Singapore - Thomson Reuters has announced the launch of its market data services inside Singapore Exchange's co-location data centre.

Through the new Elektron Managed Services offering, customers who have their trading applications in the SGX Co-Location site will be able to access Thomson Reuters Elektron Real Time consolidated market data feed via a simple cross-connect.

Thomson Reuters also offers fully managed services for Singapore firms through its own locally-based Elektron Managed Services data centre.
