Interxion Holding NV, (NYSE: INXN), a leading European provider of carrier-neutral colocation data centre services, today announced an agreement with Quod Financial, a global provider of adaptive trading technology, to locate its servers in Interxion's City of London data centre.
This allows market participants to connect cost effectively to Quod Financial's Smart Order Routing and Connectivity solutions at Interxion.
Quod Financial delivers adaptive electronic trading products that seek liquidity across both lit and dark venues, designed to adapt to dynamic trading conditions in real time.
Interxion's Financial Hub is centrally located between London's leading liquidity venues and hosts an extensive community of liquidity venues, market participants and service providers to the financial services sector. This allows market participants to interconnect with their counterparties within the data centre at low latency and offers the flexibility to be able to quickly and effectively change trading strategies when required.
As Mickaël Rouillère, CTO of Quod Financial, explains, "Interxion's City of London Financial Data Centre is the perfect location for our services. Situated in the heart of the financial markets, it offers the perfect venue for market participants to connect to all major liquidity venues. We were attracted by Interxion's philosophy of enabling its customers to collaborate with complementary service providers. We are pleased to offer Interxion customers connectivity to our smart order routing and algorithmic trading products, confident that Interxion's robust and fully scalable data centre services can fully support our ambitions now and in the future."
Greg McCulloch, MD of Interxion UK, adds, "Our strength lies in providing choice and flexibility through a broad range of connectivity options and access to a wide range of value-added services offered by the financial community located within our data centres. Due to the fragmentation of liquidity in the European markets, smart order routing is a critical trading requirement for the investment community, and we are pleased that our trading participants will be able to benefit from Quod Financial's products and services."
