CFH Clearing Now Live in LD4 Data Centre
March 6th 2015
We are now live in Equinix’s LD4 data centre. By moving our matching, order and execution system to the same data centre as many of our London-based clients and liquidity providers, clients connecting through our advanced ClearVision technology solutions can benefit from ultra low latency and cost efficiencies.
Lars Holst, CEO, CFH Clearing comments, “By making a huge investment in the latest hardware technology in processing, storage and advanced networks, we can provide clients with optimal execution and even more reliability. Our goal was to deliver trading power from the heart of FX without compromise and we are now fully operational, available for cross connecting to brokers and liquidity providers from two locations within LD4. This, combined with our connectivity enhancements in China, puts CFH at the forefront of the industry, providing a market leading offering to our clients.”
CFH Systems to Provide Direct Internet Access into China
We have teamed up with CFH Systems to enter a direct internet peering agreement with China Unicom to offer all CFH clients the fastest, most reliable route with the lowest possible latency when trading between China and Europe.
CFH Systems has invested in dedicated fibres between London and Beijing, bridging the FX liquidity of London with mainland China. Working in conjunction with China Unicom, the leading Chinese internet provider, our new connectivity solution will be live by the end of April 2015.
Ole Rossing, CIO, CFH Systems explains, “Typically, internet traffic between China and Europe is routed through North America and the Pacific Ocean but with these new landlines in place, all CFH customer traffic will automatically be routed through the shortest path, using a high quality line to ensure the lowest possible latency.
“Our new infrastructure reflects our strong focus on Asia and will greatly improve the quality of our offering in the region. Since opening our offices in Hong Kong and Tokyo, we have seen a surge in business in the region and we believe that having dedicated lines between London and Beijing will be a catalyst for further growth.”
