major exchanges through TT. This will be particularly beneficial to our arb and algo traders.’’
Mike Mayhew, CIO of TT,added: “TT users will see a significant performance improvement when accessing regional markets through the London environment, and ecosystem partners can take advantage of lower-cost access to the TT platform. The addition of the London data center is critical to our long-term resilience and performance objectives for the TT platform.”
