High Frequency Trading has transformed the markets into ultra-fast, high-volume marketplaces. If you don’t have the development and system resources required to keep up, your bottom-line will be impacted.

Access to Liquidity

Your client applications need to work with various gateways and it can be time consuming and resource intensive to implement access to each trading venue and support each of them. On top of this, Exchange Driven Changes (EDC) need to be planned.

Increasing Market Share

The need to increase market share in a particular market such as an asset type or to expand globally often requires access to trading venues in new geographical regions.


The current environment has seen increases in regulatory requirements. To prevent these distractions from your trading activities, you need to free up the capacity to efficiently deal with changes as they occur.


Performance & Scalability

The Market Access Gateway solution provides high speed, low latency messaging on commodity hardware, with deployment specific fine-tuning to maximize performance and throughput.
