TMX Atrium, provider of smarter infrastructure solutions for the financial community, today announced new low latency connectivity into Moscow from Stockholm. The new connectivity path provides access to key data centres in Moscow to enable participants to trade the rapidly growing Russian market.
TMX Atrium’s access point at M1 Moscow, increasingly recognised as an important hub for the financial community, gives financial services participants a competitive advantage when trading Russian securities. From M1 in Moscow, TMX Atrium has connectivity back to its point of presence (POP) in Stockholm using a market leading low latency path of 17.7ms.
TMX Atrium has started to connect other Moscow data centre locations back to its Moscow POP offering clients across Moscow the ability to access the TMX Atrium community. Clients already within the TMX Atrium community can immediately benefit from access to venues and clients actively connected to the Moscow market. Equally Moscow-based venues and participants can access TMX Atrium’s entire trading community of multiple venues, brokers, ISVs engaged in trading the global markets.
“Investment in the TMX Atrium platform allows us to connect multiple compatible trading participants wherever they are based. With the move of the Russian securities markets to T+3 settlement later this year, we will undoubtedly see additional liquidity and a continuing need for connectivity into Russia”, said Emmanuel Carjat, Managing Director of TMX Atrium.
“With the addition of Moscow, our network now has POPs located at major financial liquidity centres in 12 countries across North America and Europe”, Emmanuel Carjat, added.
