CHICAGO and LONDON June 26, 2013 — G.H. Financials together with Trading Technologies International, Inc. (TT) today announced that G.H. Financials have chosen TT’s high-performance, fully managed hosting solution, TTNET, to provide global derivatives market access to their mutual clients. G.H.

TTNET presently operates data centers in Chicago, New Jersey, London, Frankfurt, Tokyo, Singapore, Sydney and São Paulo.
Peter Lovell, Chief Executive Officer of G.H. Financials, said, “Moving our use of TT onto the TTNET infrastructure is a natural progression in our long established relationship with TT, one of GHF’s core technology partners. When looking for a partner that was able to support our global growth plan with reach into the markets and time zones our clients demand, the TTNET infrastructure had a clear technology edge.”

GHF intends to fully leverage TTNET’s unique hosting solutions to maximize our already high execution rankings on all major exchanges.”
