TMX Atrium completes connectivity link to K13 DC in Moscow

22 October 2013

TMX Atrium, a provider of trading technology infrastructure solutions for the financial community, has connected to the Kislovsky 13 (K13) data centre in Moscow, Russia, expanding the speed and location services on offer to its clients.

Earlier this week, the Moscow Exchange announced a co-location deal with the vendor, further opening up the Russian capital markets. A TMX Atrium fibre optic link has also been established between Russia and western European markets earlier this year as part of this on-going initiative.

Expanding the reach and trading opportunities for Russian and western European trading participants has been a clear trend throughout 2013, with the opening of the K13 data centre just one more example.

Commenting on the DC opening, Emmanuel Carjat, managing director of TMX Atrium, said: “We have been working with Russian market participants since 2011 and now offer a complete solution for clients looking to access and trade the Russian markets. Our work with Russian brokers and the Moscow Exchange ensures we can take participants to different key points in and across Moscow and also effect introductions for participants new to the Moscow market.”

“Building out connectivity to K13 underlines our high-speed, low latency fully resilient offering and allows clients to more easily access the Russian markets,” he concluded.
