QuantHouse, S&P Capital IQ’s Real Time operation and the global provider of next generation trading solutions, is expanding its core services to Asia by teaming-up with BT. QuantHouse will be using BT Radianz services to distribute its low-latency European and American market data feeds into the Asia/Pacific region.
As part of the agreement QuantHouse will be connecting to the BT Radianz Cloud, which supports the largest secure networked financial community in the world, to make its services available to its customers across the Asia/Pacific region. It will also be using BT Radianz Venue Interconnect to offer QuantHouse customers optimised low-latency connectivity between three key routes: London/Singapore, Singapore/Tokyo and Tokyo Chicago.
Tom Regent, President, Global Banking & Financial Markets, BT Global Services, commented, “Our BT Radianz Cloud platform has an extensive global presence, with real strength in the Asia/Pacific region where we currently have over 2,500 community member sites. With BT Radianz Venue Interconnect, QuantHouse can also be sure it is offering its clients the best-in-breed technology and low site-to-site latency at all times.”
“BT’s distribution capabilities in Asia will enable us to make our services more readily available throughout the region” added Stephane Leroy, Vice-President, Head of Global Real Time Solutions at S&P Capital IQ. “Due to the strategic importance of the Asia/Pacific market and the attractive growth that the region is experiencing, we are keen to further our presence in the area, and look forward to working with BT in the medium-term.”
