Prominent industry award highlights Perseus’ breadth of low latency data and highly reliable, global market data solution
New York, May 19, 2016 — Perseus, the world’s leading provider of high-precision, high-speed global market connectivity and managed services, was awarded “Best Low Latency Data/Technology Provider” at the 2016 Inside Market Data Awards last night. In addition to being recognized for its fully-managed suite of services across the trade lifecycle, Perseus was commended for its raw and normalized market data solution, built on top of many of the trading industry’s fastest inter-market routes.
The Inside Market Data Awards — a subsidiary of Waters Technology — recognize industry excellence within market data, reference data and enterprise data management. This marks the second year in a row that Perseus has won an award from Waters Technology, after being recognized as 2015’s “Best Infrastructure Provider to the Sell Side”.
Perseus has presence in over 100 data centers, representing 79 cities in 33 countries on six continents, and offers proximity hosting in over 300 exchanges and trading venues. With offices in New York, Galway, Chicago, London, Hong Kong and Sao Pãulo, Perseus offers global technology scale with local expertise.
Jock Percy, CEO of Perseus, commented, “The trading environment is a challenging one, and our obsession day in and day out is to provide our clients with more than just fast network routes, but fully managed infrastructure solutions, exchange connectivity and globally distributed market data feeds so that they can focus on trading objectives. We are honored to be recognized by Waters Technology, and are building off this momentum in 2016.”
“We congratulate Perseus on being only the third company to win this award since its introduction in 2007, after Interactive Data broke Thomson Reuters’ stranglehold last year,” says Max Bowie, editor of Inside Market Data. “The judges called the combination of low-latency fiber and microwave connectivity that comprises LiquidPath ‘a compelling solution,’ that could be ‘a real disruptor’ as it gains market acceptance.”
Early in May, Perseus added to its low latency global network with real-time market data and direct access to the U.S. Equities and Treasuries markets through Nasdaq’s TotalView and eSpeed ITCH. Further, Perseus offers CME, Nasdaq and eSpeed data over its ultra low latency and diverse wireless network between the CME and Nasdaq colocation facilities.
