June 11, 2015

Sydney, Australia. (June 11, 2015) – Fusion Systems announced that Raptor, a leading ultra-low-latency market gateway and pre-at-post-trade risk management solution, is live with high volume order flow on ASX Trade, ASX Trade24 and Chi-X Australia venues. Raptor provides brokerages and proprietary desks with FIX/OUCH and market-native direct market access and comprehensive risk management for all major Asia-Pacific cash and derivatives exchanges, including alternative venues. Fusion’s software solution, Raptor, maintains one of the lowest contractually committed latencies in the market, achieving a median latency of 50 microseconds in production while sustaining an order rate of 10,000 TPS with pre-trade risk and compliance checks embedded.

In today’s trading marketplace, where increasingly diverse and widespread regulations are imposed, there is a continued focus on risk management, specifically on pre-trade risk controls. Additionally, lower latency continues to be important to trading strategies, especially when algorithmic and program trading methodologies are fundamental to customers’ business.
