Our Capital Markets Ecosystem
Driven by technological innovation, complex market structures, and regulatory reforms, the financial markets are particularly demanding and challenging. Global competition, market fragmentation and the need to connect quickly to an increasing number of interdependent exchanges and liquidity pools have increased the costs and complexity of trading.
Time-to-market, network performance and connectivity to a wider financial ecosystem across multiple asset-classes have become the main challenges for market participants. Colt and its financial ecosystem and partners are uniquely positioned to provide cost-effective solutions either as modular stand-alone services or as fully integrated end-to-end solutions.
