Edgewater Markets is launching a local server in Tokyo.
The deployment of the server in the TY3 data centre will enable customers to connect directly to the Edgewater local environment.
The installation of the TY3 server follows a year’s worth of development by the firm.
It also follows a number of senior hires last year in Edgewater’s New York, London, Singapore and Mexico City offices and the launch of the first-ever local matching engine in Mexico City’s KIO-5 data centre.
“Edgewater Markets continues to innovate by providing bespoke trading solutions improving access to liquidity and credit,” says Juan Carlos Lopez, head of currency products at Banco Intercam.
Edgewater has also recently opened a Monterrey office to help support the local client base there.
“The response from our LatAm business has been outstanding since localised matching was deployed,” explains Skovran Schreder, founder and CEO of Edgewater. “This only further expedited our efforts to engage locally with Asia markets as well.”
Edgewater says that these efforts are part of a broader strategy to expand its global footprint, following a $30 million equity investment from FTV Capital in March of last year.
