QuantHouse, the leading provider of next generation trading solutions, has extended its QuantLink proprietary fibre optic network into the Zurich-based SIX Swiss Exchange.
The service allows buy- and sell-side firms located in Switzerland, access to the low-latency offering, while global clients will benefit from a more optimised data feed and order routing service.
QuantLINK, the firm's high performance global trading infrastructure service, interconnects the cores of multiple exchanges with proximity hosting at the source, ensuring clients can operate trading systems in close proximity to the exchange matching engine, while addressing the demand to reduce connectivity costs and latency. The solution can complement or replace existing legacy infrastructures.
Pierre Feligioni, General Manager and Co-Founder of QuantHouse, commented: "Connecting with the SIX Swiss Exchange has been an important step for QuantHouse in offsetting market fragmentation globally. With Zurich becoming the company's sixteenth 'Point of Presence' we have succeeded in broadening our offering, responding to demand, providing additional co-location services and optimising trading performance of their algorithms."
Chris Landis, Head Operations at SIX Swiss Exchange, added: "We are very excited to have QuantHouse available to our clients using our proximity hosting services. This will provide our customers with an even wider choice of excellent service providers to access our high-performance trading platform and market data."
Stephane Leroy, Head of Global Sales & Marketing at QuantHouse, concluded: "We understand that our clients need to receive market data and be able to route orders before their competition, which is why QuantHouse has specifically designed our proximity hosting services to be located within the exchanges, thereby providing clients with the high availability and performance they require. Our Research & Development team works consistently to provide cutting-edge solutions wherever there is industry demand."
