Beeks Financial Cloud, a UK-based low-latency service provider for institutional capital markets, has launched Beeks Marketplace, a cloud-based portal that enables real-time connectivity to a variety of exchanges, data feeds, trading tools and news services.
Beeks Marketplace can be used by institutional traders, proprietary trading firms, brokers, wealth managers and high-end retail traders for site-to-site and direct venue connectivity.
It will act as a portal where customers can browse, research and purchase anything from cross-connections to security products, the company said.
Customers can buy immediate connectivity using a credit card via Beeks Marketplace and have products provisioned in real-time.
Beeks Financial Cloud CEO Gordon McArthur said: “Our customers have been clamoring for this type of connectivity solution for quite some time. They want connectivity quickly, and don’t want to wait weeks to have secure, low-latency connections. Beeks Marketplace allows customers to be much more nimble in deploying trading strategies or infrastructure.”
