    About Fixnetix

    Fixnetix, 2012 award winner (BEST HFT Product in Europe for Risk Control from eFinancial News Awards for Excellence,) and 2011 award winning company (fastest growing tech company in England and 2nd fastest in all of Europe,) provides outsourced managed services across multiple asset classes to leading global banks, hedge funds and proprietary trading groups seeking ultra-low latency trading, market data, hosting, infrastructure connectivity and risk management solutions.

    Fixnetix is one of the first firms to offer the FPGA for execution. The company announced late 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 with the necessary risk controls. iX-eCute 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 recent SEC Rule 15c3-5 and anticipated declarations from other regulatory governing bodies. The FPGA is available and being utilised for execution with nic to nic times as low as 740 nanoseconds.
