"More and more trading firms are connecting to our market via connectivity specialists such as AlgoSpan."

AlgoSpan, the market infrastructure provider, has announced that as of 1 August 2013, customers of AlgoSpan will be able to connect to TOM MTF over "AlgoNet".

Dr Rami Habib, co-founder and director of AlgoSpan said: "We are delighted to connect The Order Machine to the AlgoSpan Low Latency infrastructure. Now AlgoSpan clients can trade on TOM from any one of our existing Exchange Datacentres over "AlgoNet". In a fragmented and competitive market, we are increasingly seeing trading firms and fund managers looking at alternative venues for liquidity and price improvement. TOM is gathering a lot of interest and we are very happy to be able to offer TOM as an alternative venue to our clients".

Willem Meijer, CEO of TOM, "TOM has now realised a significant market share of more than 25% in Dutch equity & index options and aims for a market share of 30% - 40% by year end. We are therefore very pleased that more and more trading firms are connecting to our market via connectivity specialists such as AlgoSpan."
