Capital markets firms use the Colt PrizmNet extranet service to connect to new markets and clients worldwide, giving them the ability to quickly and seamlessly tap into global markets and liquidity sources. Colt PrizmNet is distributing content and services from a range of content providers and exchanges, including Chi-X Japan, Fidelity Corporate Actions Solutions, GMEX Group, JPX, Moscow Exchange (MOEX), Nasdaq, SBI Japannext and TradingScreen / TradeNet.  The extranet also connects market participants to providers that can help them comply with the regulatory requirements outlined in the forthcoming MiFID II directive, including Aquis Exchange and TraderServe.

John Loveland, VP of Capital Markets at Colt, said, “Capital markets firms operate in an environment where opportunities are short lived. Therefore, being able to access new sources of liquidity as well as establish markets quickly provides them with a significant competitive advantage. Colt PrizmNet has been designed in consultation with a range of market participants and now has over 50 providers of content and services worldwide.”

“Colt PrizmNet is also transforming the customer experience with a portal that allows firms to easily obtain quotes and order services, as well as monitor network performance in real time,” continued Loveland. “Together with the recent launch of our SDN network, Colt PrizmNet demonstrates our vision at Colt to enable customers to build and operate their networks.”

We offer the market pioneering interest rate swap futures, which are priced like a swap, traded like a future. Via Colt's financial extranet and self-service portal, a worldwide ecosystem of 10,000 capital markets participants' sites can connect to our exchange and take advantage of a simpler, more cost-effective way of trading interest rates." -- James Davies, COO, GMEX Group

As the country's largest PTS by value traded, SBI Japannext is committed to supporting traders looking to enter or increase their presence in Japan. Our partnership with Colt PrizmNet gives firms in Europe and beyond easy and flexible access to the Japanese market by reducing the cost of entry and lead time for trading.” -- Marc Robinson, Chief Relationship Officer at SBI Japannext
