Managed Services

Fixnetix is a market leader in delivering managed technology outsourcing projects for front office IT on a global scale. Our services cover all asset classes and management of all technology components including; hardware procurement, data centre management, networks and server management, the operating system layer from a traders desktop and ultra-low latency co-located environments. Fixnetix works closely with clients to understand their requirements and build bespoke solutions based on shared capabilities, to meet and enhance client requirements while keeping the costs manageable.

For many clients in the capital markets, the trend is to outsource non-core components as resources become strained and service levels within large organisations are affected, in order to focus on IP based differentiators. Over recent years the market has evolved and infrastructure that was once considered a differentiator is now more of a commodity as costs have come down and performance of shared services has soared. As a result, many financial institutions are now outsourcing large portions of their IT and receiving savings of up to 50% over their own internal IT costs. They also benefit from increased performance, responsiveness, agility and flexibility of services. Because of this, they are able to re-allocate budget savings into strengthening their products and services. 

The principle advantages of a Fixnetix managed service can be highlighted as follows:

  •  Improved time to market
  • Technical and commercial agility
  • One source for equipment, telecoms supply and system administration
  • Full monitoring and management reporting 
  • Built in technology refresh
  • On-going capacity management
  • Full exchange administration and change management
  • A global financial extranet to the world's top liquidity venues
