There’s much talk of late about whether investment in reducing latency is worth it. OK, that’s expressing this issue very simply, but for sure there is more focus on determining actual business benefits resulting from lowering latency, and the associated technology costs.
One global investment bank turned to Sumerian to help them bridge business and technology for FX trading, specifically to gain improved visibility into its latency position – if and how latency impacts fill rates, currency pairs and client streams.
See the attached case study from Sumerian. And feel free to add your own comments – have you engaged in similar efforts, and what have been your experiences to date?
