Fusion Systems' Raptor goes live on Australia venues with leading global sell-side firms

Sydney, Australia - 11 June 2015

Fusion Systems announced that Raptor, a leading ultra-low-latency market gateway and pre-at-post-trade risk management solution, is live with high volume order flow on the ASX Trade, ASX Trade24 and Chi-X Australia venues. Raptor provides brokerages and proprietary desks with FIX/OUCH and market-native direct market access and comprehensive risk management for all major Asia-Pacific cash and derivatives exchanges, including alternative venues. Fusion’s software solution, Raptor, maintains one of the lowest contractually committed latencies in the market, achieving a median latency of 50 microseconds in production while sustaining an order rate of 10,000 TPS with pre-trade risk and compliance checks embedded. 

Huw Rogers, partner at Fusion Systems and chief architect of Raptor, commented, ”We are pleased to offer our clients full product coverage of the Australia markets. In today’s trading marketplace, where increasingly diverse and widespread regulations are imposed, there is a continued focus on risk management, specifically on pre-trade risk controls. Additionally, lower latency continues to be important to trading strategies, especially when algorithmic and program trading methodologies are fundamental to customers’ business. Raptor, along with our hardware-accelerated offerings, help member firms meet full pre-trade risk management compliance while minimising latency.”
