Mercurius partners with Options in step toward Automated Trading as a Service
“With pre-installed connectivity to Options’ next generation ActivOne platform, we can significantly reduce our client’s time-to-market. We believe that trading firms should be able to offload their entire technology stack to focus on their core business.”
Options Technology has partnered with trading platform firm Mercurius Solutions, an Order and Execution Management System (OEMS) provider, following a successful integration with ACTIV Application Programming Interface (API).
The partnership is set to provide customers with tick data alongside Mercurius’ unique, proprietary execution and automation capabilities and Options’ pre-deployed technology stack that consumes, translates, and broadcasts normalised tick data to clients worldwide.
The Mercurius OEMS platform is offered to quantitative trading firms, proprietary trading groups and hedge funds as a turn-key trading solution including IT resources and connectivity, eliminating the need for specialized IT resources and allowing clients to focus on their core business.
“We can significantly reduce our client’s time-to-market”
Danny Moore, Options President and CEO, commented: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with Mercurius to deliver next-level market data solution architecture to our customers across the capital markets. Our pre-deployed technology stack and tick data combined with Mercurius’ automated trading software will offer clients unparalleled connectivity services and expertise, strengthening our existing availability of multi-asset class content. We are very excited to partner our services and enable our clients to capitalise on reduced deployment time and bespoke configuration tools, alongside Options’ state-of-the-art enterprise market data feed.”
Gert Bijker, Managing Director of Mercurius said: “We are excited to offer our clients Options’ unrivalled market data solutions. With pre-installed connectivity to Options’ next generation ActivOne platform, we can significantly reduce our client’s time-to-market. We believe that trading firms should be able to offload their entire technology stack to focus on their core business. Our partnership with Options brings us one step closer to realizing our mission: Automated Trading as a Service.”
The announcement follows Options Technology’s acquisition of ACTIV Financial and subsequent integration of global market data sources, alongside hosted trading infrastructure and direct connectivity to counterparts in the wider capital markets ecosystem.
Options Technology facilitates trading at hundreds of venues worldwide with fully managed infrastructure and connectivity in conjunction with the firm’s private financial cloud services, combining hosting with direct market access, TCO reduction, and best-in-class resiliency and security.
