Asset managers are in constant communication with brokers, trading counterparties and other institutions throughout the financial services industry to purchase and sell many securities types. Managing these communications can become complicated and inefficient.
That’s why we created ECI Link: a highly secure, redundant and available communications network for today’s buy-side firms.
ECI Link combines Internet, FIX, market data and voice connectivity over a single converged network to power a buy-side firm’s trading operations.
The ECI Link Network
The foundation of ECI Link is our ECINet Private Network which serves as the communications gateway for more than 300 buy-side firms and delivers highly secure and redundant Internet-based communication.
ECI Link offers direct connectivity to the SunGard Transaction Network (STN) and NYSE Technologies' Marketplace giving firms one communication platform to all of their trading counterparties, including broker/dealers, dark liquidity pools, crossing networks and other execution venues.
- STN is a trade automation and connectivity solution that links institutions throughout the financial services value chain, facilitating the purchase and sale of securities.
- NYSE Technologies’ Marketplace is a community of over 630 Broker-Dealers with execution destinations globally.
Managed by Eze Castle’s dedicated communications team, ECI Link simplifies the startup process and ongoing management of a firm’s communication network. Eze Castle can quickly deploy ECI Link to provide firms with the key communications components necessary to jumpstart trading operations.
Once ECI Link is in place, our team monitors the quality of service delivered and proactively makes adjustments as necessary to ensure connectivity across ECI Link is operating at peak performance.
