Moscow Exchange teams up with Avelacom, expands in Asia and the Middle East

Moscow Exchange (MOEX) has just announced its collaboration with Avelacom, in order to facilitate the connectivity options for professional market participants and their clients from Asia and the Middle East.

Avelacom launches a new PoP in Thailand

The exchange informed that it has deployed new Points of Presence (PoPs) in Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai, Dubai and Mumbai. Market participants will now have high speed access to MOEX’s markets without the need to build extra infrastructure and pay for low latency network connection to Moscow.

MOEX’s PoPs provide low latency connectivity, FIX protocol for trading transactions, access to MOEX’s market data, as well as trading on MOEX’s market through Sponsored Market Access (SMA).

MOEX has also improved quality specifications of its PoP in London: latency from the LD4 data center to MOEX has been reduced to 36 milliseconds (from 41 milliseconds).

We see growing interest in Russian assets from these regions from financial market participants such as investment funds, HFT traders and market makers. The new PoPs in Asia, which have been deployed in the most commonly used data centers for connection, will help existing customers optimize their connectivity schemes, while providing new customers with more effective trading solutions and open access to MOEX’s liquidity pool. We are confident that the high-end market access infrastructure will also enable us to attract new participants and their clients to the Russian market.
