Omniex and Gemini partner to deliver high-performance infrastructure to support institutional investors

Related Topics

Omniex, an institutional investment and trading platform for crypto-assets, and Gemini, a regulated institutional crypto exchange, have cross-connected in Equinix’s low-latency NY5 data centre which caters to large financial institutions and electronic trading ecosystems.

The partnership to deliver the connectivity, features and high-performance trading experience institutional investors need, but was previously missing in the world of crypto investing.
“Fragmented and immature crypto market structure has left institutional investors at a loss for robust solutions, forcing some providers to resort to tweaking platforms engineered for other asset classes,” says Hu Liang, CEO and co-founder of Omniex. “Cross-connecting to Gemini in NY5 further expands the unrivalled level of reliability and performance our clients expect and need to execute on their investment strategies.”
“Omniex shares our core philosophy that technology must be purpose-built for institutional investors to address the regulatory and market challenges they face in crypto assets,” says Tyler Winklevoss, CEO of Gemini. “As our ecosystem continues to mature, it will be vital to work with firms that understand the intricacies of institutional operations, while delivering best-in-class technology that empowers investors.”
Omniex’s platform is purpose-built for institutional investors seeking exposure to crypto-assets. With backgrounds deeply rooted in institutional trading infrastructure and execution optimisation, Omniex’s team has developed an execution management system (EMS) deployed in Equinix’s NY5 data centre, alongside a full featured portfolio and order management system (POMS) in the cloud. Omniex is connected to many of the largest crypto liquidity venues, including leading exchanges and OTC market makers from around the world.
