    About Fixnetix

    Fixnetix is a 2013, 2012 and 2011 award  winning company providing outsourced managed services across multiple asset classes to leading global banks, hedge funds and proprietary trading groups seeking trading, market data, hosting, infrastructure connectivity and risk management solutions. The company is in 33 co- location and proximity hosting centres across Europe, USA, Asia-Pac and Africa and offers trading access to over 89+ markets.

    Fixnetix is one of the first firms to offer the FPGA for execution. The company launched on November 2010 a real-time low latency filter, iX-eCute, an FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) to solve the eternal industry conundrum of pre-trade risk, compliance and ultra-low latency execution. iX-eCute opens the marketplace to all participants with no detrimental impact on trading performance. The microchip enforces pre-market risks at nanosecond time frames whilst preventing impact on latencies that historically have slowed down more traditional trading systems and models. Unlike other solutions, the iX-eCute microchip has near zero impact on latency for governing the required checks directed by the SEC Rule 15c3-5 and anticipated declarations from other regulatory governing bodies.
