The expansion provides clients across the globe with a single cost-effective and latency-sensitive ecosystem of software, hardware, and connectivity to trade across the U.S. and Europe.

“We’re committed to helping clients reduce the technical complexities around trading and risk management,” said Robert D’Arco, CEO of Rival Systems. “Through partnerships with leading providers in the industry, we offer clients top-of-the-line hardware, low latency connectivity, direct access to exchanges and brokers, and wire-to-wire latency reports for their trading activity.
