Intercontinental Exchange, Inc., a global provider of data, tech and market infrastructure, announced the expansion of the ICE Global Network in the APAC, with new access centers in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo. This follows a significant investment in the region and brings ICE’s network and managed services offerings to parity with other global financial centers.
What does the expansion mean for ICE?
Commenting on the expansion, Amanda Hindlian, President of Fixed Income and Data Services at ICE, said, “Although Asia is an area of opportunity for many firms, the region has lacked a one-stop provider for access to global markets and key hosting services.”
“As we look across all of the solutions that we provide, we’re committed to offering a consistent service, providing ultra-low-latency and high resiliency to the market, which help our customers manage risks and find opportunities in the most efficient ways possible.”
“As a network provider and an operator of 13 global equity, futures and options exchanges, ICE has experience providing high performance market connectivity and the highest level of customer service. We’re thrilled to be able to provide a solution for clients where they can access markets, data and analytics through one solution, and all through an ultra-low-latency connection,” said Magnus Cattan, Head of ICE Fixed Income and Data Services in APAC.
What is the ICE Global Network?
ICE has enhanced its connectivity access center offerings in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo. These enhancements include ultra-low-latency access to local markets, like Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEX), the Japan Exchange Group (JPX) and the Shanghai Futures Exchange (SHFE), along with regional and international connectivity leveraging ICE’s ultra-low latency backbone. All of these locations will be supported by ICE’s industry-leading customer service.
With hubs located around the world, the ICE Global Network offers high-quality content, delivery and execution services through ultra-secure, highly resilient fiber and wireless networks. Its hosted and managed services provide customers with end-to-end hosting, hardware procurement, management and support through a single ICE Global Network solution, and cloud offerings provide new, flexible ways to access data throughout the region.
The ICE Global Network is part of ICE’s data services offering, which offers end-to-end solutions for information, analytics, index services and connectivity with a range of proprietary data tools for global markets across fixed income, equities, commodities, FX and options.
