Colt offers Colt PrizmNet, a financial sector extranet service, and MarketPrizm data feeds, hosting and connectivity solutions, as well as the Colt IQ Network which provides data centre and cloud access on-demand.

Housden reports to Tom Regent, chief commercial officer, and is responsible for the company’s work with 18 of the top 25 financial firms globally, more than 50 exchange venues and 13 European central banks.
