The Advantages of Enabling Order Execution in Hardware


The increasing volume of orders, pervasiveness of algorithmic trading systems and customer demand for lower latency are outpacing the capabilities of the software- and server-based systems sell-side firms use to do process trades in financial markets globally. This is causing many of these firms to experience lower trading performance, dissatisfied customers and high operational complexity and costs. This white paper looks at the disadvantages of traditional approaches to achieving the guaranteed messaging requirements of order execution and explains the benefits of solutions that perform message routing entirely in hardware.
