The ground-breaking Lucera platform enables customers to accelerate time-to-market, high speed connections to marketplaces and exchanges, and reduce operational and regulatory risk while eliminating the capital expense of building and operating a real-time network of customer and exchange connectivity.
"High frequency trading firms, exchanges, banks and hedge funds can reap huge savings and achieve significant improvements in performance by operating their infrastructure on Lucera," said Jacob Loveless, CEO of Lucera. "Our customers are able to reach new levels of performance by freeing themselves from the time and capital constraints of internal legacy infrastructure. By using Lucera, clients will be able to connect to more customers and liquidity destinations with much better performance at significantly lower cost."
