Horizon H3 Trading Platform now Live
21 September 2022, Paris. Horizon Software, a global leading vendor of Market Making, Agency and Algo Trading Technology, announces today that clients are now live with Horizon H3 in Europe, Asia Pacific and the Middle East. This new version represents the success of several years invested in research and development.
H3 is the next generation of Horizon single cross-asset platform, based on a highly distributed and modular architecture with public APIs for each service. This allows clients to support different types of business flows within the same environment and with a single user interface. This includes our traditional principal trading flow, as well as our new version of agency trading, with the ability to scale up to handle a large universe of instruments and high volumes of executions. Moreover, special attention has been placed on the packaging and configuration automation, which ultimately improves Horizon’s time-to-market for a continuous delivery.
In addition to market making and global connectivity, the new platform provides new trading services such as a composite spreader, dispersion, high touch and DMA workflows, digital assets support and is designed for Hosting and Managed Services.
Olivier Masdebrieu, CTO at Horizon Software explains: “More than 17 clients have gone live with H3 smoothly. We are constantly looking to enhance our platform by enriching its functionality, as well as investing on the technical side. The next significant milestone will be integrating Aeron, an open-source message transport solution focused on performance and reliability.”
Guillaume Poitevin, Global Head of Sales at Horizon Software adds: “This project is a step forward to better serve our clients worldwide and offer them an improved experience. H3 has a services-oriented architecture that provides various performance improvements regarding scalability, latency, and on demand loading. We are proud of this new version, demonstrating our commitment to deliver the best trading services for our clients”.
