India has taken a big step forward in widening its low-latency trading community. The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) in March announced regulatory changes designed to let more firms trade via shared managed colocation services. The move, SEBI said, would benefit small- and medium-sized firms that may have been prohibited from such trading previously due to costs and lack of expertise.
Ahead of the 2018 FIX India Conference, The Realization Group spoke to some of the panellists of the morning session ‘Taking a Closer Look at Low Latency Trading – Technical Perspectives’, to find out why this is such a promising development and what issues market participants need to consider as they enter the world of colocation. We hear from Matthew Lempriere, head of Asia-Pacific and Middle East at BSO, Sammy Ho, Managing Director at FIX Trading Community and Plus Concepts, Denis Sweeney, Business Development Director, Asia Pacific at Metamako, Jean-Arnold Chenilleau, Program Manager at Orolia, and Anshuman Das, CTO of Treasury and Global Markets at Edelweiss.
