Transaction Network Services (TNS) has signed a new agreement with Cboe Europe, one of the largest pan-European equities stock exchange operators by value-traded, to become a registered vendor for its European equities market data.

TNS is offering its connectivity and market data service at the Equinix LD4/LD5 campus, where Cboe Europe’s data center is located, to provide traders with low-latency access for both market data and order routing services.

“Cboe Europe has been a valuable order routing endpoint within our 2,800 strong financial community of interest for many years,” said Jeff Mezger, TNS’ Director of Product Management. “We are delighted to now be extending our relationship with this prestigious group and providing easier, more efficient access to market data from its European equities order books in London and Amsterdam.”

“We are pleased to welcome TNS as a registered vendor,” said Stephen Dorrian, Director, Market Data, at Cboe Europe. “Its technology is used for order routing by many of our trading participants, and we look forward to working with them.”

Cboe is one of the world’s largest exchange holding companies, operating markets across a diverse range of products in multiple asset classes and geographies, including options, futures, US and European equities, exchange-traded products, and global foreign exchange. Its European equities exchange offers trading in more than 6,000 securities from its markets in London and Amsterdam.
