Activ Financial Expands into Emerging Markets

Subscribe to our newsletter

Activ Financial, a global provider of fully managed low-latency market data solutions, today announced the expansion of its market data coverage into emerging markets with the addition of over 80 new exchanges in the African, Caribbean, Eastern European, Middle Eastern and South American regions. The addition of these new markets brings Activ’s global exchange coverage to nearly 200 worldwide, solidifying its position as a truly global player in the delivery of managed consolidated data feeds.

Activ is continually focused on completing global coverage of equities, futures and options exchange traded products and expanding into OTC instruments.  Activ now carries two consolidated Forex feeds on ActivFeed and has feed handlers for four FX ECNs and nine direct bank FX desk feeds on the Activ platform for ultra low-latency requirements serving the entire latency spectrum in the same API.

“With exchanges in emerging markets upgrading systems to compete on a global scale, Activ is able to connect to their feeds and in cases of electronic markets, co-locate ticker plants quickly to provide local access to low-latency and global access to distant market data,” said Frank Piasecki, President of Activ Financial. “Since our entry into the European market two years ago, Activ evolved from a best-in-class North American and Asia Pacific regional provider to a true global contender. We will continue to focus on extending our footprint both geographically and to new asset classes to provide co-location and access to the lowest possible latency for our customers.”

Each of these feeds, which are accessible by Activ’s proprietary high speed network offering, ActivNet, provides access to locally aggregated raw direct exchange feeds, via ActivFeed Direct, as well as globally aggregated exchange feeds via ActivFeed and ActivNet combined with full co-location. Standing out amongst the competition, ActivFeed is powered by all ActivFeed Direct installations at the ActivNet data centers. This decentralized architecture provides best-in-class latency characteristics for both local and international exchanges at any ActivNet data center in addition to the highest degree of resiliency. ActivNet is also carrier-neutral, allowing Activ to leverage the best providers between points where reliability is critical.
