RTS Realtime Systems Group (RTS), a leading global trading solutions provider, today announced it has launched proximity hosting and low-latency connectivity services in Japan by leveraging KVH Co. Ltd., Asia's leading information delivery platform headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.

These services, available from the new RTS Tokyo data center in the KVH facility, will enable the firm's global and local clients to achieve ultra-low latency access to Japan's major stock, futures and options exchanges.

RTS chose KVH for its ultra-low latency networks, robust data centers, and thorough knowledge of the Japanese market. KVH matched RTS' needs for high-performance and low-latency connectivity services in Tokyo to meet the growing demand among financial market players outside of Asia for access to the Japanese markets. Through KVH's services, RTS ' newly established presence in Japan will offer global high-speed acc ess to a full ecosystem of capital market participants including the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE), Osaka Stock Exchange (OSE), Tokyo Commodity Exchange (TOCOM) and all major brokers.

In 2013, significant changes are expected among the major Japanese exchanges, including advancements in next generation trading platforms and the development of Japan Exchange Group (JPX, the recent merger between TSE and OSE), generating a growing international interest in this market. This has led to an increasing need among traders for innovative service providers that enable optimal trading with Japan's exchanges. As both RTS and KVH continue to strengthen their offerings in Japan and expand throughout Asia, they plan to collaboratively deliver premium trading solutions for traders wanting to capitalize on Japan's evolving financial market.

RTS CEO Steffen Gemuenden, who recently relocated from Chicago to Singapore, said: "We are delighted to partner with KVH on this important expansion in Japan as part of our dedicated growth efforts in Asia. As the premier provider of the lowest latency network in Japan, KVH is enabling us to operate a robust data center that meets our clients' growing demand by featuring a full range of hosting services, ultra-low latency access to liquidity pools of the key Japanese markets and superb international arbitrage opportunities."

Dr. Zhongmin Guo, Executive Vice President, Business Development Division of KVH, said: "We are excited to be entering this partnership with RTS as the firm expands into Japan, strengthening its presence across Asia and globally. Combining our extensive experience in serving the financial services market in Asia with leading-edge data centers and low-latency network solutions, with RTS' t rusted trading solutions, KVH is confident that traders across the world will be receiving connectivity and hosting solutions of the highest caliber through these new offerings."
