Nomura has launched a low latency trading service that taps networking technology from Colt to offer clients co-located software hosting connectivity to major exchanges and MTFs in Europe.
Nomura's technology and product team has designed the low latency network using Colt's infrastructure. A dedicated fibre optic network has been rolled out in three major European cities.
The bank's co-location service is supported by a specialist infrastructure team, providing clients with a dedicated end-to-end service. The platform also delivers high level security and seamless integration with Nomura's Prime Services products.
Jeff Zorek, global co-head, prime product management, Nomura, says: "The fastest possible market data and the fastest possible trading connections are critical for the low latency trading community. At Nomura, we have combined leading networking and trading expertise with significant investments to achieve these goals."
Earlier this week fintech vendor Caplin revealed that Nomura has gone live on its single-dealer trading platform, Xaqua. The bank deployed Xaqua to launch its FX trading workstation - following the acquisition of Lehman Brothers' operations in Asia and its investment banking and equities businesses in Emea.
