Electronic Trading Came to the Fore in 2020, and Avelacom is Well-placed to Ease the Transition to Automation Technologies

The hold of electronic trading substantially tightened in world’s capital markets in 2020 as participants shifted en masse from voice-trading in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.


Avelacom, an authorised service provider of connectivity and infrastructure solutions for the world’s exchanges, expects this shift to continue in 2021 and beyond as more firms adapt their trading practices to remote working styles.

The firm owns and operates a global network connecting to 80 liquidity sources. The adaptation of the world markets to the extraordinary stresses of the pandemic reinforces the ever-growing need for low-latency connectivity solutions between the world’s major financial hubs.

This is a situation which plays into the hands for Avelacom, thanks to its worldwide connectivity network.

Avelacom is renowned for its low latency solutions in particular: it has six-years of experience in building shorter, new and unique paths between various exchanges, ECNs and crypto exchanges. It provides capital markets with the lowest latency infrastructure, market data and connectivity services.

Avelacom’s fibre network forms optimal routes to and from the fastest-growing markets, allowing companies to access new connectivity options and IT resources — with better control of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), but no compromise in data speed.

Trading firms looking for arbitrage and diversification opportunities are often sensitive to the cost of roll-out. Reliability and low latency are of primary importance to make entering these markets practical and beneficial.

Avelacom’s expertise and presence across emerging markets in APAC, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Latin America help make it easier to set-up and explore new trading opportunities.

It provides solutions which are asset-neutral and cover all key global markets. It offers the best latencies for the most popular FX triangle of New York-London-Tokyo, with optimal routes to and from the world’s e-FX hub, Singapore.

When it comes to equity, Avalacom provides access to new markets, including Istanbul, Riyadh, Tel Aviv, Moscow and Johannesburg. It also offers best-in-market commodity connections between CME, LME, Chinese markets and Brazil, and high-speed access to global cryptocurrency exchanges.

The company’s geographic expansion focuses on optimising existing routes. Over the past year, Avelacom set up additional PoPs in data centers including Tokyo, Dublin, Bangkok, Sao Paulo, Ashburn and San Jose.

The authorised service provider gives access to the world’s most important exchanges, including the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), Borsa İstanbul (BIST), Brasil Bolsa Balcao (B3), CME Group, Dubai Gold & Commodities Exchange (DGCX), Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), LMAX, London Metal Exchange (LME), Moscow Exchange (MoEx), Singapore Exchange (SGX), Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET), and the Taiwan Futures Exchange (TAIFEX).
