Exchange Hosting has been an instrumental component in increasing the flow of liquidity by reducing round-trip latency times and increasing the likelihood of successful trading execution.

Exchange Hosting enables trading participants to physically locate their servers within London Stock Exchange Group’s data centre facilities, providing low microsecond access to trading platforms and real-time market data services.
