We have made a significant investment in our hosting, network and security infrastructure.

This means that clients connecting through our ClearVision technology solutions or accessing liquidity can benefit from ultra-low latency and cost efficiencies.

CFH Systems has also entered a direct internet peering agreement with China Unicom to offer clients the fastest, most reliable route with the lowest possible latency when trading between China and Europe. We have invested in dedicated fibres between London and Beijing, bridging the FX liquidity of London with mainland China.

We are committed to further expansion in Asia and are planning a presence in a number of data centres in Hong Kong and China.
