KVH Offers Tokyo Stock Exchange Co-location Service
As we announced last November, KVH started offering a Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) Co-location Service from January 2012 within TSE’s own co-location environment.
The TSE Co-location Service provides market participants and overseas institutional investors with ultra low latency connectivity to TSE’s primary trading engine. This service is ideal for latency-sensitive investors who wish to undertake high-frequency trading on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
KVH offers pre-system activation, access to the TSE Arrownet network, international leased line services, procurement, set-up, testing & implementation of servers, and remote monitoring for users of the TSE Co-location Service with complete bilingual support. This enables overseas institutional investors to outsource full operations of their equipment and have a lower cost of entry into the Tokyo market. It also gives overseas investors the opportunity to promptly implement an ultra low latency network environment for trading without the need to have a local office in Japan. Moreover, it is available for users to connect with multiple brokers at the same TSE primary center, depending on trading tactics.
By leveraging our own high-speed optical fiber networks and the KVH Tokyo Data Center, KVH provides proximity services well-suited for ultra low latency order execution with multiple exchanges from a single site. By becoming a TSE Co-location supporting vendor, we can offer our customers several options to suit a full range of trading strategies including the lowest latency connectivity to the TSE as well as multi-venue strategies that require connectivity to the other Japanese and regional exchanges.
