Igor Marich, FX and Money Market Managing Director at Moscow Exchange, commented: “The new PoPs in Asia, which have been deployed in the most commonly used data centres for connection, will help existing customers optimize their connectivity schemes, while providing new customers with more effective trading solutions and open access to MOEX’s liquidity pool. We are confident that the high-end market access infrastructure will also enable us to attract new participants and their clients to the Russian market.”
