Lupus alpha Taps Interxion for Colocation and Access to Market Data

Buy-side firm will host IT applications in Frankfurt hub for sub-millisecond trading strategies.

Lupus alpha Asset Management GmbH, an independent asset management firm, has turned to Internexion to host mission critical IT applications in its financial hub in Frankfurt.

Lupus alpha offers specialist investment concepts to institutional investors and as a result the firm requires a broad choice of low-latency connectivity options and minimum latency to pursue its core business, according to the release. It requires access to real-time market data feeds, enabling sub-millisecond trading strategies.

Lupus alpha selected Interxion because its Frankfurt facility offers a choice of over 150 carriers, provides best-in-class technical infrastructure and complies with strict legal regulations, according to Interxion’s announcement.

Lupus alpha will also benefit from access to the fast-growing financial services community at Interxion. Connectivity via cross connects in the data center will enable access to market data providers such as Bloomberg, Morningstar and FactSet, as well as their SWIFT Service Provider located within the Financial Hub.

"Interxion provides us with cost-effective access to the major exchanges and market data providers we require, thanks to the broad choice of carriers." Commented Matthias Biedenkapp, founding partner and Managing Director, Lupus alpha Asset Management GmbH, in the release. "This is further evidence of Interxion’s position as one of the leading providers of collocation and proximity hosting services to the finance sector.

In a statement, Peter Knapp, Interxion Germany managing director, said, “Asset management firms such as Lupus alpha quite rightly make the highest demands of their data centre infrastructure. A reliable infrastructure enables them to focus on their core business and is something that we at Interxion take extremely seriously.”
