We believe Fix Client Connectivity has matured into two distinct categories. Low Latency and Standard. Low latency has turned into an arms race and has become a highly specialized environment. Standard connectivity has become nothing more than a necessary facility used to accommodate daily trading.
CIB believes that Standard connectivity should move into the realm of a utility, not any different to that of a telephone service. It may be necessary to store a new phone number into your favorites but once its there and the number is selected, there is nothing else to worry about.
The call goes through and a conversation ensues. This is how CIB believe Standard connectivity to operate.
