Exchange Hosting


Key features

What is Exchange Hosting?

Exchange Hosting provides the fastest route possible to London Stock Exchange Group trading venues and services. Clients co-locate their equipment within the same data centre as the matching engines and market data systems for the lowest latency access.

Who is it for?

Exchange Hosting is available to all trading participants (members and non-members) in London and Milan, and also to information vendors in London. The Exchange Hosting Service is popular amongst proprietary vendors, trading firms and desks, as well as prime brokers, and is now home to a large community of low latency clients.

What are the key benefits for clients?

The service provides the client with the lowest latency connectivity option, helping to manage risk and improve certainty of execution for their programmed trading strategies. The service also offers a secure and resilient 

data centre environment for key systems, and hosts a community of prime brokers providing trading and other services to non-members.

Two data centres

Exchange Hosting is London Stock Exchange Group’s lowest latency connectivity option for firms seeking the fastest possible access to its trading venues. London Stock Exchange Group has two co-location facilities:

  • A fully owned operated City of London data centre providing access to London Stock Exchange, Turquoise and Oslo Børs trading venues
  • A data centre in Milan providing access to Borsa Italiana’s MTA, ETF Plus, MOT, SEDEX, IDEM derivatives and Euro TLX.

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. The service has enhanced and extended London Stock Exchange Group’s range of connectivity options and gives participants the flexibility to connect to their hosted equipment through a choice of industry-leading carriers. 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.

Customer benefits of co-locating with London Stock Exchange Group

Clients today experience a number of significant benefits when choosing to host within London Stock Exchange Group’s data centres:

  • The data centres are resilient and maintained to a very high standard with excellent up-time history
  • The facilities are strategically and centrally located to achieve good average latency to multiple trading venues
  • Our flexible connectivity model provides access to a range of industry-leading low latency domestic and European carriers
  • High capacity 10Gb cross-connectivity to trading and information services
  • Low latency access to a growing community of prime brokers who facilitate trading and other essential trading support services for non-member firms.

Sponsored Access

In addition to the traditional Direct Market Access (DMA) model operated by member firms, London Stock Exchange and Turquoise cash equity markets offer a Sponsored Access service enabling non-members to connect directly using configurable low latency pre-trade risk checks and controls, managed by their sponsoring member. This service further enhances the opportunities for clients wishing to trade on those trading venues from within the Exchange Hosting Service.

Dedicated customer connectivity – London and Milan

London Stock Exchange Group has launched a high-speed dedicated connectivity service between the Exchange Hosting London and Milan data centres. The dedicated connectivity service utilises a low latency route between the Exchange’s data centre for the clients’ own data. The Exchange has leveraged the extensive network, service experience and proven reliability of Level 3 communication to provide this service.

GPS time synchronisation service

Both in London and Milan Exchange Hosting data centres, London Stock Exchange Group can provide time synchronisation through GPS.

Remote hands – London and Milan

A team of highly-skilled, dedicated engineering resources is available for client installations and modifications to existing equipment. This service extends beyond the traditional level of racking and stacking. Clients should enquire with their local Exchange Hosting team for further explanation of services we are able to provide.
