London Capital Group (LCG), a UK-based contract for difference and spread betting provider, has selected information routing specialist Solace to consolidate and upgrade the technology it uses to distribute real-time price information to applications and traders around the world.

Handling information routing between LCG’s internal applications, Solace technology will reduce latency and simplify data flows and ensure LCG applications are always synchronised and customers get good responsive service. The company selected Solace technology for its superior performance, ease of implementation and management, and built-in high availability capabilities that offer reliability and robustness in all market conditions. Solace’s smart data movement technologies use open APIs and protocols to rapidly and reliably route information between applications, devices and people across clouds.

Panayiotis Annivas, chief information officer at LCG, says: “Solace technology helped us upgrade our information pipeline to ensure data is shared in a fast and reliable manner. We are now able to easily connect all elements of our trading applications, so we can efficiently scale to meet the changing needs of our business.”

Keith McAuliffe, general manager of financial services at Solace, says optimisation of data management is key to growth and client retention in contract for difference and spread betting markets. He adds: “Our work with LCG is a good example of how our technology can help businesses simplify data movement infrastructure while improving ability to collect, distribute and leverage increasing amounts of real-time data.”
