Lucera Financial Infrastructures is making its infrastructure available to power electronic trading by financial institutions and high-frequency trading (HFT) firms.
Lucera’s platform enables customers to accelerate time-to-market, high speed connections to marketplaces and exchanges, and reduce operational and regulatory risk while eliminating the capital expense of building and operating a real-time network of customer and exchange connectivity.
“High frequency trading firms, exchanges, banks and hedge funds can reap huge savings and achieve significant improvements in performance by operating their infrastructure on Lucera,” says Jacob Loveless, CEO of Lucera. “Our customers are able to reach new levels of performance by freeing themselves from the time and capital constraints of internal legacy infrastructure. By using Lucera, clients will be able to connect to more customers and liquidity destinations with much better performance at significantly lower cost.”
Lucera’s customers can procure, test, manage, implement and monitor trading infrastructure without expending capital on network technology. Lucera’s on-demand custom infrastructure enables users to adjust the level of dedicated resources at any time at any of three collocated data centres. Month-to-month pricing allows customers to deploy or test new components and strategies without long-term contracts or commitments.
"Lucera was created to help customers address today’s expensive, complex and evolving infrastructure needs. Lucera’s platform currently operates out of New York, London and Chicago, enabling our customers to connect to multiple trading destinations fast, securely, and cost-effectively,” Loveless says. “Our platform was designed by traders for traders, so we understand it must be ready to execute real-time. We help clients remove the barriers of capital investment, connectivity and time-to-market so they can focus on doing what they do best, generating revenue.”
