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.

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.”
