ION, a global provider of trading, analytics, treasury, and risk management solutions for capital markets, commodities, and treasury management announce that ION MarketFactory has been named ‘Best connectivity, hosting and co-location service’ at FX Markets e-FX Awards 2022.

Announced during the FX Markets Europe conference in London, the FX Markets e-FX Awards recognize the dedication, skill, and creativity of market participants in the growing, changing world of electronic FX trading. ION MarketFactory’s Nexus took the top honours in the ‘Best connectivity, hosting and co-location service’ category, which was open to vendors that provide trading-related capabilities as a managed service.

Since its inception, ION MarketFactory has sought to provide low-latency products, allowing clients to connect seamlessly to the diverse and growing FX market network. Through MarketFactory’s Whisperer, a single API connectivity solution, clients can leverage Nexus, a low-latency co-location infrastructure cloud solution that’s easy and seamless. From direct cross-connects and market data and trading venues to high-speed lines between data centres, Nexus offers almost instant access to a global network. Inherently versatile, Nexus is available as a customizable hosting option, or as a fully managed solution.

Over the past year, ION MarketFactory enhanced its overall product offering the expanding its network in Singapore, adding new data feeds for 31 venues, finalizing its historical data offering, and announcing strategic partnerships (notably Tradefeedr QuantHouse, Ideal Predictions) and extending its offerings beyond FX.

“We are pleased that Nexus won the ‘Best connectivity, hosting and co-location service’ category at FX Markets e-FX Awards this year,” said Eugene Markman, CEO of ION MarketFactory and COO of ION Markets (FX). “Nexus is a product suite solution, so clients connected to the Nexus by whatever means can improve their performance with all ION MarketFactory’s applications. For example, the combination of Nexus and our flagship product, Whisperer, gives clients high-speed liquidity access from different regions, without having to provision their own circuits.”
