ULLINK, leading provider of global electronic trading solutions, is pleased to announce that EQUINET Securities AG has signed up for its UL BRIDGE and UL NET solutions.
EQUINET Securities AG has chosen to combine both solutions to build a connectivity architecture answering growing business needs. EQUINET uses the UL BRIDGE to connect directly to a German exchange, enabling the company to offer low-latency DMA services to its customers. EQUINET has also decided to join the UL NET community (ULLINK's order routing network), being able to send and receive order flow from the other members of this service.
"We chose ULLINK as they can provide us with the complete solution we need for a service-oriented architecture that significantly improves our offer. The global network will increase EQUINET's reach across the world by facilitating the access to our services to potential customers," says Rüdiger Wolf, Member of the Board at EQUINET. "Offering low-latency DMA to our customers is a competitive advantage for us. In addition, with its library of plugins, the platform offers real modularity as we can add new destinations effortlessly in an unrivalled timeframe. This architecture will easily adapt to our evolving business needs."
ULLINK and ULLINK.NET are two separate entities. ULLINK has developed a comprehensive range of electronic trading solutions, including connectivity and order routing, order management, algorithmic trading, best execution and trading risk management. The UL NET is a FIX hub using the same technology.
"We are pleased to welcome a customer that has chosen our one-process, low-latency market gateway offer for their DMA business," says Laurent Useldinger, CEO of Ullink. "Ullink has now developed over 15 different market gateways in various asset classes embedded into the UL BRIDGE platform, taking advantage of its modularity. This means our clients can leverage their ULLINK architecture to access exchanges directly, reducing overheads and latency."
