Avelacom, the high-performance global connectivity and IT infrastructure provider for the financial services industry, announced that it is opening its third point of presence (PoP) in Tokyo. The new PoP is at the AT TOKYO Premium Colocation Space.
In the past year Avelacom has seen double-digit growth in new business volumes originating in the APAC region, driven by clients demanding professional-grade connectivity services between APAC venues and exchanges, as well as to those in Europe and the USA. The addition of this new PoP is in response to the demands of market makers, prop-trading firms, and investment bank trading desks that have both local and global interests.
With this third PoP in Tokyo, and combined with the existing PoPs at Equinix’s TY3 and at AT TOKYO’s CC1, Avelacom has created a comprehensive portfolio of services that address its clients’ needs to access Japan’s stock, commodity, FX, crypto, and derivatives markets regardless of how latency sensitive their strategy or their physical location.
“Our clients keep asking us to expand our presence in Tokyo, as they desire professional-grade services capable of supporting multi-asset trading in Japanese markets. With our new PoP in the AT TOKYO Premium Colocation Space we add more capabilities for low latency sensitive clients,” said Aleksey Larichev, Avelacom’s Managing Director.
In response to increased interest in Asian Capital Markets amongst institutional clients, Avelacom is further developing its services in the region to support global and intra-Asia trading. In November 2018 Avelacom announced the launch of the lowest latency connectivity between London and Tokyo, and the opening of its new office in Singapore.
