In a press release yesterday, Colt stated that its financial extranet, Colt PrizmNet, has expanded its database, which currently lists 75 service providers. The pool now includes three major American brokerage companies that are involved in online equity trading. The firms in question have yet to be named. Other service companies which have joined during the past year are Cappitech, Applied Blockchain, Succession Systems, and AK Investment.
Colt claims that the additional brokers joining this pool of providers means increased ease in fixing issues through execution gateways in management, order routing, and other interactions. Moreover, it will make it easier for brokers to access liquidity lending centres, as well as to collaborate and connect with other online trading firms.
