The key strength of the Radianz Cloud lies not only in the sheer reach the network provides its members-literally thousands of financial service providers including brokers, exchanges, market data sources, analytics and clearing firms-but also its range of offered services. Consolidating external market connectivity through a single gateway, Radianz Cloud offers secure access to trading partners and services across all asset classes, incorporating post-trade, exchanges, order execution, brokerage firms, IP voice channels, and FX trading capabilities.

During the past 18 months, BT has significantly broadened the scope of the Radianz Cloud, adding more than 1,840 connections to services and applications offered by cloud community members, with over 160 new applications made available to end-users. The platform offers a complete solution to its customers' networking requirements, covering pre-trade (BT Netrix), trade (BT Radianz) and post-trade (BT SettleNet) processes. Functionality of the platform was extended during the past year through the addition of BT Netrix HiTouch-a cloud-integrated touchscreen trading solution for improved collaboration-as a result of customer demand and market opportunity. BT also added One Voice-video, a conferencing service that combines voice, mobile and data platforms.

Earlier this year, BT announced a new partnership with the Japan Exchange Group to provide international access to the exchange's equities and derivatives markets, giving Radianz Cloud members access to brokers and market data as both firms seek to capitalize on growth opportunities across APAC and the Far East.

Originally acquired from Reuters in 2005, Radianz Cloud celebrated its 15th anniversary in July by launching a new project designed to accelerate financial technology innovation by bringing fintech startups on to the network. Allowing smaller technology firms access to Radianz means new technologies will have faster and wider market reach to the network's community of brokers, institutions, exchanges and clearing and settlement houses.
