Options expands ultra low latency hosting capabilities across JPX, TSE and OSE markets
Options, a provider of managed trading infrastructure and connectivity to the global capital markets, has ex[anded its managed hosting and connectivity capabilities in Japan Exchange Group (JPX) providing access across both the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) and Osaka Exchange (OSE).
JPX, one of the largest stock exchanges globally, was established through the combination of the Tokyo Stock Exchange and Osaka Securities Exchange in 2013 and provides market participants with reliable venues for trading through the provision of market services, market data, order execution, and clearing and settlement.
This exciting addition to the firm’s colocation footprint means Options will be working alongside this premium exchange for both low-latency market data, and order entry routing, with test/UAT access available also in the JPX colocation facility.
Options’ Managing Director for APAC, Jun Ashida, says: “As the world’s leading Managed Colocation service provider, our focus is always to provide clients with stable Ultra-Low Latency connectivity and hosting services within a fully compliant infrastructure. We have worked closely with JPX in expanding our market data and order entry routing offering and are proud to offer clients best-in-class TSE and OSE market access.
Coupled with our infrastructure upgrades and resilient high-capacity links across the region, clients can efficiently trade across all key Asia exchanges and liquidity venues with minimal latency.”
Kenichi Kobayashi, Director of IT services at TSE, adds: “We are delighted to be working with Options to provide access across TSE and OSE markets.
"Combining Options’ and JPX’s financial infrastructure services will enable clients to leverage their businesses across both TSE Equities and OSE Derivatives markets, creating an optimal customer experience."
