We’re thrilled to announce that we have been nominated for one or more categories in this years’ Intelligent Trading Technology (ITT) awards.

The ITT Awards have been designed to acknowledge excellence in trading technology within capital markets, and focus on the community of specialised suppliers of trading operations technology.

The nominees are awarded based on industry recognition and merit, in conjunction with a judging panel. Among the nominees in some of the other categories are many of our clients including Fidessa. It is a privilege to be nominated alongside them and we wish them all the very best of luck in their categories.

CEO Michael Ourabah comments on the nomination, “We built this company with the vision to become the worlds’ best low latency provider in terms of customer service and technical excellence whilst maintaining integrity every step of the way. A prestigious merit-based accolade such as the ITT award goes one step further in demonstrating this integrity and we’re very pleased to be in with a chance. I’d like to thank all of our partners, clients and friends in advance for their support in voting for us – we really value your loyalty and commitment.”

Over the last year, we have invested heavily in our ultra low-latency global finance network, increasing our international points-of-presence in major financial hubs by 30% and reducing latencies around the globe. Amongst the most significant optimisations are key trading circuits between CME <> MOEX (105.40ms RTD)*, CME <> DGCX (164ms RTD)* and CME <> BKC (175.22ms RTD)*, which are the world’s fastest trading routes between these locations.

*Latencies correct as of 07/04/2017.


These recent investments amongst others demonstrate how we are always striving to deliver the very best services to our capital markets clients. If you have a spare couple of minutes, please support us by casting a vote our way. The deadline for voting is 21st April. Thank you, we really appreciate your time and watch this space for the winners announcement in June.
