Interxion Shows Continued Commitment to U.S. Financial Trading Community Looking to Enter European Markets
LONDON 4 October 2010 – Interxion, a leading European provider of carrier-neutral colocation data centre services, today announced that it is sponsoring Best Execution USA, October 6, 2010 in New York City at the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers.
In addition to sponsoring the event, Interxion’s Proximity Hosting Director, Lilia Severina, will be participating in the panel, “High-frequency trading: Adapting to an increasingly competitive playing field.” As part of the panel, participants will evaluate the role of best execution in high-frequency trading, discussing how to deploy the proper trading infrastructure to achieve competitive advantage and how colocation helps drive zero latency.
Best Execution USA addresses key issues in the electronic trading industry by bringing together the latest advancements, tactics and initiatives in the field. Best Execution USA focuses on the most cutting-edge technologies in the market and how they can contribute to the major challenges and opportunities that firms are facing, including implementing algorithmic trading strategies, staying competitive in the high-frequency trading space and ensuring effective liquidity access.
Interxion’s sponsorship of Best Execution USA shows its continued commitment to the trading community and, in particular, U.S. firms looking to start trading the European markets. As a result of post-MiFID liquidity fragmentation and the introduction of new platforms by the European exchanges, the European markets are becoming increasingly attractive to U.S. trading firms. Interxion sees a large and growing demand for colocation and proximity hosting from US investment and trading firms, even in the current challenging circumstances.
Interxion’s Financial Hub data centres are located in close proximity to Europe’s leading liquidity venues. These data centres house an extensive community of exchanges, MTFs, sell-side and buy-side firms, market data vendors, clearing houses, and technology and connectivity vendors. This allows customers to interconnect with their counterparties within the data centre at ultra-low latency and offers the flexibility to be able to quickly and efficiently change trading strategies when required. Interxion’s coverage extends to all major financial centres in Europe, including London, Stockholm, Frankfurt, Zurich and Madrid.
“Market participants at Interxion benefit from the choice and flexibility provided by the fast-growing trading community located at Interxion as well as the broad range of network providers offering low-latency routes to the major liquidity venues,” said Lilia Severina, Proximity Hosting Director, Interxion. “With changes to financial trading laws, regulations and technologies comes a need to understand the future directions of financial markets. Best Execution USA is a great event to gain this kind of insight, both in terms of innovations and strategies.”
