IPC and Omniex Announce Strategic Partnership That Will Enable Trading of Crypto-Assets

NEW YORK March 21, 2019 IPC, a leading global provider of secure, compliant communications and networking solutions for the financial markets community, announces that institutional investors can now access an array of crypto-asset exchanges and OTC providers through the IPC Connexus Cloud, thanks to a new partnership with Omniex, an institutionally focused investment and trading platform for digital assets. The strength of the companies’ joint end-to-end solution security protocols, combined with the expanse and composition of IPC’s institutional community of over 6,400 global financial market participants, represents a groundbreaking milestone in the digital asset trading arena.

“IPC is about access, community, and intelligence — exactly what institutional investors want and need from digital assets,” said Bob Santella, CEO of IPC Systems. “The interest, technology, and customers are robust, but until now, securely connecting all three has been a challenge for the market. Through our Connexus extranet ecosystem, the Omniex platform can provide the groundbreaking, secure, intelligent channel for cryptocurrency trading that the financial community has been clamoring for, including the vast number of major financial institutions IPC touches around the world.”

Transforming the Digital Asset Marketplace

In the last two years there has been intense anticipation over the possibility of institutional investment flowing into crypto-assets. The infrastructure for institutional-grade solutions has been rapidly developing, and security is a primary concern for institutional investors accessing any new or existing asset class.  IPC already has a robust community comprised of the world’s top financial institutions, which rely on IPC’s network for orders, intelligence, and other mission-critical resources.

Moreover, this network is protected by Connexus’ robust extranet, keeping essential financial transactions secure and private, be they crypto assets or otherwise.

Omniex, meanwhile, is a complete investment and trading platform for institutional investors to seize the opportunities of the capital markets’ newest asset class, crypto. Recently named the first ever “Best Crypto Trading Platform” by Fund Technology and WSL Award for 2019, the Omniex platform provides portfolio and risk management, trade execution, investment operations, and compliance solutions for institutions.

“Omniex partnering with IPC Systems is a win-win for institutional investors,” said Omniex co-founder and CEO Hu Liang. “Omniex was purpose-built to provide comprehensive order management and execution capabilities for investors to access crypto-assets.  With the established and comprehensive financial ecosystem accessible through IPC’s Connexus extranet, institutions can now easily and confidently make the leap into digital assets. As the sophistication level of investors increases, we strongly believe IPC’s Connexus network along with Omniex’s robust platform provide the right solution with the proper level of security for those institutional clients.”

IPC Systems and emagine Partner for End-to-End Trusted Time Stamping Solution

LONDON March 14, 2019 IPC, a leading global provider of secure, compliant communications and networking solutions for the financial markets community, announced today here at EMEA Trading Conference 2019 that it is partnering with analytics trailblazer emagine Consulting to deliver a comprehensive end-to-end solution for trusted time stamping and clock synchronization for financial market participants, further augmenting IPC’s robust Connexus Chrono offering.

Connexus Chrono, IPC’s leading turnkey clock synchronization and time stamping service engineered to deliver high-precision time feeds globally, will benefit from emagine’s Time Suite Explorer (TsEX), a full-stack enterprise analytics solution that links end-to-end metrics, increasing performance and optimizing event-driven transactions. emagine’s next-generation synchronization and monitoring platform enables full diagnostics, compliance and reporting of your timing system. The combination of IPC and emagine technologies means financial-market participants can be assured the entire life of a transaction will be captured to the nanosecond.

“To meet the wide breadth of financial markets time-stamping requirements, from varying regulatory jurisdictions to trade strategies, financial firms need a service that delivers precise, synchronized, and traceable time feeds,” said David Brown, Chief Operating Officer at IPC Systems. “With the emagine partnership, IPC’s Connexus Chrono accelerates its technological lead over other offerings. Now, no matter where a transaction happens in the financial markets, customers can know and prove when it happens as well because of this unique collaboration.”

Time-as-a-Service (TaaS) has become a necessity in large part due to regulatory compliance with MiFID II RTS-25, SEC Rule 613, which created the Consolidated Audit Trail, and similar statutes placing strict requirements on the accuracy of time stamps and the maximum divergences of the clock from which they are read. Time becomes vital when examining potential violations like insider trading and front-running, for example. Compliance, however, is not the only reason for TaaS, as clock synchronization and time stamping solutions enhance performance visibility, risk mitigation, digital forensics, and accurate financial reporting and auditability.

Underpinning IPC’s and emagine’s solution is leading-edge time stamping technology using atomic clocks synchronized to UTC to ensure the same time is available globally. IPC’s Connexus Chrono is delivered from 10 state-of-the-art facilities around the world at adjustable levels of accuracy ranging from one to 250 microseconds, and is able to expand to nearly any data center globally. Meanwhile, emagine’s Time Suite Explorer platform utilizes machine learning-powered performance analytics to identify and pre-empt potential inefficiencies and inaccuracies, providing uniformed synchronization of system clocks with full traceability and granularity, making time monitoring and management simple, with rich global reports only one click away.

“Time-as-a-Service enables flexible, highly scalable deployments, and our joint solution with IPC blankets the markets in terms of the time stamping and synchronization capabilities,” said Alex Visram, Managing Director of emagine Consulting. “There is no other offering out there that can better keep financial firms focused on running smoothly and profitably instead of watching the time.”
