Colt Prizmnet expands in APAC connecting to Equinix Hong Kong (HK1) and Singapore (SG1)

Colt PrizmNet, the financial extranet developed by Colt, has continued to grow its footprint in Asia by connecting to Equinix’s International Business Exchange (IBX) data centres in Hong Kong (HK1) and Singapore (SG1).

Colt can now interconnect with key FX centres, both globally and across Asia, including direct connectivity to Equinix’s TY3 data centre in Tokyo, the largest FX trading facility in Asia, as well as Sydney (SY2).

The move doubles the size of Colt PrizmNet’s existing footprint in Hong Kong and Singapore, making it easier than ever for financial companies to quickly and seamlessly connect to an exchange operator, over 50 exchanges – including FX trading platforms  – and providers of financial content and services such as Chi-X Japan, CME, DA International, JPX, Nasdaq, SBI Japannext, SNAP Innovations and TOCOM.

Richard Man, Head of Solution Sales, Capital Markets for Colt in Asia Pacific marked:

It is often challenging for traders in Asia to connect to the region’s scattered liquidity centres, particularly its FX markets. By expanding the availability of Colt PrizmNet in Hong Kong and Singapore to customers hosted in Equinix IBX data centres in each city, we are able to provide an even more flexible and cost-effective solution. Colt PrizmNet is a managed connectivity solution available to financial companies of all sizes wanting to gain an advantage by improving their international reach and their ability to trade all of Asia’s major FX centres.”

Today’s announcement follows the recent signing of an agreement between Colt and Equinix. Colt Prizmnet is also currently connected to key Equinix data centres across Europe and the US, including in London, Frankfurt, Zurich and New York, in addition to Colt’s 34 data centres located across Europe and Asia.
