London Stock Exchange’s Data Centre Migration Boosts Market Quality and Efficiency

Subscribe to our newsletter

The London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) has reported substantial improvements in market quality and performance following its data centre migration and upgrade in February this year. The data centre, which caters to the London Stock Exchange, Turquoise, and TRADEcho services, is not only more innovative and robust but also eco-friendly, powered entirely by green energy.

The upgrade led to a 50% reduction in average round-trip latency for equities and a 66% reduction for ETFs, leading to swifter, more predictable order confirmations. The London Stock Exchange’s role as a price-former in UK Equities has also been enhanced, with a 9% increase in FTSE 100 EBBO settings and a 5% increase in the FTSE 100 EBBO Size Contribution.
