Digital Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE: DLR) and GMEX Technologies Limited (GMEX Tech) said they will establish multiple global hubs for new product exchanges and trading venues in Digital Realty´s facilities.
The first hub will be located in London at Digital Realty´s Chessington data center.
The London trading hub will enable established communities to access and trade emerging markets securities easily, cost-effectively, and securely from a central location. Market operators will be able to expand beyond their own geographical boundaries and provide new opportunities for market participants to access a wider range of asset classes – including securities, commodities, derivatives, and FX.
GMEX Tech will host servers running the various emerging market exchanges it partners with globally in Digital Realty´s London data center. GMEX Tech will also provide the latest central counterparty (CCP) and central securities depository (CSD) market infrastructure and offer such as a managed service.
Digital Realty´s network ecosystem will enable GMEX Tech to create cloud-enabled points of presence (PoPs) for all current and future market participants across the world and enable easy access to the trading hub. The hub is also expected to drive enhanced data center colocation utilization from both established and new market participants.
The London hub will be available from early October 2015. Plans for additional hubs in Chicago and Singapore are expected to be announced in 2016 (supporting Central/South American and Asian markets respectively).
Digital Realty Trust, Inc. supports the data center and colocation strategies of more than 600 firms across its secure, network-rich portfolio of data centers located throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
GMEX Technologies Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of GMEX Group. GMEX Group is a group of companies that offer sustainable and innovative solutions for the new era of global financial markets.
