SIX Swiss Exchange has added an access point service in London to improve connectivity and reduce the cost of connection for its UK-based clients.
Existing participants in the UK can therefore reduce connectivity costs by up to 25 percent and benefit from a latency improved by 15 percent on average compared to conventional connectivity implementations. reduce complexity according to their needs and, from a single location, benefit from potential economies of scale and diversity both campuses offer.
"We have consistently made a focus on customers over the last few years, which has allowed us to attract liquidity and strengthen our position as the independent investment network of choice," says Chris Landis, the head of operations at SIX. "Today represents the next milestone in our continuous pursuit to increase our client centricity. With our new access points we are excited to offer our existing and potential new trading participants a cost-efficient option to connect to our growing market."
The new access point service will use two points of presence located in the data centers of Equinix and Interxion, two partners of SIX Swiss Exchange.
"Having the additional connectivity option in our London facility provides market participants within our London Slough campus to directly access multiple SIX Swiss Exchange trading segments and interconnect with over 200 execution venues, trading participants, market data vendors and technology service providers already deployed within our multi-asset class electronic trading ecosystem," says Stuart Turnham, director of enterprise and financial services at Equinix EMEA.
