A Strategic Alliance
Established in 2001, Avelacom’s ultra-low latency network connects to over 80 trading venues across the world making it easier for some of the largest financial services firms to facilitate cross-border and multi-asset trading.
With its highly functional flagship products like ultra-low latency connectivity, co-location, direct market feeds from exchanges, order routing and infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Avelacom helps financial institutions to provide their clients with multi-asset class trading, including forex (FX), equity, crypto, and derivatives.
Commenting on the partnership with Seed CX, Aleksey Larichev, managing Director of Avelacom expressed his excitement over the initiative, adding that the alliance will enable both teams to mitigate some of the issues plaguing institutional crypto trading.
“We ventured into cryptocurrency in 2018 to respond to global institutional requirements. What we discovered were huge tech issues, such as low uptime, slow matching engines, insufficient support and platforms that are unfriendly to latency and jitter sensitive applications. Seed CX is a true benchmark in the digital assets space.”
