The Asia Pacific Stock Exchange (APX) based in Sydney has chosen to deploy its new trading platform within Equinix’s SY1 datacentre.
The new platform will provides an alternative venue for mainland Chinese companies to list and trade.
“The deployment in Equinix’s Sydney data centre provides access to a larger electronic trading community,” APX COO, David Lawrence, said. “We are now in close proximity to key service providers, network operators and customers, which is critical to our business.”
Using Equinix’s global trading ecosystem, APX can provide businesses with opportunities to tap into a diverse range of domestic and international investors to help fuel their Asia Pacific growth.
APX will trade in shares issued by companies, units issued by trusts and other pooled investment products as well as fixed income instruments such as bonds. Equinix will help facilitate these transactions through providing an established business ecosystem of electronic trading participants and access to global networks in a secure environment.
Platform Equinix harbours more than 4500 customers including more than 1000 network providers, and 130 of them are accessible in Australia.
