- Avelacom will provide trading participants with one-stop-shop connectivity solutions through JPX’s arrownet-Global partnership
Avelacom, the low latency connectivity, IT infrastructure and data solutions provider for global financial markets, has become one of Japan Exchange Group's (JPX) arrownet-Global Partner Network vendors. This will enable financial services institutions to directly access JPX’s exchanges and markets in cash equities, commodities, and derivatives via Avelacom’s connectivity solutions. JPX comprises the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE), the Osaka Exchange (OSE), and the Tokyo Commodity Exchange (TOCOM).
This JPX infrastructure is now an integral part of Alevacom’s proprietary, ultra-low latency network across global financial exchanges, which will improve the convenience of market access to Japan’s capital markets for overseas market participants.
Japan is one of the most strategic markets for Avelacom. The company has been increasing its presence in Tokyo over the past four years. This includes opening a branch office in Tokyo to be able to serve clients in Japanese, the operation of points-of-presence (PoPs) in several data centers, as well as the metro network in Tokyo. Avelacom has also obtained a permission by the local telecommunications authority to provide telecommunications services in Japan.
Aleksey Larichev, CEO of Avelacom said: “Our infrastructure setup within JPX is a significant milestone for our development as it supports our growth in Japan. Among our clients are global banks, hedge funds and proprietary trading firms, and all of them increasingly want to be able to trade multi-asset markets such as JPX’s financial instruments. We already own the lowest latency routes to and from Tokyo. This gives us a head start in the provision of JPX market access solutions for financial services firms, both inside and outside of Japan.”
