The Democratization of High Performance Infrastructure for Trading
It’s no secret to anyone involved in highly automated and high turnover trading that costs are high and performance opportunities are low relative to the recent past. Add the pursuit of incremental speed to the mix, and the cost-benefit analysis becomes further skewed to the negative.
Fact is that theoretical alpha in this space is shifting in proportion from returns on proprietary infrastructure to returns on proprietary data management. And, as a result, players in this space need to update strategies for re-allocating limited resources.
Fortunately, third party solutions to maintain the performance of certain components of the trading infrastructure at lower costs are gaining adoption. Listen to Paul Rowady, Senior Analyst of TABB Group and Mark Casey, President & CEO of CFN Services, as they discuss key shifts and how new solutions are bridging the gaps.
