Market fragmentation, electronic trading across multiple assets classes and the regulatory desire for more trading to migrate from OTC to on-exchange are driving continuous change in market infrastructure. These changes are driving a need to access and get data from multiple venues. Complex internal structures with ever increasing cost pressure making it difficult to try out new markets. There is an easier way with MarketPrizm.
MarketPrizm provides an ultra-low latency market data and order entry infrastructure for market venues, participants, and their customers.
We are the only provider to own its underlying network, PrizmNet. This enables us to be more flexible and responsive. We believe we offer the simplest and most cost effective approach to market data deployment available today.
Our open platform approach enables us to design solutions optimised for a customer’s specific requirements and deliver uncompromising speed, throughput and scale efficiencies. We offer the advantages of either fully managed services and hosted infrastructure or an à la carte approach so customers can take advantage of services as they need them.
These solutions include a blend of MarketPrizm software and IP, certified partners and leading edge software vendors and the customer’s proprietary trading systems. This approach gives us the ability to minimize one-off investment and create the most flexible use of the client’s trading, networking, hosting and hardware operations.
We offer the lowest possible network latency for market data and order routing between market centre co-location and proximity sites. We deliver reliable, consistent performance regardless of order volume and market data flow and we can prove it.
An advantage of both our corporate pedigree and operational model is the accuracy, speed and cost effectiveness with which we can implement changes and deliver projects. This is a result of our global reach, flexible infrastructure and industry experience.
