March 27, 2023

IPC, a leading provider of secure, compliant communications and multi-cloud connectivity solutions for the global financial markets, today announced that Connexus Cloud has been selected as “Best Trading Platform” in the 7th annual FinTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by FinTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global FinTech market today.

Connected to more than 7,000 capital market participants across 750 cities in 60 countries worldwide, Connexus Cloud serves as a breakthrough multi-cloud solution for the global financial markets. Buy-side firms, sell-side firms, inter-dealer brokers, liquidity venues, energy firms, trade lifecycle providers, and market data, as well as clearing and settlement firms, rely on IPC’s Connexus Cloud platform for trade execution, order routing, market data delivery, and accessing trade lifecycle services. By providing and integrating private and hybrid clouds and enabling secure access to over 550 public clouds, Connexus Cloud empowers the use of the cloud for secure, high-performance data and voice communications.

This FinTech Breakthrough Award serves as strong validation for all the hard work we put in to deliver real value at the cutting edge of innovation for our clients. Our portfolio of products are meant to help organizations connect and compete more successfully in electronic and voice trading throughout the world,” said Bob Santella, CEO, IPC Systems. “With Connexus Cloud, market participants are consistently confident that they will have secure, reliable connectivity that facilitates generating alpha, sourcing liquidity, and mitigating risk. More importantly, the solution is continuously improving and expanding as the needs of the industry continue to evolve.

Digital transformation and the everyday integration of technology has had an impact on financial organizations, compelling them to be much more flexible and innovative. The trading industry is quite conservative due to its heavily regulated nature; they can’t afford connectivity issues. To realize the benefits of the cloud, organizations are embracing new ways of working with technologies as globally distributed trading networks come to the fore,” said James Johnson, Managing Director, FinTech Breakthrough. “The strength of the Connexus Cloud end-to-end solution’s security protocols, combined with the vastness and composition of IPC’s widespread community of global financial market participants, represents a ground-breaking milestone in the digital asset trading arena. Connexus Cloud has become an industry mainstay in a changing trading environment. Congratulations on being our pick for ‘Best Trading Platform!’”
