In the early 2000s, slow growth in established economies meant the international financial community looked towards Asia for new trading opportunities. Sucden Financial was one such company to benefit from this shift. A large number of traders began using the brokerage for its proprietary STAR electronic trading platform, which is used to trade futures and options on the LME, CME, ICE and other exchanges.
To support this growing customer segment, Sucden Financial’s team searched for a low latency provider experienced in delivering reliable connectivity to its Hong Kong hub. Stability, coupled with low latency was key – the company wanted to ensure greater network availability while simultaneously improving network uptimes between London and Hong Kong.
