Fujitsu Limited and Tokyo Stock Exchange Group, Inc. (TSE) today announced the launch of "arrowhead", the TSE's next-generation trading system developed in collaboration with Fujitsu.
"arrowhead" was designed to greatly accelerate the TSE's order response and information distribution speeds. With transaction information, such as orders, contracts, and order books, being processed on triply redundant servers, the system achieves both high speed and high reliability, placing it among the world's most advanced securities trading systems.
A broad spectrum of market participants will benefit from the increased convenience of the new system. Furthermore, the system will enable new trading styles and business models, which will bring a new level of dynamism to Tokyo's stock market.
The advances in finance industry technology over the past several years have led to an expansion in the types of trading activity, with individual investors increasingly trading online, and securities companies and institutional investors employing algorithm-based program trading and other types of trading methods. With the form of trading changing, there has been a need for greater speed in order execution and the distribution of market information.
To respond to this need and enhance the global competitiveness of Tokyo's exchange, Fujitsu and the TSE entered into a wide-ranging collaboration. In order to accommodate the feedback from securities companies, information vendors, individual investors and institutional investors, as well as meet the trends among global stock exchanges, the TSE decided to launch a next-generation trading system called "arrowhead", with an emphasis on speed, reliability, scalability, and transparency. The new system began operation today.
