LuxSE teams up with Colt to enhance distribution of market data via PrizmNet


The Luxembourg Stock Exchange (LuxSE) has the pleasure to announce it will join forces with Colt Technology Services (Colt), a global telecommunications company, which also connects the financial markets – offering solutions along the entire trade life cycle.

Customer-centricity

Over the last few years, Colt has become a recognised innovator and pioneer in software-defined networks (SDN) and network function visualisation (NFV). Today, Colt connects the world’s leading financial centres – 160+ exchanges, brokers, ISVs and Data Vendors and 10,000+ market participants – with deterministic low latency through its financial extranet, Colt PrizmNet.

Through this exciting partnership, Colt Technology Services will swiftly disseminate LuxSE market data and trading to its end-users. LuxSE will deliver its fresh market data to Colt via the Euronext Optiq platform. 

Enhancing and facilitating data dissemination

LuxSE offers real-time, delayed, end-of-day and historical market data, allowing investors and traders precious insights into the latest prices and trends for instruments including fixed-income products and equities. In this way, traders use market data in real-time to make fast and informed decisions about buying or selling, evaluate project pricing trends and calculate market risk on portfolios of investments held by investors.

LuxSE welcomes this partnership with excitement, as market data is essential in providing traders and investors with reliable information on prices and trades for the financial instruments of their choice. Collaborating with Colt marks an important step towards further developing LuxSE’s data dissemination capabilities and reducing network latency between the world’s capital market ecosystems.

Colt is excited about partnering with LuxSE to be able to offer a complete solution for clients who require connectivity for market data and trading access via its PrizmNet network. Through this collaboration, Colt meets the demand from its clients in trading and banking requesting low latency access to LuxSE’s international securities and globally oriented trading centre for green, social and sustainability bonds.
