Gold-i Partners with FXecosystem to Offer Complete Managed IT Service

27 February 2014

Trading systems integrator, Gold-i has partnered with FXecosystem™ to offer a complete managed IT service to retail brokers wishing to offer MT4 to their clients.

Ideal for start-up brokerages or companies which do not have a server room or in-house IT support, this latest service from Gold-i enables brokers anywhere in the world to have a fast and reliable MT4 offering without needing any in-house technology. Using a combination of Gold-i’s Hosted and Managed Services, brokers’ software and hardware will be supported 24x7.

As part of the new offering, Gold-i and FXecosystem, the market leader in FX outsourced connectivity, will work closely with the client to determine the most appropriate hardware set-up and datacentre location for low latency FX hosting and connectivity.  Gold-i will load the MT4 licence, connect MT4 to its super low latency Gold-i Gate Bridge and be responsible for the daily management of the system.

Tom Higgins, CEO of Gold-i comments, “We are seeing an increasing number of brokers who want to purchase an MT4 licence and outsource all hardware and software. We are able to offer consultancy on the most appropriate hardware and software for a particular broker and can then set up and manage all the required technology, enabling the broker to focus entirely on client servicing and business growth.

“We envisage our hosted service will be a big growth area for Gold-i. We selected FXecosystem, a specialist in the FX arena, as our hosting partner because of their technical expertise and global reach in delivering low latency network connectivity.”

James Banister, CEO of FXecosystem adds, “We are pleased to partner with Gold-i to provide Institutional level proximity connectivity to the retail FX sector which is seeking enhanced reliability for connectivity to their banks and trading counterparties. Our service allows for rapid scalability as these clients grow globally.”
