Colt continues significant investment in upgrade and expansion of ultra low latency network connecting key financial markets globally

Colt Technology Services announced the launch of its new ultra low latency service connecting the Australia Securities Exchange (ASX) and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME), offering the lowest latency available in the industry. In addition, Colt is now able to provide protected services to ASX with the implementation of this new route.

The new route is part of Colt’s strategic expansion programme to upgrade low latency routes between key exchanges and financial markets.

The ASX-CME route supports the requirements of buy-side and sell-side financial firms operating in the Asia Pacific region, which is particularly important for high-frequency trading (HFT) strategies.
