Thomson Reuters Introduces Next Generation Elektron Consolidated Feed to Financial Markets in Sydney, Hong Kong and Singapore
HONG KONG - Thomson Reuters, the world’s leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, today announced that it has introduced its next-generation consolidated feed, Elektron Real Time, to new locations in Asia. Launched this month in Sydney, Hong Kong and Singapore, Elektron Real Time will provide customers with full-tick, depth-of-market data from multiple venues around the world. The next generation feed has already been deployed in London, New York, Chicago, Tokyo and Frankfurt and is testimony to the company’s plans to roll out the new high-performance feed worldwide.
The rise of automated trading strategies coupled with the growing requirement for differentiated content has made it more important than ever to connect participants and marketplaces to a technology that offers them a real competitive advantage. As interest in global capital markets from Asian investors grows, the demand for data feeds that can offer enhanced quality of service, lower latency and in-depth coverage has been increasing rapidly in the region.
Elektron Real Time’s innovative distribution technology speeds information delivery to market participants, both from local exchanges and from markets around the globe. Elektron Real Time enables local participants to source broader and deeper local and global content and to access it faster. In addition, all new content can be easily on-boarded and integrated into customer applications.
“Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney are at the heart of Asia’s financial centers with sophisticated automated trading requirements fuelling demand for market transparency. This, coupled with the impact of liquidity fragmentation across Australia is promoting demand across the region for greater depth of content coverage and lower latency data delivery,” said Ralf Roth, global head of Equities Feeds and Platform at Thomson Reuters. “The launch of Elektron Real Time in these centers empowers customers to respond to these challenges. The service provides coverage of more than 400 OTC and exchange traded markets – with full-tick, depth-of-market coverage. This ensures customers get the right data at the right time.”
