With the award, Colt was recognised by CIIS for its active participation in exchange feed changes by providing valuable, prompt feedback, compliance, and licensing as a top real-time global data vendor that delivers all the components needed to connect to, and maintain, low latency market data – including managing performance, latency and bandwidth of data feeds.

Colt is a licensed market data vendor which offers direct and normalised market data feeds for equities, derivatives, commodities and foreign exchange (FX) from more than 50 exchanges and liquidity venues worldwide. Colt is also an official real time data vendor for a number of Chinese exchanges offered by CIIS which includes Shanghai Stock Exchange (SSE), China Financial Futures Exchange (CFFEX) and Zhengzhou Commodity Exchange (ZCE). In addition, with CIIS’ extensive network and support, Colt was able to  obtain real time data from other Chinese exchanges such as the Shanghai Futures Exchange (SHFE), Shanghai International Energy Exchange (INE), further enhancing its coverage in the Chinese capital market.

Wesley Elder, Product Director, Global Capital Markets, Colt Technology Services, said: “We’re grateful for this recognition by CIIS, as we strive to bring our capital market expertise to the world. The digital era has opened up more opportunities in market data licensing, and for capital markets participants.
