Lepus Research: Low Latency – Investment Banking & Technology Vendor Perspective

Posted in the Informatica Forum



#1 Dec 8, 2011
This Lepus Research Report investigates the attitude towards latency in the current market from the perspective of various banks and vendors. Low latency means different things to different people, but essentially, it is about being faster than anyone else in any particular process. Within trading activities, there are many different processes that need to work together to perform a function. Being the fastest ensures a competitive edge and impacts the P&L directly.

The report defines the different features of low latency and looks at the technology involved, the issues and benefits, and gives a view of what is yet to come.

For this report, Lepus interviewed four tier-1 investment banks and thirteen vendors of low latency products in order to provide a holistic view on this subject from a business and technical perspective. The report explores the following areas:

• Definition of low latency – including why low latency messaging performance has become indispensable, and the impact of the emergence of “extreme low latency” platforms.
• Features that affect latency – the major components which should be considered when attempting to achieve low latency are discussed: market data delivery, multicast vs. unicast feeds, co-location, messaging middleware.
• Technology considerations – why banks are focusing on technologies that can reduce latency in areas which are most affected by rapid improvements.
• Issues that affect latency – the physical, geographical, and technical limitations that affect latency when receiving market data and executing transactions.
• Benefits of low latency – many of the benefits are obvious, but there are other hidden benefits too.
• Leading vendors for low latency – who are considered to be market leaders in the view of banks?
• Future strategies for low latency – insights from banks and vendors about the direction they believe that low latency technology will take and what this will mean in terms of strategy.
