    London, 9th January 2013S&P Capital IQ Real-Time Solutions, the global provider of innovative market data services,trading and infrastructure solutions, has reinforced its Asia offering by extending its QuantFEED and QuantLINK solutions through Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing’s (HKEx) transformative Orion programme. The new service provides participants with faster access to both trading platform and market data services.

    The launch of the HKEx Orion Market Data (OMD) Platform and Orion Central Gateway (OCG) programme illustrates the growth of client demand for market access, connectivity, speed and efficiency across Asia. The use of S&P Capital IQ’s sector-leading products through these portals will enable flexibility and faster access to low latency market data, alongside a broader scope of connectivity across major financial capitals around the world, including several centres in the Asia-Pacific region.

    This move follows S&P Capital IQ’s co-location to HKEx’s data centre in Tseung Kwan O, Hong Kong earlier this year, resulting in a greater competitive advantage for clients. Being a member of HKEx Hosting Services ecosystem has added to the wide range of low latency connectivity and co-location services provided by S&P Capital IQ to meet the requirements of buy- and sell-side clients, both in Asia-Pacific and globally, for high performance and cost effective solutions.

     Stephane Leroy, Vice-President, Real-Time Solutions at S&P Capital IQ commented, “Our strengthened position as part of the HKEx Orion ecosystem marks our commitment to developing our offering across Asia-Pacific. Clients keen to access the region will maintain their competitive-edge through our ultra-high-speed data and managed trading solutions that improve connectivity performance and reduce trade execution speed.”

     “Our Orion programme is a suite of technology initiatives aimed at transforming the HKEx markets and providingstate-of-the-art infrastructure for market access, speed and functionality. We welcome the inclusion of S&P Capital IQ’s Real-Time Solutions to our Hosting Services ecosystem and the opportunity for market data participants to select high-calibre, efficient solutions that best reflect their trading requirements,” concluded HKEx Head of Hosting Services, Jonathan Leung.

    S&P Capital IQ Real-Time Solutions currently boasts over 130* real-time feeds from exchanges, brokers and index providers around the globe. This latest development marks one in a series of partnerships with a specific focus on the Asia-Pacific region, as the firm looks to enhance the breadth of its coverage.

    QuantFEED is S&P Capital IQ Real-Time Solutions’ unique end-to-end ultra-low latency market data feed fully managed solution with a global Service Level Agreement including hardware, software and telecommunication components.

    QuantLINK, the firm’s high performance global trading infrastructure service, interconnects the cores of multiple exchanges with proximity hosting at the source, ensuring clients can operate trading systems in close proximity to the exchange matching engine. The solution simultaneously addresses the demand to reduce both connectivity costs and latency, while also having the capability to complement or replace existing legacy infrastructures.
