NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/13 -- Telx®, a leading provider of global interconnectivity, cloud enablement services and datacenter solutions, today announced at SIFMA Tech 2013 that Javelin Capital Markets, an OTC derivatives execution platform, has leveraged Telx's network & interconnection rich Cloud Connection Center, "CHI1" at 350 East Cermak Road, Chicago, Illinois, providing Javelin with access to Telx's extensive Financial Services community. As a colocation and interconnection client in Telx's strategically located data center in downtown Chicago, Javelin can now offer Telx's financial community high-performance connectivity to derivatives execution platforms for Interest Rate Swaps and Credit Default Swaps. Javelin offers both anonymous electronic and voice-hybrid methodologies for trade execution.
Newly formed Swaps Execution Facilities (SEFs), that have emerged as aspects of Dodd-Frank become implemented, are incorporating their services in secure data center environments. Low-latency connectivity is a critical component for the OTC Derivatives market linking SEFs and Central Counterparty Clearing (CCPs). With CCPs being located in Chicago, the proximity of Telx's CHI1 facility at 350 East Cermak provides financial customers with high-performance and flexible connectivity to Javelin as well as to other SEF engines from a single location.
"As aspects of Dodd-Frank become cemented in the financial community, the need to establish SEFs in secure environments is a crucial step for our eventual classification as a Swap Exchange Facility," said Michael Black, MD of Infrastructure of Javelin. "Telx's ability to provide us with access in their premier Chicago facility, and their proximity to the clearing venues, swaps execution facilities, and buy-side participants put us in a strong market-leading position to service current and future clients."
"We are excited to have Javelin join the expanding Telx financial ecosystem in our CHI1 facility. Javelin's secure exchange platform with a state of the art user interface is well positioned in the rapidly changing OTC Derivatives market," said Shawn Kaplan, general manager of Financial Services for Telx. "In recent months we have seen an increasing number of trading systems turn to Telx and our CHI1 facility, most recently with the announcement of Sky Road joining Telx's financial community. Javelin and other industry leading financial institutions at 350 East Cermak benefit by connecting with other financial institutions in the facility, which allows them to offer their full suite of services with flexible connectivity to current and future clients."
