The Center of Opportunity
Financial technologies are evolving and converging faster than ever. Regulation and globalization only add to the complexity. For some firms, just keeping up can seem almost impossible. The key to success lies, not just in what you deploy, but where you deploy. Equinix financial data centers can help.“this sort of environment delivers a speed advantage in the traditional latency sense because of the close proximity of all the various components. However, it also applies in the sense of time to market and agility. If a trading firm identifies a new opportunity, then it has the strongest possible motivation to capitalize on it as quickly as possible, before it is also spotted by the competition.”
