CQG, a global provider of high-performance trade routing, reliable market data, and advanced technical analysis, has relocated its servers into the HKEX data center in Tseung Kwan Industrial Estate.
The relocation will improve market data latency and trade execution performance.
The HKEX facility enables CQG to connect to the HKEX HSN network for market data and order routing in order to offer the most reliable, high-performance exchange connectivity. CQG previously co-located with China Telecom in Chai Wan. The move to HKEX simplifies the connectivity to the exchange for market participants. HKEX offers ASP connectivity from their co-location facility, which is CQG’s preferred connectivity model for exchange access.
“The HKEX co-location allows us to provide a superior trading experience to our users, including higher performance and faster execution,” said Leighton Andrew, Managing Director - Asia Pacific & Japan at CQG.
“We are pleased CQG has decided to join us in our data centre,” said Jonathan Leung, HKEX’s Head of Hosting Services. “Our Hosting Services provide access to our core systems as well as an array of information, technology and network service providers in a secure ecosystem environment.”
The migration to HKEX was completed on March 26, 2016.
