A trading firm grows its business in Asia supported by Colt connectivity and colocation

This US-based proprietary trading firm conducts around a million trades every day on exchanges all over the world. To maintain exceptional trading performance,it colocates infrastructure as physically close to critical matching engines as possible, and connects to other markets using high-speed, low-latency circuits.
In Japan, the firm used to trade through a single broker. But rapid growth in the volumes of equities, derivatives and other instruments being traded soon led it to seek improved pricing and execution using multiple brokers. That meant establishing infrastructure and connectivity in the region with the help of a local partner, as it has no legal entity in Japan.

The firm chose Colt to meet its colocation, connectivity and market data needs – a combination that most other providers in the region can’t offer. As well as being broker neutral, Colt has a strong local presence and the language skills and regulatory knowledge to help customers do business in Japan.
