Fixnetix, global managed services provider for ultra-low latency market data, trading and risk control, announced today a leading non-EU regulated tier one bank has signed a multi-million pound three year contract for Fixnetix to deliver market data, trading execution and post trade services to the enterprise in Europe.
The advantages of outsourcing market data and trading management are to alleviate complexities with increasing amounts of data and to support operational demands for tighter efficiency.
"The complexity of managing market data has increased with the rising volume of electronic communications," says Hugh Hughes, Chief Executive of Fixnetix. "Our customer chooses Fixnetix for operational efficiency, support, speed and reliability," says Hughes.
Historically, investment banks and financial institutions used multiple data sources which were collocated in a variety of server locations. By selecting one primary data source and vendor to supply market data and trading across all divisions streamlines operational management and compliance. Fixnetix was founded as a market data company in 2006. Over time, the company grew to offer not only raw and normalised market data but trading, colocation, connectivity, hosting and risk control in both hardware and software formats. To be selected by a leading investment bank for market data to the entire enterprise is an enormous leap from just offering market data in a collocated environment.
"We established ourselves as market data and trading vendors when the company was founded seven years ago. Since then, Fixnetix has worked hard to deliver multiple formats of data integrated with seamless trading execution solutions and we are still to this day constantly innovating to ensure the best end product," comments Hughes.
