S&P Capital IQ Real-Time Solutions, the global provider of innovative market data services, trading and infrastructure solutions, has continued the expansion of its Asia-Pacific offering and has today announced the availability of its cornerstone QuantFEED and QuantLINK solutions to Singapore Exchange (SGX).
S&P Capital IQ Real-Time Solutions is developing the breadth of its services in response to continued client demand for enhanced access to Asia-Pacific and reduced execution times, resulting from the sustained and significant growth across the region. The strategic importance of the geography has not waned, making it essential to provide innovative solutions to all leading global financial institutions.
The extension to SGX of S&P Capital IQ's low latency connectivity and co-location offerings means that its services are now available to buy- and sell-side firms in the region, while global clients can benefit from an optimised data feed and order routing services. This development will ensure ultra-high-speed data and managed trading solutions to improve connectivity performance and reduce trade execution speed.
"Singapore Exchange is the Asian Gateway and premier access point to the region. We therefore welcome the valuable contribution and services that industry participants such as S&P Capital IQ bring to our co-location centre. Their offering will greatly benefit clients by diversifying the methods of access to Singapore and international markets," commented Tinku Gupta, Head of Market Data & Access at SGX.
Stephane Leroy, Vice President, Real-Time Solutions at S&P Capital IQ concluded, "SGX is a vital part of any global trading infrastructure and we see continued expansion in this region as a logical reaction to growing opportunity and client interest in Asia. Locating our solutions within SGX will provide clients with the enhanced market data and lowest latency possible, both of which are required for them to remain ahead of their competitors."
