    undertaking in helping our mutual customers mitigate the risks of poor or out of sync time stamps when disseminating 
    and trading on sensitive market information,” said Andrew Kusminsky, Chief Operating Officer at Perseus Telecom. “We 
    look forward to serving trading firms and vendors such as those within CME Group’s data center which require a high 
    level of responsibility in compliance and high precision trading.”
