Comprehensive global connectivity to liquidity using PicoNet™
Beginning in 2011, Pico developed the market-leading venue connectivity network in North America. More liquidity flows through connectivity managed by Pico than any other managed service provider. Our clients trust us to handle their order flow, whether it be principal or agency business because we understand how important it is for them. And now we’ve built the same market-leading connectivity in Europe and Asia.
Pico provides low latency connectivity for access to over 200 global markets venues. Execute proprietary business or client orders on all the major exchanges, dark pools, and MTFs over our ultra- low latency proprietary network with options for 1Gbps, 10Gbps, or 40Gbps handoffs. We offer cost effective shared connectivity or dedicated connectivity options. Latency sensitive clients can also connect from the same colocation facility for lowest latency access either from their own racks or using Pico managed racks and infrastructure. Clients requiring connectivity from remote locations can use PicoNet, using the fastest leased line connections between Pico’s co-location sites to ensure your flow reaches a remote matching engine with the lowest latency possible.
The standard Venue Access services can be enhanced using tailored solutions using proprietary risk systems, wirelesss connectivity, FPGA and other advanced technologies to give our customers the competitive edge they need to win.
This can be combined with our market-leading analytics capabilities to help measure performance, and the support of our 24/7 service operations and delivery teams.
Market Connectivity Made Simple
The total cost of venue connectivity can be very high. Setup, legal, technical and operational hurdles add to the cost and complexity of connectivity, and can be very time-consuming, difficult to administer and create additional strain on your business. Pico has a global team of venue experts who manage relationships, conduct reporting, and liaise with venue technical teams to simplify our customer’s operations. Let us be your team of venue experts.
You can find the extensive list of Equity, Fixed Income, Futures, Options and FX trading venues for which we offer connectivity here.
