MarketPrizm to Provide ultra-low latency access to GETCO Execution Services Europe

London - 16 May 2012

MarketPrizm, a leading provider of market data and trading infrastructure services, has announced it will provide hosting and connectivity solutions for financial institutions seeking access to GETCO Execution Services Europe (GES Europe), GETCO’s centrally cleared broker crossing network for European equities.

Via PrizmNet, a dedicated multi-venue ultra-low latency connectivity infrastructure for the financial trading industry, MarketPrizm will enable faster connectivity for clients to GES Europe, which provides coverage of the most liquid equities in the UK, France, Italy, Germany, Belgium, Portugal, Switzerland and the Nordic countries.

With this service, brokers and buy-side firms will be able to send their orders to GES Europe from anywhere in Europe by cross-connecting to PrizmNet in any one of the venues across Europe or directly in London. PrizmNet will provide clients with streamlined access to the platform while reducing the on-boarding time for new clients.

Tanuja Randery, CEO of MarketPrizm, said: “MarketPrizm is connected to 23 markets in Europe and our robust and secure connectivity coupled with our Market Hosting solution will allow GETCO to reach more clients, in more markets, more quickly.”

“Outsourcing non-core services such as connectivity and hosting makes good business sense as it reduces costs while providing the flexibility to allow infrastructure to be scaled-up quickly and easily to suit changing business priorities. It also means financial institutions can focus on what they do best. In GETCO’s case this is providing investors with access to the highest quality liquidity.”

“Traders who access GES Europe on MarketPrizm’s platform will enjoy an enhanced execution experience and dedicated access to the liquidity of a leading global market maker,” said Virginie Saade, head of European Sales for GETCO. “GES Europe offers brokers: world-class customer service, anti-gaming technology, protection from information leakage, complete order anonymity, rapid fill-rates and total counter-party clarity.”
