UK-based low-latency data and trading infrastructure provider Fixnetix and datacenter provider Equinix have signed a global partnership agreement to "promote and extend" the availability of Fixnetix's datafeeds within Equinix's global financial services ecosystem.
The first stage of the agreement will see Fixnetix establish points of presence in Equinix's International Business Exchange datacenters in Tokyo (TY3), Sydney (SY2), Hong Kong (HK1) and Singapore (SG1) to meet demand from European and American market participants interested in the Asia-Pacific markets.
"Fixnetix is pleased to strategically align with Equinix in Asia. Our trading customers are now able to access market data, get trading access, as well as utilize our FPGA pre-trade risk engine... for risk control worldwide," says Fixnetix chief executive Hugh Hughes in a statement.
