Singapore – May 12, 2022
IPC, a leading provider of secure, compliant communications and multi-cloud connectivity solutions for the global financial markets and trading community, today announced that the firm has won the “Best Connectivity for Financial Services Award” for Connexus Cloud at the Singapore Business Review Technology Excellence Awards 2022.
Connexus Cloud is a multi-cloud platform ecosystem that interconnects more than 7,000 diverse capital market participants across 750 cities in over 60 countries, including buy-side and sell-side firms, trading platforms, market centers, liquidity venues, interdealer brokers, application and market data providers, and clearing/settlement services.
Over the last two years, organizations have been increasingly compelled to be more flexible and to a certain degree, deconstructed; hence market participants can’t afford to have connectivity issues interfering with generating alpha, sourcing liquidity, or mitigating risk. With this objective in mind, the IPC Connexus Cloud platform for data, voice, and enterprise connectivity, has continued to empower firms to trade faster, become more agile, and enhance competitive advantages during this tumultuous time.
IPC has continued to strengthen the Connexus Cloud ecosystem with impactful innovations. In November 2021, IPC launched Connexus Crypto, an arbitrage-accelerating solution, enabling investors to simultaneously buy and sell cryptocurrency in different markets, and take advantage of price differences.
“Digital transformation is a chief concern for IPC’s large community of global financial institutions, which is why we’ve always endeavored to offer the latest innovations, including access to cryptocurrencies,” said Richard Balmer, Director of Network Product Strategy, IPC. “Through IPC’s flagship Connexus Cloud platform, institutional investors can access real-time data and transact on a wide array of both traditional and crypto asset classes. We are extremely honored for Connexus Cloud to be recognized by our industry leaders, customers, and partners.”
The Singapore Business Review Technology Excellence Awards is the most prestigious awards programme for technological innovations, recognizing exceptional companies in Singapore that are riding the digital disruption wave and leading the technological revolution and digital journeys of their respective industries.
