TMX Atrium, provider of smarter infrastructure solutions for the financial community, today announced that it has expanded its infrastructure and is delivering Canadian market data into the Equinix NY4 data centre in Secaucus, New Jersey.
TMX Atrium’s decision to increase its footprint at the NY4 Equinix hub is in response to increased customer demand for access to the full range of Canadian market data. TMX Atrium’s venue neutral platform is designed to maximise trading participant opportunities. It offers a simple access point onto the world’s largest liquidity centres and ensures TMX Atrium community members benefit from fast, robust and highly scalable connectivity. TMX Atrium global clients benefit by being able to tap into the growing number of financial trading participants located at the Equinix NY4 hub.
Emmanuel Carjat, Managing Director, TMX Atrium said, “Offering high-speed connectivity to multiple liquidity venues remains a key priority for TMX Atrium. By investing and co-locating in the key trading centres our customers are assured of the best performance possible when trading multi-asset classes amongst venues. In line with our strategy, we are responding to customer demand by bringing the full range of Canadian market data feeds to NY4.”
John Knuff, GM Global Financial Services, Equinix added, “We’re delighted to welcome TMX Atrium to NY4, which is developing into an important hub for our financial services customers. Our customers now have direct access to the Canadian markets using TMX Atrium, and TMX Atrium members can now expand their reach across the USA and into Europe using the TMX Atrium infrastructure located inside the Equinix IBX.”
Andre Craig, Vice President, TMX Datalinx added, “Through this partnership, TMX Atrium and Equinix are able to offer their respective clients access to the largest and most liquid Canadian equities and derivatives markets. This allows our data to be pushed further into NY4 and across the U.S., and builds on our June 2011 announcement to enhance the efficiency of trading in order to meet increasing demand for Canadian market data.”
