Proximity and the London Stock Exchange

Finextra managed to grab a couple of minutes with Nigel Harold, head of technology business development at the London Stock Exchange (LSE) during the TradeTech event in London this month. He says positive things about Colt’s data centre and managed service delivery for the LSE, which is good to hear. It’s also encouraging to understand how proximity servers enable the LSE to provide choice for its trading partners in how they transact across the exchange, particularly in the context of high frequency trading and the IT responsibility the goes with it.
